This journal entry covers days 15, 16 and 17 (March 28, 29 and 30) 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.
My legs are weaker (at times) and my injured back bothers me still. In the mornings, I’m usually alert and full of energy. The energy wanes as the day progresses. My body also now dictates two sleep schedules: midnight to about 6.30am and 2 to 3 hours in the afternoon. Otherwise, I’m doing great. My spirits are high.
