    My dear cousin. Please declare victory and give up this madness of a hunger strike. At age 67, you’re killing yourself. You may be getting strong support from the Berkeley intelligentsia, but no one else in America knows your name or what you’re doing. You know that. You’re an incredibly smart person.

    You’ve been an activist for 50 years, and now it’s time to let the next generation take over. It will be their world. You’ve done your part. It saddens me to see you hurt your health for a political fight that you alone are fighting.

    I implore you to please end your hunger strike. Your family loves you.

my gitmo fast

I'm now on day 60 of my hunger strike in solidarity with the hunger strikes at Guantanamo Bay Prison and Pelican Bay Prison in California. We must stop torture, forced feeding, indefinite detention, excessive solitary confinement, free the 86 cleared-for-release Gitmo prisoners, charge and try the remainder, and close Guantanamo and ALL black sites where U.S. torture policy is practised. Help me end my fast; call the White House every day: 202-456-1111. Tell Obama I'm on a hunger strike and need him to release the Gitmo prisoners cleared for release.
