There are many who are partaking in fasting for those in Gitmo

Elliot Adams and Takak Kauff have been fasting in support of those being force fed in Gitmo; which, in most people’s minds is a form of torture.

Most of us know that the signature of Obama could send some 83 people home, some whom have been here for upwards of 11-12 years without being charged, seeing a lawyer and no place to turn. That some would rather die than live under these conditions speaks volumes. For those who have been charged with criminal activity, get them out of Gitmo and into a prison here in teh US where they can be tried under the Justice system we so revere.

Many others are fasting as well, some are doing this on a constant basis, taking in electrolytes and water, others are fasting “part time”, regardless, they are showing support. I decided last night I will do a “semi-fast” as I have to keep to a relatively liquid diet due to surgery, but I can cut back, showing others that we can win this battle. I’m not asking much, just cut back, write your congresscritters about how despicable those in Gitmo are being treated.

Let’s put some pressure on to get those 83 back to their homelands. We can do this, it takes work and dedication, but the payoff is tremendous.
