Day 21 – In the shadow of Mahatma Gandhi

3 06 2008

Today was a landmark day for the hunger strike: Day 21, the longest Mahatma Gandhi ever fasted.

Five new hunger strikers joined today — replacing all but hunger strike strongman Paul Konar, who continued to stand strong at the end of his third week without food.

“The doctor came this morning, and he said my pulse was fine, heart rate was fine,” Paul said. “It’s a little miracle. There are priests and nuns praying for me — I will continue as long as God allows.”
