Dignity Fast, Paper Plates Against DADT Compromise

Dignity Fast, Paper Plates Against DADT Compromise


Lt. Dan Choi released a video to report on the physical effects of the Dignity Fast he and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo have undertaken in response to the compromise on "don't ask, don't tell" repeal. Activists have begun to send paper plates to President Barack Obama in support of the fast.

In the video recorded Sunday, Choi says, "I wake up and I'm noticeably more tired and light-headed. The caretakers are making sure that I drink water but I don't feel hungry very much at all. I do feel sometimes it's difficult to keep walking and holding myself up, so I'm noticeably more depleted of energy. The back of my eyes sometimes hurt when I close them."

In support of Choi and Pietrangelo's efforts, activists have started to send paper plates to the White House to urge President Obama to end the "don't ask, don't tell" policy without conditions. Autumn Sandeen at Pam's House Blend reports more.
