Subject: ON-GOING ILLEGITIMATE DESTRUCTION OF HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL 

Good Evening!

Madam Link, Members of the Board of Education, and CEO Gordon.

My name is Satinder P. S. Puri.

THE HUNGER STRIKE TO SAVE HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL, IN CLEVELAND, OHIO, ENDED AFTER THREE WEEKS.

WHILE I HAVE LOST 20 POUNDS, MY SPIRITS REMAIN HIGH. PLEASE BEAR WITH ME – I HAVE TO SPEAK SLOWLY – BECAUSE OF REDUCED ENERGY.

I WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL IN SAVING JOHN MARSHALL FROM DESTRUCTION.

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE HISTORIC BUILDING – AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM IS IN PROGRESS BY A THOUSAND CUTS – AND WILL ALSO RESULT IN THE DESTRUCTION OF THE AUDITORIUM, SWIMMING POOL, AND UNDERGROUND RUNNING TRACKS.

DESTROYING AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

I WAS UNABLE TO OVERCOME THE 100% CORRUPT POLITICAL SYSTEM IN CLEVELAND, OHIO – LED BY PHILISTINES AND DISHONEST POLITICIANS – MAYOR JACKSON AND COUNCILMAN SWEENEY, AND WHICH IS AIDED AND ABETTED BY THE MEDIA – THE PLAIN DEALER AND CHANNELS 3(NBC), 5(ABC), 8(FOX), AND 19(CBS) – WHO ARE IN BED WITH CITY HALL AND WHERE THE SEWER FLOWS FROM CITY HALL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE BELLAIRE PURITAS DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION – AND ENGULFS EVERY ONE OF MAYOR JACKSON’S AND COUNCILMAN SWEENEY’S CRONIES, GOONS, AIDES, AND ABETTERS -- WHO WALLOW IN THE MUCK!

MAY THE NAMES OF ALL THOSE WHO ARE FACILITATING THE SENSELESS DESTRUCTION OF HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL FOREVER LIVE IN INFAMY!

THE HUNGER STRIKE WAS A CRY FOR JUSTICE – WHICH TO THIS DAY HAS NOT BEEN SERVED. THE PLAIN DEALER AND THE BROADCAST MEDIA IN CLEVELAND (CHANNELS: 3(NBC), 5(ABC), 8(FOX), AND 19(CBS)) HAVE COMPLETELY IGNORED INVESTIGATION OF CITY HALL’S COLLUSIVE INACTION, VOTE RIGGING, AND DENIAL OF DUE PROCESS TO OVER 2,400 PETITIONERS WHO WANTED TO RENOVATE HISTORIC JOHN MARSHALL HIGH. 

I HAVE NO REGRETS. THE THREE-WEEK HUNGER STRIKE WAS A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE. JESUS CHRIST WAS ON A 40-DAY AND NIGHT FAST. MAHATMA GANDHI FASTED FREQUENTY TO FIGHT SOCIAL INJUSTICE AND COLONIAL OPPRESSION. I AM JUST A HUMBLE FOLLOWER. I FOUND THE EXPERIENCE VERY UPLIFTING. AS A RESULT, I AM CHARGED UP AS EVER TO CONTINUE WITH MY ENDLESS DEMONSTRATIONS WITH MY SIGN:
JOHN MARSHALL DESTROYED, INVESTIGATE CITY HALL –- WITH THE HOPE THAT -- JACKSON & SWEENEY AND THEIR MULTITUDE OF CRONIES – CAN ONE DAY BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE FOR DESTROYING AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM – A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

THE ON-GOING DESTRUCTION OF HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL IS AN ILLEGITIMATE ACT PERPETUATED BY A VISIONLESS & CORRUPT SCHOOL DISTRICT, A CORRUPT POLITICAL SYSTEM, AND FACILITATED BY AN EQUALLY CORRUPT MEDIA.

JOHN MARSHALL LIKE RHODES WHOSE AUDITORIUM WE ARE SITTING IN, AND JOHN HAY WERE GIFTS GIVEN TO THE CITY OF CLEVELAND BY GEORGE M. HOPKINSON – THE BRITISH BORN ARCHITECT.

WE SHOULD TREASURE OUR GIFTS!

THAT JOHN MARSHALL IS BEING DESTROYED – SHOWS HOW CORRUPTED THE SYSTEM HAS BECOME!

JOHN MARSHALL DESTROYED!

INVESTIGATE CITY HALL!

INVESTIGATE CITY HALL!
                    
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION.

No Conscience-CMSD and Mayor morally bankrupt

The board and adminstration at CMSD has no conscience--Bond Accountability members should speak out against this massive fraud and waste and they, too--have no conscience.
