Both Cynthia Johnson and I went to the Peace and Justice Commission meeting tonight to discuss our open-ended fasts in solidarity with the Guantanamo Hunger Strike. The Commission members were interested and supportive, and Vice-Chair George Lippmann offered to brainstorm some ways to get both media attention and the faith-based community involved. In 2011 The Commission embraced my request for a Resolution welcoming cleared Guantanamo detainees to settle in Berkeley, and Commission Rita Maran wrote the Resolution, which the Berkeley City Council passed in October, 2011. We’re so fortunate to have a Peace and Justice Commission in Berkeley!
