Ryan Phillippe on using his celeb status for political causes

Hollywood hearthrob Ryan Phillippe sits down with Piers Morgan this evening at 9 to talk about his newest role as the executive producer of the documentary film "Isolated."

Drawn to the project for its political nature, the actor, director and now activist spoke about how celeb status can be used as a positive influence.

"If you have any capacity to give extra attention to something that you feel like needs it," said Phillippe. "You're very grateful if you can, you know, get people to study or learn about something that you feel like needs to be exposed."

Watch the clip, and listen to interview, then tune in at 9 for the "Piers Morgan Interview," as Phillippe tells Morgan, "When people are oppressed or their lives are destroyed, I feel like that affects us all on some level."

    Piers asks "Why should we care?", a good question.
    1) Because America asked the United Nations to occupy this country, and asked the UN to let Indonesia occupy West Papua. That was the 'New York Agreement' written in 1962
    2) Because West Papua does not want any US money or aid, it just wants the Indonesians to leave, it wants the Indonesians to go back to Asia and stop killing and raping West Papuans
    3) Because the US has the WORLD's LARGEST GOLD MINE in this colony, and it was a director of that mining company who told Kennedy to appoint the director's fellow bonesman as the US national adviser who then told Kennedy to get Indonesia into this colony; coincidence ?

    Piers asks "Why should we do anything?"
    1) Because advancing Freedom around the world, and putting an end to corruption that manipulates Washington and other governments of the world will improve this world for all of us.

    Ryan Philippe wonders if there is a "solution to this situation" ? Yes there is, and it's free. For fifty years the UN has allowed Indonesia to kill and torture people in West Papua because the Secretary General has never told the UN Trusteeship Council about General Assembly resolution 1752 (XVII). The solution is for the US to fax a motion to be added to the agenda of the UN Trusteeship Council telling it about 1752 (XVII) and proposing it ask the International Court of Justice for its impartial advice about West Papua (West New Guinea) in relation with the United Nations and its legal duties.

    West Papua/ West New Guine/ Netherlands New Guinea case is probably "THE BIGGEST CONSPIRACY OF THE 20th CENTURY", and former US Secretary of State, Mr. HENRY KISSINGER is the biggest conspirator of the case who later took up the Directorship of FREEPORT MC MORAN, the majority shareholder of the largest gold mine in the whole world, operated in West Papua. I am sure he has broken the US law in the US by acting in conflict. Can somebody look at this case and put him to court?

      There's a chance Kissinger was the person telling Nixon to do the tour and help coverup the trusteeship issue in 1969, he'd be guilty of manipulating the US and other nations into violation of UN Charter 76 which is a domestic legal obligation in every UN member state. Personally I'd nominate McGeorge Bundy and his boys Robert Komer and Robert Johnson as the biggest conspirators in 1961 responsible for the death of Dag Hammarskold and the appointment of U Thant as UN Secretary General so he could with-hold the General Assembly resolution from the Trusteeship Council.
