In her recent article, the 34-year-old actress urges President Barack Obama to start taking serious act in dealing with ethnic conflict in Darfur.
Angelina Jolie has taken a jab at President Barack Obama. In her article entitled "Justice Delayed Is Not Justice Denied" which was published in Newsweek on December 10, she criticized the 44th President of the United States for not being firmed enough in helping to resolve the ethnic problem in Darfur, Sudan.
Jolie further pointed out the fact that the Obama administration hasn't done any serious action to bring corrupt Sudanese leaders including President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, to justice. The impunity of those people, she believed, has left 300,000 people dead and 2.7 million others internally displaced in Darfur since 2003.
"I believe President Obama and his special envoy Scott Gration will do their best to bring peace to the region. Their policy, though, raises a number of questions," she additionally wrote. Although the 34-year-old actress came up with good hope for the president, she once again questioned, "How is the Obama administration's approach to Sudan an evolution of justice?"
"In addition, when the administration says it intends to work to 'improve the lives of the people of Darfur,' I would like to know what that means, besides the obvious point that their lives could hardly get worse," she moreover wondered. "In Sudan, the administration should explore ways to bring al-Bashir to justice, even as it encourages stability in Darfur."
Jolie, in the end, encouraged others to be aware of the fact that there are still many people suffering from injustice. "On this Human Rights Day - the same day President Obama receives his Nobel Peace Prize -- we must also remember those who have been deprived of their rights," she wrote. "Holding perpetrators of mass atrocities accountable is the best way to ensure justice today and peace in the future. Sudan is the place to start."
