Mia Farrow Plans Hunger Strike Next Week For Darfur People

Mia Farrow is taking things to the next level — and perhaps a little too far — with a planned hunger strike next week as an “act of solidarity with the people of Darfur.” I only question the move because she’s 64-years-old — and a hunger strike can put your body through some serious hell. I like Mia — and would prefer she continue the good fight in someway that doesn’t jeopardize her health, but she’s obviously made up her mind. From the article,

The 64-year-old actress and humanitarian says she will begin a “fast of only water” on Monday “as a personal expression of outrage at a world that is somehow able to stand by and watch innocent men, women and children needlessly die of starvation, thirst and disease.”

Farrow was moved to begin the hunger strike after the Sudanese government expelled international aid agencies from the country last month. Farrow says she is calling on world leaders to “help build a credible peace process” to end the violence in Darfur. Her protest is part of Genocide Prevention Month, a campaign to stop genocide worldwide.

We wish Mia luck in bringing attention to the crisis in Darfur. We’d also like to point her towards this article: How To Go On A Hunger Strike Safely.
