Obert Madondo’s Canada Bill C-10 Hunger Strike: Day 14 Update

this photo 150x150 Obert Madondo’s Canada Bill C 10 Hunger Strike: Day 14 UpdateThis journal entry covers days 12, 13 and 14 (March 25, 26 and 27) my indefinite hunger strike against Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives’ draconian Safe Streets and Communities Act (Bill C-10). I started the peaceful protest at 12:01am on Wednesday, March 14. Two of my 5 demands: Repeal of the Act in its entirety, and immediate resignation of newly-appointed Conservative senator Vernon White.

After the weakness and mild chest pains I experienced over the weekend, I’m feeling much better. And my spirits are high.
