DAY 4 (11-23-12) OF HUNGER STRIKE BY 70-YEAR OLD SIKH-AMERICAN TO SAVE HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL IN CLEVELAND, OHIO!

A HUNGER STRIKE IS A CRY FOR JUSTICE WHEN DUE PROCESS IS DENIED TO CITIZENS WHO HAVE NEITHER POWER NOR WEALTH!

HUNGER STRIKE TO SAVE JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL STARTED ON NOVEMBER 20, 2012 AT 12:01 A.M. AND WILL CONTINUE INDEFINITELY UNLESS THE DEMAND IS MET!

THE DEMAND IS THAT GOVERNOR KASICH OF OHIO ORDER THE CLEVELAND METROPOLITAN SCHOOL DISTRICT TO CEASE & DESIST FROM DEMOLISHING HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL BECAUSE OF GROSS IRREGULARITIES COMMITTED: COLLUSIVE INACTION, VOTE RIGGING, & DENIAL OF DUE PROCESS!

THREE CERTIFIED LETTERS (DATED OCTOBER 8, 2012; NOVEMBER 8, 2012 & NOVEMEBER 20, 2012) WERE SENT TO GOVERNOR KASICH!

SO FAR GOVERNOR KASICH HAS NOT RESPONDED TO ANY OF THE THREE CERTIFIED LETTERS!

PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS:
I HAVE LOST 8 POUNDS. AT THE START, I WEIGHED 138 POUNDS. I DRINK FLENTY OF WATER. I AM TAKING VITAMIN PILLS. I SLEPT A LOT ON THE SECOND DAY – BECAUSE I WAS VERY TIRED ON THE FIRST DAY. ON THE THIRD & 4TH DAY – I DID NOT SLEEP THAT MUCH. WHILE I FEEL WEAK – I AM ABLE TO DO CHORES AROUND THE HOUSE AND TAKE CARE OF OUR PETS. I WORK SLOWLY – SO AS NOT TO WASTE ENERGY. GOING ON A HUNGER STRIKE CAN BE BORING – SO I SPEND AS MUCH OF MY WAKING TIME POSTING ON FACEBOOK (SAVE JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL GROUP) AND MY BLOG AT REALNEO. I CONTINUE TO BE IN HIGH SPIRITS. I HAVE ALSO BEEN OUT ON THREE OF THE FOUR DAYS – I WALK SLOWLY AND SIT DOWN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. TODAY & YESTERDAY WHEN I WENT OUT – I LEFT MY TRAVELING CART & ALL THE SIGNS I USE IN MY DEMONSTRATIONS BEHIND – FOR THE FIRST TIME – IN NEARLY 18 MONTHS. IT FELT SO STRANGE -- THE CART HAS BEEN MY CONSTANT COMPANION – AND I MISSED IT. BUT NOW I HAVE TO CONSERVE ENERGY – AND I CANNOT AFFORD HAULING A HEAVY CART.

PRIOR TO START OF THE HUNGER STRIKE ON 11-20-12, I HAD FASTED  – 12 TO 18 HOURS EVERY DAY SINCE MAY 1, 2012. SO FAR – I HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED ANY HUNGER PANGS. TODAY I SAW A LADY RELISHING HER FOOD IN THE BUS – I DID NOT EXPERIENCE ANY TEMPTATION – OR ANY DESIRE TO EAT. WHEN I VISITED THE GREAT NORTHERN MALL IN NORTH OLMSTED TODAY TO ORDER A PAIR OF EYE GLASSES – AND I WAS TAKING A WALK – VERY SLOWLY IN THE MALL – I CAME AT A CROSSING POINTING TO THE FOOD COURT – I SUDDENLY MADE AN ABOUT-TURN.
