Stand With Darfur DC Vigil Day #109

Sudan agrees to UN and African peacekeepers in Darfur Scotsman, United Kingdom - 1 hour ago THE president of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, has agreed to a joint United Nations and African Union peacekeeping force for Darfur, diplomats confirmed last night. Mr Bashir backed the move after a meeting with Security Council envoys in Khartoum, ...

Almost certainly Darfur has taken a step TOWARD Rescue and Restore. Dear Father, make it so, please. But even if we keep the pressure on, we will not know for 9 months or so for sure in all likelihood.

Saturday night I came to the Washington Peace Center and remain there through THURSDAY morning. There is much writing I need to do at my Personal Philosophy site, and I want to watch the analysis closely of last week's apparant progress in order to better target my efforts this week.

Given the apparently substantial acceptance by Sudan for 20,000 peacekeepers, the work now is to mandate the international community to actually get the peace keepers on the ground, and to simultaneously get the Peace Agreement updated with integrity for all stakeholders.

I may begin to move from day to day between key Embassies and Congress. A likely rotation should consider: Sudan, China, India, England, France, Germany, Pakistan, Congress, White House... each for its own reason; each is in a strategic position.

More soon.

Stand with Darfur Sudan Embassy Vigil Day #102

Today was spent not at the Darfur Vigil a the Embassy but at US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation; a demonstration at the Capitol and march to the Washington Monument.

102 days into this Darfur Vigil / Campaign a Q & A can be helpful:

Q. How is your health, are you still fasting; do you expect to survive?
A. My health is excellent. My weight continues to decline as I march 9-12 hours per day and take only about 800 calories per day, while normal intake for this level of activity might be closer to 3,000. I expect to survive. Although I experience no short or long term damage thus far, as my weight decreases to skeleton level some damage is likely.

Q. What is your routine, plan and why?
A. Basically I march with Darfur posters 9-12 hours per day depending on levels of pain and fatigue; some days are easy, some days are not. I take 2 breaks of roughly an hour each. I sleep sitting up (lying down would be arrestable) for the remainder. This is what I do 6/24. Saturday nights I accept hospitality at the Washington Peace House to shower, blog and bathe. I march for the same reason I do everything - as my best shot to stop the genocide by raising others to levels of "paying the price" to stop the genocide. Collateral benefits of the marching include: as opposed to traditional "Hunger Strikes" the marching is an added expression of commitment; and it drives my weight down faster so that soon I will be a visual reminder of the Holocaust Darfur is experiencing.

Q. How do you feel?
A. "A person is not equipped to Live until s/he knows what s/he would die for," said Dr. King. The corollary is that when you have something that is worth dying for you can fully Live. I feel fully aLive, full of Peace / Joy / Life / Love, and much pain. Some days are a breeze. Some days my legs are racked with pain even hours after I stop marching. But I am in such solidarity, from my soul, serving my Darfur family, that there are no more than a few seconds in any day that are not wonderful. I would not trade my quality of life these days for any time in my privileged 55 years. And I recommend that this level alone is where Life / the Divine / Love / Peace are to be found for the individual participant, and for their dear ones over the longer term. See Jesus, Good, God-Father, Alfred Adler, n Start Loving for more on this.

Q. What are you hoping to accomplish?
A. I am trying to stick / attach / insert the tortured, starving Darfuries on my large posters to the Hearts of the thousands of Federal, International, and normal drivers that pass me to and from work every day; EVERY DAY! Darfur has hit the "Head" of 70% of the U.S. populace, and the "Heart" of less than 10. Until it hits our Hearts, we will not "pay the price" of ending Genocide. Love and suffering is what you do for "family" in need. Right? Well it so happens that according to Dr. King (and your own reflection I'll wager), "Unearned suffering is redemptive."

