Hungerstrike for the Cuban five
Mon, 25 Jul 2005 10:08:46

How many times haven't i seen or typed the sentence above in this exact or similar form in this or similar languages. This is because i am in the middle of a hungerstrike. Not mine, i am eating just fine. No but i help a bit on the side. Grllfrnds uncle is the masterbrain of this operation and hungerstriker at that. He does not hungerstrike alone; he hungerstrikes with a couple of other people. They mostly sit/ly/stand before or in a tent just on the other side of the fence that seperates a park from the parental home of uncle.

They are doing quite fine, be it for some hungerfeelings and moderately small inconveniences in concentration and bodystrength. Mind you they were better prepared than the year before, where uncle, with other people than now, hungerstriked for thirty days. In that instance the initial plan was to drink just water for the whole of the thirty days until some south american refugee friends with experience in the field told them this would seriously damage their bodies. This time around the strike is more controlled you could say. Ten days of hungerstriking and access to as many Cuban honey you wish to stir into you water (courtesy of the Cuban embassy).

It's a good thing i am unemployed. Now i can help out a bit. Although i could have done way more than i did in the last couple of weeks. Anyway, i am responsible for the website and so i've built one. It's not totally bugfree but it's nice all the same i'd say. This multi-language thing was a nice idea in theory and it still is in practice but in practice you get all these realworld problems as synchronising text between six different languages. To program it is not the hard part. The people, they are the problem. Damn autonomous agents, free will, mind of their own. Oh if only i could control them as i can the flow of the site. Enter puppy into organisational frustration land. But the outcome is not that bad. The digital group did rather well considering the resources available to us.

The action is almost over now. Today a woman from the Cuban embassy will hold a seminar about the electionprocess in Cuba and on the 26th the hungerstrikers will start eating again at eight o'clock in the morning. The weather has been very bad all week. The worst since i've come to Sweden. But in an action like this the weather is of course not the most important factor for success. No, it's the the amount of awareness you raise for the cause you support. And for that i would again gladly redirect your attention to free trips to sweden.

He ties, Zo te lezen ben je druk in de weer met het bedrijven van politieke zaken. Het is goed dat e.e.a. je aandacht heeft. Ik zal de staking helaas niet meer meemaken aangezien ik op 7 augustus zal arriveren. Ik bel je vanavond of morgen nog even op om de details aan je door te geven.

Zie je snel, groetjes Ronald

oh ja ronnie.... waarschijnlijk wordt je zowel opgehaald als gebracht van t vliegveld, maar vooral dat ophalen is niet zeker gezien de onzekerheidsfactoren die gepaard gaan met hanna's vriendin die daar de verantwoording net wel/niet voor wil nemen. Maar voor het gemak gaan we uit van wel.

nee hanna haar nederlands is nog niet ZO goed. Dat was ikke hierboven en mijn zinconstructies laten ook nog best wat te wensen over zoals je kan zien.
