    She looked so tired yesterday and dare I say nervous? She probably didn’t sleep a wink and then she was also just in Malta prepping for a film she will likely direct. She looks more rested today and I really like her pants – I bet I’m in the minority?

    Just had my daily dose of Angelina, lol.
    She looked amazing as usual, just flawless. Her skin is so dewy and fresh close up. If ever a woman should be plugging skin products it is her not the leathery one who is pumped up with fillers.

    Angelina’s face is accentuated by the natural contours that age brings. Other actresses have those contours in their 30′s then mysteriously lose them in their 40′s when their face suddenly resembles a fat baby’s bottom, all round and puffy!

    @L:

    I don’t think saying she was nervous yesterday is a bad thing. I’m sure she was nervous. This kind of Summit has never happened before. She has a lot of responsibility riding on her/Hague’s shoulders. and you never know how the first day is going to go. Will people turn out; will it be perceived in a positive way. So yes nervous is a good word.

    I love the pants. I would wear those daily. Comfortable and very chic. She looks good.

  • Trouble in paradise

    Why is pitty- fool all of a sudden traveling with angelina like a lost puppy dog again like he did when they first started? In china ange had 3 kids with her which is normal when she is traveling without pitty-fool so why did he have to tag along? Is it just me or does it seem like he is trying to stay close to her because maybe she’s not too happy with him? During interviews she talked about the time they worked at the same time during fury and unbroken. She said it wouldn’t happen again , not because missing pitty-fool but because she had all the kids with her for most of the time and it was difficult she says. Then she went onto say but brad was happy to film in London so that’s what he did. Read between the lines and she was upset that he would rather be onset than with his kids.

    ———
    I knew she would change after the mastectomy and then after filming for months away from pitty-fool. Add what she said about the seperate filming with how she describes her love for pitty-fool as being about family and we got a new Angie who doesn’t really care what pitty-fool does anymore.

    ———
    When he had ange by the tinies he wouldn’t travel as much with her but now that she is slowly but surely slipping away from him now he wants to act like super partner and super dad again.
    ——-
    That shirt he wore with drawing of the two on it was so to get angie because he knows how important the children are to her and wearing a shirt they made for him would touch her heart. ..and also some attention as he walked through the airport knowing full well that the media would talk about it.

    Like I said to you earlier I love Angie’s understated casual approach to dressing, she has more important issues than worry herself sick of which designer dress to wear and how should my hair be styled today etc. etc. now if that was you know who, you know they’d be a team of stylist and Hairboys getting them preened for the occasion LOL.

    Angie is such a busy woman, no wonder she can’t gain weight. 4 days summit, then father’s day, then June 23 Maleficent Japan premiere, then pre-production of Brangelina new movie, I read they will film it in August. Where does she have so much energy? She is a superwoman.

Rose the problem with the Troll is that no matter what name he/she/It choses to post under it still is filled with utter filth, which always exposes this he/she/It of its true nature. Trolls are a running joke like their idol Aniston is,

    Rose, I bet Ticky is pulling Huvana’s hair out since yesterday for a Photo Op or ANY type of news to remain relevant, after all she has made vows she will not be forgotten or in other words she likes to Stalk the JP’s no matter at what cost. So I have a feeling within this week we will have a sighting of Squiggy & Ticky holding hands trying to look happy.

    Sorry to but in to your conversation I love the pants too and like the color as well. In regards to your comment of “Angie’s nervousness” I agree with you too , considering it was the first major event to be held of this kind, it had the added pressure and uncertainty how this will be perceived by the media, but first and foremost especially by the victims, their families, the organizations/Charities that are representing them. Their scrutiny would have been the make or break of this Summit , now If this wasn’t pressure then what is. Since yesterday seeing and hearing the warm reception both Angelina & MR Hague have received, its so heartwarming to see and hear especially from those who are effected in one way or form. I know they still have a long way to go, but they are being given the backup of all these people. Of course the added pressure of the” First day, First Speech” is out of the way f no wonder Angie looks a bit relaxed today.

