Actress to protest against situation in Darfur


Mia Farrow will begin a three-week hunger strike on Monday.

The actress, 64, who is a goodwill ambassador for Unicef, will only drink water as part of the fast.

Mia‘s protest comes after the Sudanese government expelled foreign aid agencies from the war-torn Darfur region in March.

‘I undertake this fast in the heartfelt hope that world leaders who know what is just and right will call upon the government of Sudan to urgently readmit all of the expelled agencies or otherwise insure that the [aid distribution] gap is filled,’ she says.

Mia is prepared to go to extreme lengths to make herself heard.

‘I don’t know what will happen – I have no idea,’ she tells Access Hollywood.

‘I looked it up online just to see kind of what to expect, and the reason I’m gonna try to go for three weeks is because you do permanent, irreversible damage, possibly to your organs. But it is a punishment to the body for sure.’
