As Ecorazzi previously reported, Ben Affleck has spent much time in the Congo, witnessing the war-torn country and helping bring attention to the struggles that local citizens face on a daily basis. Ben recently spent time visiting refugee camps in the eastern Congo where at least 250,000 people have been displaced by recent fighting and has even made a documentary about their struggles.

“I’m not an expert in international affairs or diplomacy, but it doesn’t take that to see the tremendous suffering here,” he told The Associated Press on Thursday in Goma, the regional capital. “It’s not something that we as human beings can, in good conscience, ignore.”

“I’m really glad that more people are paying more attention to (Congo) now but I’m really saddened that it’s taken this uptick in violence to make that happen,” Affleck said. “My hope in being here is primarily to bring attention to the fact that there’s a real lack of (aid agencies) here, a real lack of money going to these folks.”

Here at the Razz we’re stoked to see Affleck getting involved in a big way and helping to bring peace to a struggling nation. To view more pictures from his time in the Congo, visit popsugar.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