    Press release
    .
    William Hague and Angelina Jolie demand end to impunity for warzone rape
    .
    The Foreign Secretary William Hague and Special Envoy Angelina Jolie launch Protocol to increase prosecutions for sexual violence in conflict.
    .
    The overwhelming majority of perpetrators of sexual violence in conflict are not held to account for the crimes they commit. This has led to a global culture of impunity for warzone rape.
    .
    The new International Protocol, the first of its kind, aims to set an international standard for how to investigate and document sexual violence, as a way of increasing the number of prosecutions for these crimes worldwide and ensuring that victims are cared for.
    .
    Mr Hague and Ms Jolie are calling for governments to announce their support for the Protocol, and pledge to implement it in full. They want it to become a turning point in how crimes of sexual violence in conflict are investigated, and ultimately deterred.
    .
    William Hague said:
    .
    This Protocol is the first of its kind, and we hope it will play a vital role in shattering the culture of impunity for sexual violence in conflict.
    .
    This impunity is a major factor in why these crimes continue.
    .
    Up to 50,000 women were victims of sexual violence during the war in Bosnia, but only just over sixty people have been successfully prosecuted for it.
    .
    From Central African Republic to Sudan to Syria, untold thousands of rapes have gone entirely unpunished.
    .
    We know that one of the primary reasons for the lack of prosecutions for sexual violence in conflict is the difficulty of gathering evidence that can stand up in court, and the trauma and the stigma faced by survivors in the process.
    .
    This Protocol is designed to overcome those fundamental barriers.
    .
    And we are determined to ensure that prosecutors, police forces, peacekeepers and civil society on the front line in this struggle know how best to document and investigate sexual violence in conflict so that perpetrators can be successfully prosecuted.

  • well

    As usual, Angie shines and what she is doing is SO IMPORTANT..  when you see POVs expressed like the one “intellectual” George Will did in his recent piece about r*ape victims in college (Will took a novel approach, arguing instead that colleges have made “victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges” and therefore “victims proliferate.” )- ugh…I wonder if he has any daughters/nieces/friends?
    -

    Here is good a comment from Will’s original article, which is embedded link in the daily beast link below.

    Wow. More incredible T*liban rantings from the Legitimate R*pe party.  It’s not enough for George Will to be fired (as practically the whole world is calling for today). The modern West really needs to ship the entire Spanky and Our Gang “He Man Wimen Hater’s Klub” GOP over to Afghanistan, so they can finally be reunited with their ideological soul mates. They are simply not fit anymore to live in the liberal modern West. They’re simply “not the right century”.  Get lost George. Get lost, T*liban.

  • Just saying

    Just think about it that the new Brad&Angie movie comes together so quick. In May, at Maleficent London premier, Angie said they were thinking about working together. In New York, Angie said she had a few meetings about her next director movie that I think she was referring to this movie. In LA, she confirmed to Jerry P of ExtraTV the movie. In China, she said her next movie would be with Brad. Now they were scouting locations for the movie, just in one month. Amazing.

  • Rose

    @Phool.: Phool, the Chew is a cooking show. It’s really good. Phool, you need to get a job where you can watch tv during the day, lol. :-). Don’t ask me the names of the panel, I know Carla, Mario Batali ?, Dr Oz’s daughter and two other men.

    Phool, Ticky is over, not even her fans care about her. There are a few people on the net talking about her but you can tell is just a few because we always read the same comments everywhere, eg why is Angie so thin, why can’t she put on weight, she stole poor Brad because he don’t know his way back to her although he wants to go back, NOT. Why is Angie dressing Shi like a boy, why is Angie always wearing black, why don’t they do something with ZZ’s hair, why is Brad always dressed the
    same clothing, why font Brad take a shower, (I guess they never saw tacky in those dirty jeans and stinking booths, his words), why not Angie wear a bra, she’s a home wrecker, although Ticky was seen with Vince Vaughn humping him on the hotel balcony long before brad and Angie was seen together as a couple. Phool, it never ends, trolls are psychopaths, sociopaths, stalking losers with S A D I S T tendency. I gotta go my friend.

