“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? (Isaiah)
NEWS FLASH: Bix is fasting yet again!!! Does this guy ever sleep??? Well, actually NO (literally)! Right after I sent out this morning’s email about the new Bix Action Figure I received an email from attorney Blake Kremer who got a letter from Bix.
Bix told Blake that he would be starting a new FAST today (February 1st) “in solidarity with a march and vigil on the 4th for Leonard Peltier and his release”. Here’s what Blake told me:
I had gone to see him [Bix] on the 28th at the FDC and after waiting in the visitation room was told that he would not be brought out to me due to his non-compliance. Bix wrote me later that same day and I received the letter yesterday.
Bix reports that he is “doing well.” He is warm, but that he continues to get no sleep. He also reports that he will begin another fast on February 1st, in solidarity with a march and vigil on the 4th for Leonard Peltier and his release. He expects to end the fast on the 4th.
Bix wrote that he is asking that a resolution be entered in the Tacoma City Council and Pierce County Council to support clemency for Peltier.
The upshot of all this: Bix is calling on us to support Leonard Peltier!!! February 4th is the INTERNATIONAL DAY IN SOLIDARITY WITH LEONARD PELTIER.

Leonard has suffered far too long as a result of a grievous injustice. This must end, and the government will not respond without a huge groundswell of public pressure. Spread the word. Justice must be served!!!
