I just hope that, these movie stars won't glamorize hence depoliticize the movement !
Do we need glamorization of a political movement ? Does it help the movement in any way ?

I was reading about Jane Fonda the other day. One particular thing about her, I found really interesting.

"Fonda then planned to take a bus tour in March 2006 with her daughter and several families of military veterans but later scrapped her plans, mostly because she felt like she would distract attention from Cindy Sheehan's activism."

From wikipedia !

True, Satya---celebrity endorsement has its flip side, the movement may become the celebrity!
But then, all peoples---celebrity or not---are equally entitled to join, express solidarity and take part in movements and hopefully they themselves stick to the cause and not for galmour etc.
