for a banquet-like Fast... that is, both festive & elegant...


...just check out these photos on CodePink's website ...about their fast to protest the war. Their demands are simple-- not easy for this administration, I'll grant, nor for this Congress, either, apparently-- but still they are simple:

The fasters are demanding that we bring our troops home from Iraq. They want the White House and Congress to call for:

    • The withdrawal of all U.S. from Iraq;
    • No permanent bases in Iraq;
    • A commitment to fund a massive reconstruction effort but with funds going to Iraqi, not U.S., contractors.
And be sure to read Lyssa Strada contributor Stephanie's account of her fast. The link is in the post just below this one.

And, if any Lyssa Strada readers are also inspired to follow suit, please tell us about it in comments or via email, and we'll post your story, too.

I only wish there were captions to go along with the pictures. I would really like to know what is going on in some of them, especially the 2 of the 71 year old grandma being arrested.
