As of about half an hour ago, the 24-hour hunger strike began.
I would like to thank the following people for joining the strike:
Trevor Piper (President of the Victoria branch of Free China)
Stephen W. Hancock
Anyone I missed (with my apologies)
According to a good number of people, 9AM Beijing time is actually 8PM EST. Mea culpa. Having started an hour late, we'll be sticking it out for an extra hour.
