Anne Hathaway Joins Protesters at Bring Back Our Girls Rally

Anne Hathaway lets her voice be heard while joining in on a protest at a Bring Back Our Girls rally held on Thursday afternoon (May 8) in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old actress was joined by her husband Adam Shulman at the rally. They both held up signs and Anne even grabbed a megaphone to rouse up the crowd while raising awareness about the kidnapping of nearly 300 girls in Nigeria.

I love Anne. People are always ragging on her for no reason. She’s actually very intelligent and does so much good work. She visited St. Jude’s last week and is participating in this protest today. I don’t know why people hate on her.

Who are these losers protesting, the kidnappers are in some jungle in Nigeria , not in New York and I doubt they have CNN just another celebrity uses a tragedy for publicity Why did the media and political class only care about this group when they went after girls, the Islamic terrorists Boko Haram have been killing Christian boys after a while now.

” On February 25, between 40 and 59 children were killed by the fundamentalist militant group. Early that morning, Boko Haram terrorists attacked a Christian boarding school and shot many of children, aged 11 to 18, while they slept. Some of the students were gunned down as they attempted to flee. Others had their throats slit. In some buildings, Boko Haram militants locked the doors and set the building alight. The occupants were burned alive.

All of the victims were boys. Reports indicated that the young girls the militants encountered were spared. According to the BBC, the militants told the girls to flee, get married, and shun the western education to which they were privy, by march over 1000 boys had been killed”

Only when it’s a victim class do the media and political act… Gays, women .

@#3 . Hillary Clinton Blocked State Department from Naming Boko Haram as a Terrorist Organization.. And now Hilary & Michelle Obama sending furious tweets, we have the hashtag diplomacy . Who needs foreign policy or military we have #hashtag diplomacy . They’ll hit Boko Haram where it really hurts: On social media , directed primarily at giving Obama’s bored do-nothing followers a new daytime soap opera to follow.

Every retweet is like a gleaming sword for social justice.

So retweet, Obama Soldiers. Retweet like the wind.

@Nic: The biggest loser is you.

@Zimmy: But there were multiple valid reasons for the State Department to disagree with the Justice Department and other agencies dealing with counterterrorism — such as the FBI and CIA — who urged State to place Boko Haram on the Foreign Terrorists Organization (FTO) list. “Designation is an important tool, it’s not the only tool,” a former State Department official told the Beast. “There are a lot of other things you can do in counterterrorism that doesn’t require a designation.” This includes boosting development aid to undercut the causes of unrest and deploying the FBI to assist in tracking down Boko Haram, both of which the U.S. actually did.

— In addition, Clinton didn’t act in a vacuum to determine not to designate Boko Haram back in 2011. Scholars on Twitter who focus on the region, terrorism broadly, and Islamist groups in particular were quick to point out that not only were there few benefits and many possible costs to designation, many of them had argued against listing Boko Haram several years ago. In a letter to the State Department dated May 2012, twenty prominent African studies scholars wrote Clinton to implore her to hold off on placing Boko Haram on the FTO list. Acknowledging the violence Boko Haram had perpetrated, the academics argued that “an FTO designation would internationalize Boko Haram, legitimize abuses by Nigeria’s security services, limit the State Department’s latitude in shaping a long term strategy, and undermine the U.S. Government’s ability to receive effective independent analysis from the region.”

Zimmy, you sound like every Republican pundit parrot out there. You take your shiny ball out of your pocket and hold it up to the American people and then scream words like OBAMA CLINTON ISLAMIST TERRORIST BAD BAD OBAMA CLINTON TERRORIST while refusing to give all the information because you don’t want the American public to be informed, you want them stupid and angry for all the wrong reasons. Because if you can deflect from the real issues at hand, like Republicans sitting on their asses and doing nothing for the American people minus the richest of the rich, then you can roll the ignorant into the voting booth to vote against their best interests. I’m surprised you didn’t yell out BENGHAZI! as well.

@Nic: I am with you…..how is a protest in upscale LA going to get the girls rescued?? A bomb should have been dropped on Boko Haram strongholds years ago…..no thanks to the PC police in the state department under Hillary. When are they going to acknowledge that al qaeda terrorists groups are wreaking havoc all over the world. My bad, the only people that Mr. Obama can summon up energy for is berating conservatives and any one else who does not agree with him and his supporters. Hash tag is not going to cut it, Anne. But I am sure your heart is in the right place.

You just can’t do anything good these days. There are always some losers on the internet waiting to criticize you no matter what you do, just because you are celeb…..

Anne gets behind a good cause. The children’s hospital and this one. She’s a good heart.

I get the feeling that this tragedy is being turned into a circus or PR opportunity by “stars” and politicians.Why do you need to “raise awareness” for something that has been reported worldwide.

The #hashtag intervention , these people should be embarrassed, especially Michelle Obama .. too bad she doesn’t know anyone powerful enough to help with the tragedy , instead she stuck hastaging and tweeting.. 50 years from now when they Obama Presidency is studied there will be no need to be told that youth vote was pivotal to Obama’s elections.

Ah because screaming at LA commuters is really going to help those girls, looking at those pictures, jump & bandwagon come to mind.

Has America become this powerless that the First Lady looking all sad & grim is reduced to twitter to stop brutal terrorism , what message does that send. The sad thing here is that the low-information crowd that’s on Twitter & blogs will think we’re actually doing something about it. When people point out the ridiculous of Michelle Obama empty gestures…. they’ll say, “At least she is trying,What are you doing? At least Mrs. Obama cares! At least they’re trying to get them back.”…. All media publicity , to move the low information, easily conned crowd, their voters .

From the Liberal Daily Beast; ….. …… “The State Department under Hillary Clinton ( Obama could have overruled her) fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former US officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.”… And people say Hillary had no accomplishments as Secretary of State, this & Benghazi , getting a Ambassador killed , lying then covering it up , she has accomplishments just not ones to be proud of.

happy to see a celebrity fight for something important; I love her more now!

This is so stupid. You gonna protest about something that happen across the world. How is that going to help?

Let the Nigerians deal with their sh*t.

YOU are the ONLY loser here.

Anne and her dad look a little silly holding those signs, seriously, people in L.A. only care about their shiny cars and texting while driving. like Tom said “Ah because screaming at LA commuters is really going to help those girls, looking at those pictures, jump & bandwagon come to mind.”

America doesn’t notice. America doesn’t care. These africans are not American, just as Hathaway is a caucasian fraud pretending to be American. Just as America doesn’t notice or care about NYLAWOOD and imported media and entertainment sites like JJ. America doesn’t notice. America doesn’t care.

THE WAY IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @ 05/10/2014 at 6:18 am

Not OUR girls, but then Hathaway is a fake American.

In a video, Anne said that only 5% of Nigerian girls get an education. THAT IS BULLSHIT! That is not true at all! Everyone in Nigeria gets an education and the only reason the US is involved in this is so that they will earn a form of reward after and because they will be recognized as heroes. They do it for the financial aid and they say that they need money to help them. Think about this, Nigerians never ask the West for help because they are strong willed and will do anything alone! I don’t know why the Nigerian Gov. is asking for help, it’s strange. The US knew about this for a while but only gave this information out about 2 weeks ago after they saw the financial aid.
