Another blogger about my hunger strike….

1 Nov

 

“That will come in time. Right now we’re just building consensus.”

This gentleman, Recai Iskender, is on a Seven Day Hunger Strike. He had the same disturbing answer as the rest of Occupy Wall Street when I asked his demands: “I got no demands,” he said. When I said I was worried he might starve, he said “Maybe I need to explain fasting. Fasting is good for you. It’s cleansing. So if you ask my message, it’s that before we criticize these guys, the one percent, we gotta cleanse ourselves. Otherwise we can’t understand the poor.”