Q. Are you being successful?
A. I am asked this question often. It is the wrong question in the sense that at such times that each of us is "humane," in our "right mind" it is not a question we would ask in the face of such attrocities. It is not the question of "brotherhood." The question of a Brother or Sister is, "What is my best shot in the face of such dire need?" The Sudan Embassy 24/6 Vigil / Fast / March is my best shot. I AM impacting thousands of influential people day, after day... 102 days so far. I am committed. I am "family." I am "paying the price." These things are all potentially infectious. [Apathy, neglect, indifference and lip service are also infectious.] There is no other hope besides what Gandhi prescribed, "Be the change you wish to see." The change I wish to see is millions "paying the price" to Rescue and Restore Darfur.

Q. Do you expect to continue and if so for how long?
A. I cannot imagine ending the Vigil until the Rescue of Darfur is unmistakably underway and their Restoration is absolutely assured. This could be by summer's end. It could be never.

Q. Are you still alone in this Sudan Embassy campaign and what are your needs?
A. I would have expired by now were it not for Ellen Thomas who simply saw the need and jumped in bringing whatever liquids and calories are needed every day. I have no needs. Our Darfur family needs hundreds or thousands of us "paying the price" for their rescue and restoration. Currently there are maybe 10 nation wide paying the price that needs to be paid.

Q. Is there progress for Darfur?
A. There may be progress for Darfur. France's energetic new regime. China's worry of having the PR value of the Olympics diminished. Some resolve on the part of the G8. Or it may be the 10,000th installment of "lip service," just like we-the-people of the world are giving our governmental employees (President, Congress...) lip service; and just like al-Bashier gives us all back - lip service.

Q. In your view what will it take to Rescue and Restore Darfur?
A. The only thing that has ever caused one group of people to be Rescued and Restored is other people "paying the price." The world has never stopped a genocide. We have never payed the price. If we-the-people do not pay the price, our elected officials, no dummies, will see that they have neither reward nor problems ahead, and Lip Service is all we'll get from them; and 2.5 million Darfuries will continue to die excruciating deaths. Yes China needs to be shamed leveraging the Olympics, multilateral sanctions are required on all parties in Sudan to force a lasting peace agreement, Russia needs bringing in line... BUT ALL THESE REQUIRE THAT THE PRICE BE PAID BY WE-THE-PEOPLE.

Day #98 Darfur Vigil Sudan Embassy D.C.

Today I return to the Sudan Embassy, DC Darfur Vigil after my week of filling in for Ellen, my daily support, so she could visit her mom and daughter and grand daughter down south. I want to do what I can to keep the pressure / attention on among my northwest DC community. I expect to be at the Embassy 24/6 for many, many, many months. I pray that the new French Gov, focus at the G8, and selfish China (Olympics) combine at long last for some substantial progress - a peace agreement and 20,000+ police on the ground - NOW. We'll never have a better chance than we do now.

Students Pour Empathy Into Startling Poetry
By Delphine Schrank
If a war could be stopped with flights of compassion, 10-year-olds in Darfur might sleep a little easier tonight.

Comment from Start Loving: I've been captive of our Darfur family's agony for more than three years now. There is no hope for them until our Hearts wake-up that they are OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY. In these past more than three years the Heart journey of these 10 year olds is one of the only rays of light I've seen; one of the only instances where our Family Darfur has made it into any of our Western Hearts. Oh, they've made it into plenty of our Heads, but with these 10 year olds... Love has happened. "And the Children will lead them." Children, lead us

Sudan Embassy Darfur Campaign Day #89

TUESDAY, Day #90 will be spent away from the Embassy Darfur Campaign on various campaign related tasks including blogging and preparing signs for marching that will not cover my soon-to-be Auschwitz-like physique.

Wednesday through MONDAY OR TUESDAY also may bring my absence from the Embassy as I continue the privelage of covering for Ellen, the hero that has been the sole support of the Darfur Sudan Embassy Campaign every day.

EVERYTHING - Darfur and the world. DEPENDS ON ESTABLISHING A Brigade of PeaceMakers: Darfur. Join. Get others to join. Now.

Sudan Embassy Darfur Campaign Day #80

NOTE: To help Ellen, the partner in this Sudan Embassy / Darfur Campaign will not be on site at Embassy Thursday 5/24 or Wednesday Thursday 5/31, 6/1. Will be collecting and distributing food for the needy in her stead.