    Published: 16:22, 11 June 2014 | Updated: 16:29, 11 June 2014

    .
    Angelina Jolie today appeared visibly moved and close to tears at the ‘End Sexual Violence in Conflict’ summit in London, which she is co-hosting conference with Foreign Secretary William Hague. The summit is the largest ever held on subject of sexual violence in war.
    .
    The actress’ eyes welled up as she listened to victims of sexual assault speak about their experiences and spent time with them afterwards, discussing the issues they face and embracing one delegate.
    .
    Clutching fellow activist and peacemaker Neema Namadamu on this, the fourth day of the summit, the actress struggled to contain her emotions.
    Neema is an advocate for change in Congo, and founder of the Maman Shujaa-the ‘Hero Women of the Congo’ who fight for the rights of women. She who was struck down with polio at age 2, and became the first disabled woman to graduate from Congo’s national university.
    .
    She began campaigning when her 25-year-old daughter was attacked by a group of men metres from her own home in the Congo.
    Angelina, Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, also embraced other delegates who spoke at the event.
    .
    The summit has seen diplomats, officials and non-profit representatives from more than 100 countries gathered to press for the rights of victims — women, men and children alike. With the cameras of the world focused on her, Jolie said she wanted to dedicated the conference to a rape victim she and Hague recently met in Bosnia.
    ‘She felt that having had no justice for her particular crime, in her particular situation, and having seen the actual man who raped her on the streets free, she really felt abandoned by the world,’ Jolie said.
    ‘This day is for her.’
    .
    Angelina was also interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour this morning, talking about how she came to be involved in working to end sexual violence.
    ‘I’ve met survivors and spent time with them. I’d heard their stories and became very emotionally involved and I thought – what can I possibly do to help,’ she said.
    The programme also shared the harrowing tales of two women who suffered sexual violence during conflict.
    On women described her attack during the Rwanda genocide in these words: ‘I didn’t see their faces, I don’t know them, how can you see someone who is hitting you in the eyes? How will you know someone who is inserting a gun barrel into your mouth, and then between your legs? Then he leaves, and another one enters.’
    .
    Another woman spoke of her attack in Minova in the Democratic Republic of Congo: ‘The man said that he wanted to rape me, that if I refused he is going to kill me. Then another five men came. They all raped me. My daughter keeps asking me about her dad. When I try to reveal who her father is, it is really hard for me.
    ‘I fear also telling her because a lot of men raped me… it is really hard for me to tell my daughter.
    ‘I just feel really depressed, when I think of it I burst into tears. I feel like I am nothing. Sometimes I even feel like dying .’
    .
    A rape survivor who attended the conference today, Wangu Kanja, from Kenya, who has set up her own organization to help others, said she hoped the summit will send a message that governments cannot continue to ignore the issue.
    ‘I’m really hoping that from this the Kenyan government will be forced to do something,” she said hours after the summit began.
    .
    William Hague compared sexual violence in war zones to slavery as an injustice that demands action.
    ‘As was said with slavery in the 18th century, now we know the facts, we cannot turn aside,’ he said.
    .
    Others far afield also offered support. Pope Francis, who has made combatting sex trafficking and human slavery one of his priorities, sent a tweet on Tuesday in support of the summit’s work, saying ‘Let us pray for all victims of sexual violence in conflict, and those working to end this crime.’
    .
    Hague and Jolie are set to launch a guidance document on best practices today to help strengthen prosecutions for rape in conflicts. Hague will also host a meeting Thursday on tackling Boko Haram, the Islamic terror group that abducted more than 300 schoolgirls and young women in Nigeria in April.
    .
    The pair have campaigned hard on the issue of sexual violence for two years, and on Tuesday they were welcomed with cheers from others fighting for the cause as they toured a lively fringe program featuring photo exhibitions, poetry readings, and artists performing skits.
    .
    Nigerian rap and soul singers sang about rape and other problems facing young Africans, while volunteers taught Swahili folk songs in workshops similar to those performed in conflict zones to help reduce trauma. An eclectic group of charity workers and computer experts brainstormed on ways to use technology to improve reporting on sexual violence

    Bringing Women to the Table to Address Sexual Violence
    ===================================
    .
    By MARY ROBINSON June 11, 2014 11:53 am

