|3/25 San Francisco, CA: 3rd Comunique from the Hunger Strike for Immigrant Rights
Released 26 March 2006  By Csar A. Cruz (teolol)
3rd Comunique from the Hunger Strike for Immigrant Rights
Saturday 11:00a.m. 95th hour of the hunger strike
March 24, 2006 Friday recap
It was a challenging day with non-stop rain and wind that rocked all
of our tents. Also a beautiful day because we heard about solidarity
marches in the following cities: Milwakee, WI (10,000 marched),
Phoenix, AZ (20,000 marched). Today there are marches planned in NY,
Illinois, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and four marches planned in
California (San Jose, Salinas, Sacramento and Los Angeles).
Our hunger strike continues and is gaining much momentum.
On a personal note, I have gotten very sick. It began with a mild
fever, cold, flu and developed from there. Paramedics came and took my
blood pressure and also brought me medicine. I was unable to leave my
tent and join the other hunger strikers as they were met by hundreds
of well wishers in an evening ceremony that include Aztec dance,
singers, speakers and many young people.
Telemundo, Pacifica, Univision and Estereo Sol came out to report
from the front lines.
Three of our hunger strikers Maria, Bruce and Wayne delivered over
8,000 postcards from San Jose to Diane Feinstein's office. NBC, ABC
and Univision were there to cover it.
Even though there was non-stop rain folks stayed out until 1:00a.m.
to keep our spirits up. Many more people have joined the fast and we
are taking over the federal building.
We call upon all folks to join us this weekend and camp out with us in
front of the Federal Building in SF.
Also, join the mass mobilization for our culminating march on Monday
as the Latino Veterans Against the War will join us.
March begins-Monday 11:00a.m.
From Federal Building to Diane Feinstein's Office.
