  5. I’ll fast with liquids only until there is a resolution for Darfur.Please pass it on your friends for more visiblity

  6. James Greenbaum says:

    I am proud to join the fast for 3 days starting Monday, May 11, water only. This is a worldwide effort for humanity and survival. We must dedicate at least 3 days for the survival of those in Darfur. It is time to take a stand, worldwide.

    6
  7. Liz Palmer says:

    Thank you to Mia for starting this peaceful movement, for the suffering she has endured to raise the public awareness. Thank you to Richard Branson for picking up the cause and further publicising the plight of the Darfuri people.

    I’m committed to the fast, for as long as it takes. I am fasting 4 days/week refugee rations. Some might ask why 4, not 7? But we have real life commitments too, and this compromise allows me to stand up and be counted, another silent voice screaming ENOUGH.

    I rather like this quote by Edmund Blake, it says it all:
    “Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”

    So I’m doing a little, what I can within my capacity at present. I have huge admiration for those who are committing so much more, and I urge everyone to get involved, stand up and become part of the growing outrage at the injustice of the Sudanese rule.

  8. Karen Brodnicki says:

    Will do water only fast 5-11 to 5-14-09. Peace