    .
    In war zones, rape is a weapon. We cannot claim to be serious about stopping war crimes if we do nothing to prevent and punish these heinous acts – and if women are not part of the solution every step of the way.
    .
    Thanks to the rallying efforts of William Hague and Angelina Jolie, dozens of foreign ministers and legions of advocacy groups are gathering in London this week to grapple with a global response to sexual violence in conflict. This is an unprecedented show of ambition; governments have not given these crimes the necessary attention in the past.
    .
    Now the blind spot will be uncovered: women – and men, too – are at risk of sexual abuse wherever gunfire rattles and militias roam. Like other forms of violence, sexual violence shatters people, families, and livelihoods. It leaves behind a legacy of trauma, making it more likely that the next generation will continue fighting, killing, and allow sexual violence to fester.
    .
    A history of modern warfare reveals sexual abuse at almost every turn: according to the United Nations, up to 250,000 Rwandan women were sexually assaulted in three months of genocide in 1994. In Yugoslavia, 60,000 women were abused between 1992 and 1995. Sierra Leone and Liberia jointly witnessed up to a hundred thousand cases over the course of a decade in the 1990s.
    .
    These days, the Democratic Republic of Congo makes headlines with reports of rape on an alarming scale, much of which is connected to the conflict in the eastern regions. The UN reports more than 200,000 cases of rape in the country since 1998. In April this year, a detailed report by the UN human rights office in Congo provided evidence based on over 3,600 cases in the past three years – a conservative figure based on registered cases only. The oldest victim was 80 years old. The youngest was two.

    .
    As UN special envoy to the Great Lakes region, I travel to Congo frequently. When I address the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London this week, I will speak up for the women I meet in Bukavu, Goma and Kinshasa. I will remind delegates that the women of Congo are not victims first and foremost. Above all, they are leaders. They hold their communities together. They are the region’s best hope for peace.
    .
    Former President Jimmy Carter is my colleague within a group of independent leaders called the Elders, founded by Nelson Mandela. He has recently written a visionary book arguing that women’s discrimination is the most pervasive human rights violation in the world, perpetuated and preserved by men in ascendant positions everywhere.
    .
    Sexual violence highlights that very injustice in peace negotiations, historically the preserve of male elites. There is no question that women suffer hugely. So why is their experience of war not deemed equal to men’s at the negotiating table, when the blueprints for peace are being drawn?
    .
    Moreover, in volatile settings, like eastern Congo, where the state has broken down and a security vacuum sets in, women are the ones who lead and organize the community while the men are swept up in conflict. We have seen women leaders heal divisions in Northern Ireland and Liberia, but the lessons from these successes have not significantly changed our thinking worldwide.
    .
    The people of Congo are used to hollow peace agreements – “bad men forgiving bad men in front of cameras,” as the saying goes – only for the pomp and promise to fade away at the next round of gunfire. We need a different approach, one that includes the society as a whole, with a due role given to women. As Genevieve Inagosi, the Congo government’s Minister of Gender puts it: “Women do not only have the solutions. They are the solutions.”
    .
    Mindsets are evolving. The United Nations Security Council has passed several resolutions recognizing the need to include women in peace processes. We need to push the agenda further at every opportunity.
    .
    One reason I am hopeful is that, after this week’s summit, millions of silent victims, most of whom are women, will know there are actions they can take to defend their dignity. The top priorities at the meeting are to improve the documentation and investigation of crimes, and to provide better support networks for survivors.
    .
    The greater aspiration is that societies in conflict will know that these war crimes will not go unpunished and that transitional justice can be made available to deal with these abuses swiftly. The stigma will shift from the victims to the criminals. If rape is no longer deemed a warrior’s accepted privilege, we will be one step closer to peace.
    .
    Mary Robinson is a member of The Elders and UN Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region. She is a former President of Ireland (1990-1997) and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002).

    According to Australian director David Michôd, he and Brad met together when Brad was visiting Angie in Australia, they had a long meeting about The Operators movie, they were getting along very well. That’s why later it was announced David Michôd was the writer and director for The Operators. Both Brad and Angie are great at time and schedule management.

    Magnificent Maleficent
    ===============
    .
    11-Jun-2014
    .
    Fifty-five years ago, the character Maleficent placed a spell on the young Sleeping Beauty in the animated feature released by Disney in 1959. Now, this popular villain has taken human form, stepping out of the traditionally animated cel and onto the live-action set infused with state-of-the-art CGI in this classic story as Disney once again brings this fantastic tale to the big screen.
    .
    In “Maleficent,” the story focus is on the title character rather than the sleeping princess Aurora, as was the case in the original animated film.
    “This movie is about a character we’ve only known as hard-hearted, and our story answers the question, ‘Why?’ I’d like audiences to feel like they’ve entered a world they’ve never seen before with ‘Maleficent,’ and I hope they come away feeling like no one is beyond redemption,” says producer Joe Roth.
    .
    “Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty,” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As she grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
    The movie is directed by Robert Stromberg.

