Nicolas Cage, longtime supporter of Amnesty International, is featured in a new video by the activist organization which draws attention to the Gulf Coast Hurricane survivors who are still trying to rebuild their lives after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

In the video, Cage tours the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans and witnesses firsthand the devastation caused by the storms while speaking with local community leaders.

“People in the Gulf Coast have the right to return to affordable safe housing,” says the actor, who also attended Amnesty International’s Annual General Meeting in New Orleans in April.

Larry Cox who serves as executive director of Amnesty International USA is also featured in the video urging the U.S. government to put human rights at the forefront when responding to the BP oil disaster in order to avoid the same human rights violations that occurred following the hurricanes.

Cage concludes the video by pleading to the public, “Help Amnesty shine a light on humanity. We all have rights as humans. Protect those rights by supporting Amnesty International. Go online to see what you can do. Together we can make a difference.”
