Hunger Strike Continues 7/24 on Capitol Hill Day #19

Hunger Strike Continues 7/24 on Capitol Hill Day #19 Demanding $200B Budget Shift from Pentagon to Plan B 3.0 Awaits Notification from Dennis Kucinich

NW corner of Cannon House Office Building, Washington, DC, January 1, 2009. In order to understand this action, "Imagine that you've seen a meteor just days from striking earth and congress is doing nothing but talk. What do you do," asks Start Loving, when asked to explain this campaign.

"Plan B 3.0, by Earth Policy Institute's Lester Brown, authoritatively, unmistakably shows us the national and global security 'meteor.' -- the soon to be irreversible destruction of life support on planet earth -- 'civilization collapse,' as manifest in the sharp rise in failing states around the world," Loving continues. "Driven by global warming, population explosion, and millions moving toward western style consumption, and with tipping point just months away, the Marshall Plan funding Brown calls for occurs now, January 2009, or it is too late for U.S. National security."

Loving adds, "Despite this impending catastrophe, Barney Frank (Democrat MA) is the lone voice in Congress calling for action, in October demanding a 25% shift in budget from the Pentagon. I will not remain silent in the face of this obvious threat. I expect to remain on Capitol Hill, NW corner of the Cannon House Office building 24/7 consuming only water, vitamins, and electrolytes until Dennis Kucinich, the congressman I most trust, comes out to tell me that the funding shift is a certainty."

Most of his adult life a turn-around expert in the computer industry, Loving came to DC over 3 years ago to fight the genocide in Darfur (Wash. Post, A Hunger For Justice - washingtonpost.com), conducting a 46 day hunger strike, 7/24 occupation outside the Sudan Embassy. He moved to direct confrontation of U.S. self destructive acts of Empire last October with a 7/24 occupation on Capitol Hill against the bombing of Iran (<http://startlovingusforcesiraniraq.blogspot.com/>http://StartLovingUSForcesIranIraq.blogspot.com) .

Most recently Loving has been supporting the 27+ year Peace Vigil in Lafayette Park (<http://prop1.org/>http://prop1.org) in for the furtherance of Proposition One (HRxxxx) as proposed by Eleanor Holmes Norton each year since 1993. First passed in DC in DC election 1991 (prop1.org for details).

THIS is what Democracy, Christianity, Hinduism... looks like:

A frequent script in my life, I share:
  • Imagine that there is a God.
  • Imagine there is a Heaven.
  • You are at the gates; what will God ask you, what is an entrance exam question?
  • Which will be God's question? "Once Obama was elected:
    A. What did OBAMA do to make peace and eliminate suffering among the world's poor?"
    B. What did YOU do to make peace and eliminate suffering among the world's poor?"
"B," as Gandhi said, " "B" the change you wish to see." :-) :-( We are totally not responsible for what Obama does. WE are responsible for what WE do.

THESE FOLKS, RISKING ARREST AT DOJ YESTERDAY, SHOW US THE ANSWER --- "B":

Update

I continue to cover Thomas' absence at the White House Peace Vigil one-two shifts per day; and to aggressively publish videos to the Chanel youtube.com/StartLoving1 which currently has 17o subscribers:
  • in support of DemocracyNow!,
  • in support the few sheroic activists in DC; and until recently
  • an aggressive attempt to achieve the election of Barack Obama, the county's greatest candidate since Lincoln.

On the Hill. In Lafayette Park.

Congress is on the Hill just two more weeks this year I think. These posters along with audio clips of the pre-Impeachment hearings will be on the Hill for them to wade through to and from their various troughs.






When not on the Hill I'm in the Park at the White House manning the 27 year Peace Vigil.

Buckets of urine, slingshots, anti-bus weapons seized in raid on anti-RNC protesters

TWINCITIES.COM, By Mara H. Gottfried, Elizabeth Mohr and Dave Orrick Article Last Updated: 08/30/2008 02:35:54 PM CDT

Ramsey County sheriff's deputies found weapons, [three buckets of urine], and devices to disable buses - among other items - in searches in the Twin Cities last night and today.

Authorities said the items came from "key members of the RNC Welcoming Committee," a self-described anarchist group.

UPDATE!!!

Police arrest RNC protest leaders
Washington Times, DC

Bruce Nestor, chapter president of the Minnesota National Lawyers Guild, said he was present where the urine buckets were taken and that none were identified in a search warrant inventory as urine.

He said two of the buckets were used to flush toilets and conserve water, while another was taken from an apartment that did not have a bathroom but was unconnected to the Welcoming Committee. He accused Sheriff Fletcher of staging a "political stunt."

Protest group wins reprieve to set up big TV at convention Minneapolis Star Tribune

Protest group True Blue Minnesota will get to set up its 20-by-30-foot television screen at Triangle Park near the Xcel Energy Center during the Republican National Convention -- at least through Tuesday, Ramsey County District Judge Kathleen Gearin said Friday.

True Blue had received a permit from the city of St. Paul but the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board refused to issue a variance, citing safety concerns. Lt. Gov. Carol Molnau, a Republican, heads the board and cast the deciding vote. FULL ARTICLE

Conversation with E

Hello Start Loving! :)
How are you? I've thought about and prayed for your provision and safety often since I met you.
Do you remember me? ( in the photo attached of the group at the protest against torture policies, I'm the shorter gal! :) )
* I hope you're doing well. I suppose you are since you're doing exactly what your mind, soul, and heart are guiding you to do.
I , on the other hand, am trying to figure things out still. Maybe not trying hard enough, but I'm doing alot of asking.
There's plenty of words I could ramble in this email, but I'll keep it short this time and most importantly I wanted you to know I haven't forgot your eyes.
And your advice about this time of my life being very difficult ( mid 20's...finding a core identity and purpose in this life) and about serving with the Catholic Social Workers.
Anyhow, I hope you remember me too.
Talk to someday again hopefully.
Peace & Struggles,

E

Dear sister,

I am so extremely glad to hear from you, and that you have not forgotten me!

NO I haven't forgotten you! It was glorious time we spent together, and no, I haven't forgiven you for leaving so soon.

Salvation, by whatever name, and this is what you speak of above, is simply and only becoming possessed by the needs of the least-of-these your global family. This is the path. There is no other. This is Life / Love / Peace / JOY. There is no other. Ever.

My daily salvation is The Lord's Prayer PRAYED THIS WAY and more broadly MY ESSENTIAL LIFE SAVING KIT. If you are ever dying for Life - go to these links.

Oh, my prayers are with you sister.

Your brother,

Start Loving - Wage Love or die.
