Angelina sent a video message at an event honoring the victims of the Srebrenica genocide on July 11, 2017 in Guildhalls, London, UK. Read part of the speech below as well as the video and some photos has been added to the gallery.
“With them we are. We must never forget. Wherever that hatred does not dispute, violence is only a few steps,” she stressed. Anyone who has visited BiH know that Bosnians tolerant and humane people, warm and open heart, with a wonderful sense of humor. In addition, they are strong, extremely resistant people who have endured genocide and ethnic cleansing and other Defiance spirit, and everything else around them in ruins. Bosnians do not complain. They are humble people. They do not ask for special treatment or attention.
Every year, many victims await identification. Today, on the anniversary of the genocide, are still fresh graves in the cemetery in Potocari. When I think of Srebrenica imagine green hills and wide valley. My mind is turning towards Sarajevo, cafes and cobbled streets of the old town , with the cathedral, minarets and a synagogue. it’s still hard to believe that genocide could happen on European soil, a few hours away from European capitals, throughout our lives. the lesson is that violence in various forms quickly appear if the hatred, intolerance and aggression does not prevent it. And unfortunately, none of these things does not belong to the past. they are deeply rooted in human nature. they are in contradiction of all that pleased in democratic societie.”
Angelina attended the “Dreams Of Freedom” event yesterday on June 26th in London, England. She screened a video message to all the kids at the event. Below you can view photos from the video and also read parts of her speech.
She acts as UNHCR Special Envoy and harnesses her global fame in Hollywood to help child refugees in war torn countries of the world.
And actress and philanthropist Angelina Jolie, 42, has spoken up at a performance by more than 600 children as part of a project between world human rights organisation Amnesty International and Chickenshed Theatre.
Held at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday night, the event saw the beauty urge schoolchildren to fight for universal human rights for children all over the world.
Angelina shared her message via a video clip which was played out to the audience.
‘Children, I need you,’ she said. ‘We all need you. We adults, we are a little lost these days, we want you to think that we have it all under control, that it will all be fine. And it will be,’ she began.
‘The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; it’s like your secret book of laws. And if you can master it, no one can trick you, or your friends. And you can take those laws and rights and go head on with those adults who won’t listen.
‘With the power of not only what is right and fair, but what is law, you can fight back. And as you grow up, you will have the tools to protect yourselves and to defend others.
‘It means you can grow up to be citizens who together can complete the work that my generation will leave unfinished and fight for universal human rights for all children.’
