Gael Garcia Bernal fans know that he’s never been one to shy away from political causes. He famously starred in the anti-Pinochet film No and now, he has spoken out on the behalf of Syrian refugees.

Bernal is currently in Jordan filming Jon Stewart’s Rosewater movie. And while touring regions of the country, he discovered some appalling living conditions for the displaced Syrians.
