celebs to join 24 hour hunger strike, like anyone cares. but they don’t understand that.

Celeb loony tunes and other lunacy.

Cause the whole world revolves around them.

This’ll sure bring Obama and American culture to it’s knees.

I have a hard time understanding just what it is that makes some folks so exhibitionally schtupid.  Do they really honestly think they’re having an impact on the decisions of the govt.? Or even on Aamer?  I guess they must.
And as is their habit, the Daily Mail is again patting itself on the back for its campaign to force the release of, “The last British prisoner” held at Guantanamo by the ugly American. The media has referred to him as a Brit after the DM started the ball rolling.

Yeah I know ... I recently did this. Only days ago in fact.
This is an update to that story.  Celebs I never heard of except for maybe one, have joined the Mail’s holy crusade to free the last Mohican.  Ah, I mean last British prisoner.  Who is now on another hunger strike. Or maybe the same one he’s always been on.
So here, take a look.  Look at it this way.  It can often times be a gas to look at the self styled elite making jerks of themselves.

I grabbed this from Sky News, but they got it from the Mail who had it sooner. Anyway, the Daily Fail loads too damn slow and it’s becoming more frustrating to use their site.

The hard copy headline read; Shaker Aamer supporters to hold 24 hour hunger strike.


Celebs Join ‘Hunger Strike’ For Shaker Aamer

Supporters of Shaker Aamer, the last British prisoner in Guantanamo Bay, join a campaign to keep up the pressure for his release.

Celebrities and politicians are set to take part in a “hunger strike” in solidarity with Guantanamo prisoner Shaker Aamer.

Actors Mark Rylance and Maxine Peake, as well as MPs David Davis and Andy Slaughter, and human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith have joined the Fast For Shaker campaign.

Mr Aamer, who was born in Saudi Arabia but has UK residency and whose wife and four children live in London, has been held in the prison for almost 14 years without trial.

Last month, US authorities announced he will be freed, but he could not be released immediately because Congress has to be given 30 days’ notice of his release.

Reports have emerged that the 46-year-old is on hunger strike protesting against alleged abuse at the military prison in Cuba.

Now supporters have launched Fast For Shaker to show solidarity with Mr Aamer by not eating for 24 hours.

Mr Aamer’s family, who are planning to join the campaign, said: “Thank you all so much for taking part in this fasting. We are touched.

“Our family we will be joining in the fasts with all of you. Let’s all bring Shaker home.”

Organisers said the initiative will start on Thursday and continue until Mr Aamer is released, with participants selecting a day to fast on.

Andy Worthington, co-director of the We Stand With Shaker campaign, said: “After the great news that Shaker Aamer is to be released from Guantanamo, we were all disturbed to discover that he is on a hunger strike, and wanted to show solidarity with him, and to encourage him to give up his hunger strike.

Below is somewhat better source than DM and has video if you’re so inclined.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
