Hollywood actor George Clooney has called for an end to the global hate campaign against China - insisting plans to boycott the forthcoming Beijing Olympics are "excessive."
Actress Mia Farrow has publicly condemned China for its alleged support of genocide in Sudan’s Darfur region and director Steven Spielberg stepped down from his position as artistic director for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. But Clooney - a staunch Darfur campaigner - insists boycotting the Games isn’t the necessary action to bring peace to the stricken region.
He says, ""It seems excessive to boycott the Games because China does business in Darfur. It’s always more important to keep a line of communication open."
