Angelina Jolie started an Instagram page to talk about the situation in Afghanistan

Right now, the people of the republic are losing the opportunity to communicate in social networks and express themselves freely, the actress noted.

Popular American actress and special envoy of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Angelina Jolie has registered on Instagram to tell about the stories of Afghans in the light of the current situation in Afghanistan.

“Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing the opportunity to communicate on social networks and express themselves freely. That’s why I came to Instagram to share their stories and the voices of people who are fighting for their basic human rights around the world,” she wrote under the first publication published on her page.

In it, she posted a letter from an Afghan teenage girl, which talks about changes in the life of society in connection with the coming to power of the radical Taliban movement. According to the girl, before women could openly defend their rights, work and study. Now there is a noticeable fear in society, although some believe that “the Taliban has changed.” “We believe that our rights are being violated,” she writes.

Jolie called on all those who are not indifferent to provide all possible support and assistance to the people of Afghanistan. 3.7 million people have already subscribed to Jolie’s account on the social network.
