Mia Farrow shares her hunger strike for Darfur via blog, YouTube

Actress Mia Farrow would like to draw attention to Darfur. She started her hunger strike 10 days ago and is regularly updating her blog and YouTube channel to keep all of us updated.

She urges everyone to call the White House at 202-456-1111 and remind President Barack Obama of his promise to help in ending the tragedy in Darfur..

“People want to go home. They want to go back to their villages to rebuild. They want peace and security. They haven’t had that for two long. We can all do something. We have a voice. if we don’t use it now then who are we?” Farrow said in a video post.

Magician David Blaine called on Farrow before she started with the hunger strike and gave tips on how to prepare and what to expect.

“He said after 6 days I wont feel hunger. He told me to drink 4 liters of water,” she said.

    Now call me old fashioned but this type of protest by Ms Farrow is exactly what I want to see on social media sites. If anyone can tell me a better reason to use social media sites than raising awareness of a cause, disease or other newsworthy and under reported topic then I have yet to see one. And Susan Boyle doesn’t count.

    the internation community should be more proactive in dealing with the situation in Darfur. we should not only send food aids but we also need to influence the political policies in the Darfur region.
