Hunger Strikes. A Librarian at the Kitchen Table. No. 376.

Over 38,000 Civilans Killed in Iraq
2537 U.S. Troops Killed in Iraq

On July 4, we will launch an historic hunger strike called TROOPS HOME FAST in Washington, D.C. in front of the White House. While many Americans will be expressing their patriotism via barbeques and fireworks, we'll be fasting in memory of the dead and wounded, and calling for the troops to come home from Iraq. We're inviting people around the world to show their support for this open-ended fast by fasting for at least one day. Please sign up to join us in DC or to support us in your hometown and encourage your friends to do the same!



Believing that the British Government
Has no right in Ireland, never had any
Right in Ireland, and never can have
Any right in Ireland the presence
In any one generation of Irishmen of
Even a respectable minority ready to
Die to affirm that truth makes that
Government forever a usurpation
And a crime against human progress
-- James Connolly
