Marion Cotillard in the Congo
Marion Cotillard took part in many actions of Greenpeace. In June 2010, she traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to report about the dangers which threaten tropical rainforests in Central Africa. This forest is « the world's second lung » said Marion. So she saw in her mission how the industrialists destroy the forests in particular by building roads. She met congoleses and heard their account about the deforestation, « a looting » said some of them. With her journey, she made a short documentary serie where she shows what she lived in Oshwe, the province where she lived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Her videos shows the industrial logging companys actions, legal and illegal, and the inhabitants incapacity to react.
I find Marion Cotillard admirable because she defends her convictions. She breaks her image of a carefree girl and dares take a stand like with Greenpeace. She takes advantage for her success to transmit messages, impart the world’s dark side, in particular with her videos. She excels in everything that she does, in her career and in her missions.
She is brave, she is an activist.
