Mia Farrow: Hunger Strike for Darfur
28 April 2009

In a bid to draw public attention to the things happening in Darfur, actress Mia Farrow has decided to go on hunger strike.



Says her publicist:
“Mia is trying to draw attention to the dire situation in Darfur.It’s a last resort for her because she has no idea what else she can do. She will go on for as long as she can and hopes others can join in her strike once she can no longer carry on.”

You can follow Mia’s journey on her blog. Here’s her entry for Day One:

Today is the first day of my hunger strike. I have never undertaken anything remotely like this and so I have little sense of what to expect and although I have set a goal of three weeks, I really don’t know how long I will be able to continue. I will be drinking lots of water.

Despite the fact that for six years the world has taken no effective action to protect Darfur’s people it seemed that the expulsion of the aid agencies, the severance of the lifeline to more than 4 million people would surely trigger a response. But while the US Envoy Scott Gration said, “We need to come up with creative ways immediately, and when I say immediately I mean in the next weeks, to be able to compensate (for the expelled aid agencies)”, the weeks are passing and word from the camps is that people are already suffering; the water pumps at well sites are breaking down because there is no one to repair them, latrines are overflowing, food stockpiles are dwindling and there is no medical assistance. How can this be??!!

Hussein Abu Sharati, spokesman for a network of refugee-camps leaders sent a letter to President Obama. “Mr. President,” Abu Sharati wrote, “We need quick and immediate intervention to save us from the imminent death:… (the expulsion of humanitarian organizations ) is the regime’s final goal and the deadly blow to accelerate our death by slow motion through starvation and diseases.”

Non-action is an act of acquiescence.

Good luck Mia, we are with you in your quest.
