* Hunger Strike in Parliament Square.

In the face of zero mainstream press coverage, Maria Gallestegui is
into the third week of her hunger strike at Parliament Square in
solidarity with the people of Gaza.

This week she staged a one-woman protest inside the gates of Downing St - which is
legal because she'd registered her intentions with the police prior to the event in accordance with SOCPA laws.

Standing outside the door of No.10 as cabinet members came and went, she demanded, in her own words "they they lift the blockade... (bring) an end to the arms sale to Israel... and (hold) a war crimes tribunal".

How on earth can she protest after 3 weeks without food? It makes me feel ill just thinking about it.
