Here's to you Spielberg

Stephen Spielberg announced yesterday that he would no longer be an artistic consultant for the 2008 Olympics in China. Why you ask, because China is still trading with Darfur despite countries and people asking them to discontinue being an economic, political, and military partner to the Sudanese government who are responsible for the violence and genocide in Darfur. Spielberg and many others feel if China would stop supporting the Sudanese government, then it would be a huge step in stopping the violence. Although as a UN member China did agree to support a UN Council Resolution in 2007, they then doubled their trade with the Sudanese government. Anyway, here's to you… Thank you Stephen Spielberg for taking the moral stand that the rest of us would if we could!
