Angelina Jolie has returned to Iraq — this time on a day trip to bring attention to the more than 3 million people displaced within the country (and 1.5 million outside). The trip is the third to Iraq for the 34-year-old actress, who last year with husband Brad Pitt donated $1 million to four organizations working on behalf of children who have lost parents, homes and schools in the war-torn country.

She spoke to the locals, saying, “”I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation. We hope that UNHCR and the government will support you in getting a piece of land. You need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq.”

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
