  42. 42. As the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games approach, activists are taking the opportunity to urge China to use its unique influence to help end the violence in Darfur. As Sudan’s valued economic partner, arms supplier and ally, China can pressure Khartoum to end its military campaign, honor its commitments and accept international peacekeepers. In August 2007, Ruth Messinger and Mia Farrow helped to launch Dream for Darfur’s symbolic torch relay calling on China to use its influence constructively. Starting on the Chad-Darfur border, the torch traveled to Kigali, Rwanda before continuing to Armenia and other historic sites of genocide.
