[Los Angeles] Day 3 of the DREAM Fast Vigil kicked off with the theme "Higher Education Day." The highlight of the day came through paintings that fasters drew that tied higher education to the DREAM Act. Fasters also drew pictures depicting their thoughts and feelings. These will be hung as part of the existing visuals at the fasting site throughout the 2 weeks. The fasters are also engaged in daily journals and writing daily letters to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and to President Bush.

[Los Angeles] Day 3 of the DREAM Fast Vigil kicked off with the theme "Higher Education Day." The highlight of the day came through paintings that fasters drew that tied higher education to the DREAM Act. Fasters also drew pictures depicting their thoughts and feelings. These will be hung as part of the existing visuals at the fasting site throughout the 2 weeks. The fasters are also engaged in daily journals and writing daily letters to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and to President Bush.

The fasters were also joined by two new 24-hour solidarity fasters. Noraney Compo from the Immigrant Rights Coalition at UCLA joined as a student in support of the student legalization legislations. Noraney commented on Day 3 saying, "I'm feeling pretty good. Today a parent stopped by our information booth and found out about the DREAM Act. She wanted to get involved and said she will come back to support us. It is important that we get support and interest from everyone."

The interest from the campus grows daily as students, parents, and teachers are stopping by the information booth to take information and wishing the fasters luck. There were also those students that had noticed the campaign on previous days and stopped by the information desk for the first time to ask about progress.

Han Jin Kim, a 22-year student at UCLA and a 1-week faster said, "I'm feeling pretty full to see all the people here in Los Angeles and across the country working for this cause. I'm feeling optimistic to see students and just people stopping by our information booth asking questions and wishing us luck. I don't have time to think about my hunger because I am hopeful."

Hopeful is also what Mrs. Chang (wants to withhold whole name) also felt today. Mrs. Chang is a mother of an undocumented student. She had heard about the fasting campaign through the Korean media and wanted to participate. "Anything that I can do as a mother I will do for my daughter. I feel like I am making a difference. Because of work I cannot come out everyday. But I am going to come out again, with my daughter, on Sunday."

The fast action has been gaining media attention. Today covered the Korean Daily, Hankyoreh Daily, and Radio Seoul came out to support the fasters as well as interview students and Ms. Chang. As fasters gear up for Day 4 of the DREAM Fast Vigil, they are all hoping for escalated support and action around the student legalization legislations.

What to expect on Day 4

September 16, 2004 (Thursday) - General Supporter Day

Various community groups and community members will drop by the fasting site to offer support and solidarity to the fasters. Community groups and members will bond with fasters on immigration history, experience, and critical issues that impact their respective communities.
