Fasting for Gaza
Parliament Square peace protestor Maria Gallastegui fasted for 30 days to protest against the escalating military assault and in solidarity with the people of Gaza .
Her liquid-only hunger strike, which began on 12 January, ended after 30 days when friends and family became concerned about Maria’s health. She has had no lasting health effects.
How do you make yourself heard in the political climate we are in? “People just don’t take any notice,” Gallastegui said. “You want to remain peaceful, but you have to make people listen.”
