Spielberg pulls out of role in Beijing Olympics

13 Feb 08 - Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg has withdrawn as an artistic adviser to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, accusing China of not doing enough to end the "continuing human suffering" in Darfur. Dr James Smith, Chief Executive of the Aegis Trust, said: "This is the biggest message to the Chinese that turning a blind eye to the atrocities in Darfur is unacceptable. Spielberg has demonstrated that collective responsibility means 'everyone's responsibility' not 'other people's responsibility'."