    The character Maleficent was a Disney creation introduced in the 1959 animated movie “Sleeping Beauty,” but the story of the princess who falls under a spell of eternal sleep has been told for many years – at least four hundred years, under various titles, and maybe even longer still. The Brothers Grimm even borrowed heavily from a 1697 version of the story by Charles Perrault. Throughout its long history, the elements of the story have changed, with the only consistent one being the spinning wheel, which has caused all the princesses of this tale to fall into a deep slumber.
    .
    Maleficent had been portrayed as a jealous, vengeful villainess married to the king, and as a wicked fairy in the version by Perrault. The latter is the course Disney chose for the 2014 movie. Yet, it was important to Stromberg to have enough elements of the Disney animated “Sleeping Beauty” so people would not be disappointed.
    .
    “It was important that those people who recognize and are fans of the original classic film feel that they cannot only see it realized in a new light, but also see the genesis of some of those things they saw in the original film,” he explains. “So, it’s a new spin on Maleficent, but at the same time, we’ve woven in enough elements that people will immediately recognize to be from the original film.”
    .
    Writer Linda Moolverton came up with a past for the character that leads up to the moment when she curses the baby Aurora. “It’s a reinvention; it’s not just a retelling of the same story,” she says.

    Visual Magic
    —————
    “Maleficent” began production on June 11, 2012, at England’s Pinewood Studios, where most of the filming took place. It required five months of shooting on six soundstages and thousands of yards of back lot and paddock area to complete principal photography.
    .
    The production used a number of extraordinary physical sets, both interior and exterior. In all, there are about 40 sets, from a 12-foot-square room to the 5,000-square-foot Great Hall. “They’re complicated sets architecturally and technically,” says production designer Gary Freeman.
    .
    But the “real” sets had limitations. So, a plethora of digital backgrounds – and characters – were made. Performance capture was used to create the CG versions of the pixies when they are small. (See “Tricky Pixies” in the May/June 2014 issue of CGW.) Another digital challenge was the creation of Maleficent’s wings (also detailed in that story).
    .

    The shape-changing Diaval was also a challenge for the VFX team. Originally just a raven in the animated film, he is transformed in the latest movie into any animal Maleficent wishes. “Those transformations made creating this character very difficult for us, especially because you see different transformations throughout the film. You want every one of those transformations to not be exactly the same, so what we tried to do is have whatever’s happening in that scene, his body motion or the body of the raven as it’s flying through the shot, help motivate some of this transformation,” says Cary Villegas, senior visual effects supervisor.
    .
    Villegas incorporated birdlike elements into the Diaval character when he transformed. “We tried to incorporate the feathers in some way in each of the forms that he took,” he says. “For the wolf, we took the feet of the raven and transferred them onto the wolf. But the feet of the raven are so delicate that it was quite a challenge to make those delicate structures fit into a creature as large as the wolf.”
    .
    The artists also had to bring all the fairy creatures that inhabited Maleficent’s fairy kingdom to life, from the pixies to the moorland fairy creatures. “We had to create every facet of those characters, like how their hair responds to gravity or to wind, and adjust every little nuance of what their skin looks like ,or the fur or the clothing that they may be wearing,” says Villegas.
    .
    In all, bringing the characters, architecture, and scenery from an animation to reality, albeit one augmented by CGI, was a daunting task. But a successful one at that, judging by the box-office numbers the movie is generating. It’s a perfect example of revamping a classic concept into one for a modern generation.

    Remarks from the Foreign Secretary and Special Envoy Angelina Jolie at the launch of the International Protocol.

