On March 14, I started an indefinite hunger strike here in Ottawa to protest Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s new and deceptively christened “Safe Streets and Communities Act” (formerly omnibus crime Bill C-10). My five demands include the immediate repeal of the backward-looking and undemocratic Act, and the resignation of newly appointed Conservative senator and former Ottawa police chief, Vernon White. I’ll continue the hunger strike until all the demands are met.
Bill C-10 Hunger Strike’
This journal entry covers days 10 and 11 (March 23 and 24) my indefinite hunger strike against Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives’ draconian Safe Streets and Communities Act (Bill C-10). I think I’m approaching a crucial turning point since I started the peaceful protest at 12:01am on Wednesday, March 14. Health-wise.
On Friday evening, I started feeling weak. Late on Saturday, I started experiencing mild chest pains. However, my spirits are high.
