hunger strike against the war in iraq

july 4th, in washington dc, in front of the white house, a hunger strike to end the war in iraq. at this point, the plan seems to be to fast from july 4th to august 14th outside the white house. from august 14th to september 2, the fast will move to camp casey in crawford, texas. the list of fasters keeps growing, as do the supporting organizations:
let's support any and all efforts to stop this insane war. and let's continue to imagine - individually and collectively - new strategies to stop this insane war.

I got the idea you might like to see this.

"The hunger strikes and suicides of Guantánamo bring Bobby Sands back to life.
This time around, he is not a vilified IRA "terrorist," but the venerated patron
saint of political prisoners everywhere." And now we have the "Troops Home

"What Would You Die For?" is here on

Some of the main ideas are:
Political prisoners are different.
Force-feeding is the moral equivalent of rape, and physically not only the
equivalent of torture, but torture itself.
Hunger strikers ought to be left alone, yes, even to die, if that's what they
aspire to.

Best of all possible regards,
Pat Hartman

So, David, I don't see your name on the list. Are you supporting this activity only in spirit then?
