Dolores Huerta declared that she will indeed PICK UP the fast for Jessica and has heard from legislators and other celebrities that they may very well pick up the fast for the remaining fasters.
UPDATE DAY 25 (written at 1AM)
A large group of assembly people and senators have committed to signing onto a resolution drafted by jackie goldberg and other legislators (approved by fast4education) which openly supports the fasters' demands and urges the governor to meet with the fasters.
Dolores Huerta spent her second straight day with us, schooling us on organizing/lobbying, helping us draft an action plan, outreach list and helped phonebank.
The fasters, though quite literally "kicked to the curb" by a
concerned group of sacramento's highest ranking police and CHP officers, spent the day surrounded by supporters and media. The CHP presence was obvious but the fasters retained their dignified and peaceful stance with the confidence of the support from their physician. After almost being forcibly removed from the Capitol property, Jessica sat in her chair on the sidewalk accompanied by friends and new-found family. A group of spiritual educators blessed them with prayers and the day went by without more word from CHP after their doctor arrived and declared their health stable.
WE await the SPEAK-OUT and pray for a large turn-out.
Spokespeople for the fast4education spoke before thousands of first nations people at the Native American Health Care rally at the capitol.
Almost every person in attendance at the vigil declared their 24 Hour FAST IN SOLIDARITY and we continue to receive emails from around the state declaring their participation in the HUNGRY 4 EDUCATION fundraiser for the fasters. from the vigil alone, we raised over a hundred dollars.
Dolores declared that she will indeed PICK UP the
fast for Jessica and has heard from legislators and other celebrities that they may very well pick up the fast for the remaining fasters.
Though Jessica has agreed to break her fast tomorrow (after twenty five days of fasting), the other two fasters have not made such definite promises...
THE SPEAK OUT! 4 public education WILL BEGIN TOMORROW (june 3-day 25)
