Farrow Fast a Part of Genocide Prevention Month?

April 23, 2009

According to a recent Associated Press article (“Mia Farrow declares hunger strike in solidarity with people of Darfur”), which is highlighted, and linked to, on the Genocide Prevention Month web site, Mia Farrow’s upcoming hunger strike “is part of Genocide Prevention Month, a campaign to stop genocide worldwide.”

However, according to well-placed sources within the anti-genocide advocacy community, Ms. Farrow’s protest is actually NOT a part of “Genocide Prevention Month”. It’s worth noting that Reuters, Telegraph and Guardian articles all DO NOT mention the Genocide Prevention Month angle. So which is it? And, if the personal protest is not a part of “GPM”, where did the confusion arise? We’ll let you know what we find out.