    Remarks from Foreign Secretary William Hague
    ———————————————————————————
    Ladies and Gentleman, good afternoon and welcome to the launch of the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict, something I believe will be an extremely important document in the world.
    .
    This Protocol is the first of its kind, and we hope it will play a vital role in shattering the culture of impunity for sexual violence in conflict.
    This impunity is a major factor in why these crimes continue.
    .
    Up to 50,000 women were victims of sexual violence during the war in Bosnia, but only just over sixty people have been successfully prosecuted for it.
    From Central African Republic to Sudan to Syria, untold thousands of rapes have gone entirely unpunished.
    .
    We know that one of the primary reasons for the lack of prosecutions for sexual violence in conflict is the difficulty of gathering evidence that can stand up in court, and the trauma and the stigma faced by survivors in the process.
    This Protocol is designed to overcome those fundamental barriers.
    .
    And we are determined to ensure that prosecutors, police forces, peacekeepers and civil society on the front line in this struggle know how best to document and investigate sexual violence in conflict so that perpetrators can be successfully prosecuted.
    This Protocol sets out in detail how to interview survivors and witnesses, how to secure physical evidence, how to work with medics and lawyers so that survivors can be confident that the facts are on their side.
    .
    It shows how to protect survivors and to support them at every stage so that they don’t suffer more trauma or risk being attacked for courageously taking a stand.
    It has been written to help all those who might be involved in documenting and investigating sexual violence in conflict, from community activists to heads of police to international organisations who work in conflict-affected areas.
    .
    It contains the distilled wisdom of more than 200 renowned experts, investigators, survivors and organisations, representing years of accumulated experience and expertise.
    We want it to be a reference point, setting standards for governments, for international organisations and civil society across the world.
    .
    If all countries applied these standards then it will greatly strengthen prosecutions for rape in conflict and help to secure a dramatic increase in successful convictions.
    That is why as the United Kingdom our focus will be on the implementation of this Protocol. We will be translating it into multiple languages, we will be disseminating it worldwide through our huge diplomatic network, and in partnership with international institutions we will be supporting those organisations and activists putting it to use where it is needed most, in places affected by conflict and instability.
    .
    We will ask all the governments and organisations represented at this Summit to join this effort – to consider how they can use it in their countries, in their training for police or peacekeepers, in their work with civil society and in development programmes overseas, and we will do everything we can across the world to support them.
    .
    Of course, the strongest evidence in the world will not bring justice if prosecutors are not prepared to prosecute, or if police allow perpetrators to walk free. The courage of survivors and activists must now be matched by the determination of governments.
    .
    That is why this Summit aims to galvanise the international community into action, and it’s why the United Kingdom will do its utmost to ensure the momentum that we build here is harnessed and accelerated in the future.
    Ultimately, however, it is the patient and tireless efforts of people on the ground in conflict-affected states that will tip the balance against impunity. It is their investigations that will bring perpetrators to justice one by one and send the message that warzone sexual violence will not go unpunished. It is their work that will deter armed men from ordering or committing rape in future wars.
    So this Protocol is for them, it is for many of you in this room, and I hope it will be a crucial support to all of you across the world.
    .
    Remarks from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy Angelina Jolie
    ————————————————————————————————————————————————————
    I have met survivors of warzone rape around the world. And almost without exception they ask for one thing – justice: The right to be accepted, not shunned, by society.
    .
    The right to long-term economic and health support. And above all, the right to see their attackers held accountable in a court of law – because warzone rape is not a lesser crime, it is a crime against humanity.
    .
    Today, these rights are denied to millions of survivors around the world. The number of convictions for warzone sexual rape is pitifully small.
    .
    People who rape innocent women, men and children during conflict assume that they will simply get away with it, because they have. The few cases that are brought forward are often thrown out for lack of evidence, despite the testimonies from brave survivors.
    .
    This is an intolerable situation.
    That is why, at the heart of this campaign, we are calling for an end to impunity:
    Perpetrators have to know that even during conflict, evidence is being collected that will be used against them.
    .
    They have to know that when peace agreements are made, there will be no amnesty for rape and that if they commit these crimes, they will bear the stigma and punishment – no matter how long it takes.
    .
    We all know how hard it is to secure convictions for rape even in stable democratic countries. So we have to work even harder to make justice possible in fragile countries. And that is the purpose of this Protocol.
    .
    It is an essential document, and I am so grateful to the hundreds of experts and survivors who have played their part in drafting it. The Foreign Secretary and I are determined to work hard to ensure that it is implemented.
    .
    And we will be asking all the governments coming to the Summit tomorrow to adopt the Protocol and back it fully.
    .
    As a part of the next stage of our campaign, we will follow-up on how it’s implemented and what more still needs to be done.
    .
    I hope that by all of us working together, we can support survivors for the long but not impossible road to justice and finally, really, truly end impunity.
    .
    Thank you very much.