Bathing, Laundry and Blogging at the Washington Peace Center this evening, Saturday.

Returning Sunday early afternoon after helping out at the Washington Peace Center that has been such an extraordinary daily support of the Embassy Campaign.

Next Wednesday for 8 days I will usually be at the Embassy on the usual Marching for Darfur in the morning, but in the evenings I will be assisting friends that have been supporting the Darfur campaign, and therefore absent from the Embassy except mornings and early afternoons. Regarding the Hunger Strike these days, I anticipate dropping Calorie intake to allow for the hours marching that will be sacrificed; dropping to 300-400 calories per day I'll guess - some fruit and a small piece of chicken or fish.

What will it cost us, this killing Darfur by lip service? This post might help you, as it helps me - link.

Modified Hunger Strike continues:

  • Marching to accelerate weight loss so as to become a visual on Mass. Ave of the forced starvation being visited by our neglect on Darfur; 8-12 hours per day burning up to 3000 extra calories.
  • Consuming about 800 calories per day to survive for as many months as it takes.

My energy, mental, and physical capabilities are well within the "green zone" as far as short or long term safety is concerned, but my productivity is definitely starting to suffer big time. My body and mind are getting a bit worn out. Much, much left, but clearly I am dropping away from my peak abilities, for now.

NPR: Darfur Sudan Embassy Vigil Day #75

Commentary: Hunger Striker Wants to Make Difference in Darfur
May-06-2007, All Things Considered
...believes his actions can make a difference in Darfur. He inspired this commentary from NPR's Kitty Eisele. KITTY EISELE: He calls himself ?Start Loving,? but actually it's the last...

Listeners Letters: McGinley Commentary, Immigrant Profile
All Things Considered, May 12, 2007 · Listeners air their thoughts on Kitty Eisele's commentary about Jay McGinley, and Debbie Elliot's profile of Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, a former illegal migrant worker, now a citizen and a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins University.

Start Loving - In defense of Ms. Eisele: "I take it as a kindness in support of the Darfur cause that NPR aired the comment above from the California listener. With all respect and affection for the listener, this Californian clearly did NOT understand Ms. Eisele's report. Clearly Ms. Eisele was communicating with courageous honesty her conflicted support and respect for my embrace of people 6000 miles away; and making herself extremely vulnerable to criticism through her selfless self-depreciation. God bless your courage, insight, compassion, skill and support for Darfur Ms. Eisele. Tragically so far, one in a million posses or use these wonderful characteristics you have displayed."

Start Loving correcting Ms. Eisele regarding White House protesters: "Among the only people in the world "sane" enough to stand for their brothers and sisters in Darfur, Iraq and other places thousands of miles from the U.S. are some of those "crazy" White House protesters you so carelessly maligned. Ellen Thomas, with support from her husband Thomas is the only person yet to come forward with daily support of the Sudan Embassy Darfur Action for which you have at least guarded hope. Ellen was one of those White House demonstrators for 18 years, and now chairs the Washington Peace Center and is a world respected anti Nuclear activist. Thomas is in his 26th year of White House vigil against nuclear armaments and for truth and wisdom in government. Thomas and Ellen's bill Prop 1 to eliminate nucs worldwide has been proposed by Rep. Eleanor Homes Norton every year for many, many years now and has ever increasing international support. Pretty Crazy huh?

The prophets of every age are judged by their peers as "crazy," and by history as the only ones that were "sane" in their time; the ones that if NOT "stayed away from" might have averted, well, Armageddon. Please take care. You, Ms. Eisele are so much better than that.

ps: Are there no crazies in-front-of the White House? Are there no crazies IN the White House?"

Darfur Sudan Embassy Campaign: Day 74 May 13th

About once per week I go to family's abode to bathe, blog and launder. 9pm my 12 hour march yesterday brought me to them. Usually I return by early morning to the Embassy but after blogging and writing all night long, at 6am I had hours more writing and blogging to do. So I took a nap, now am doing the blogging, and by early to mid afternoon will resume the Embassy campaign; UNLESS, I return tomorrow morning to the Embassy. I think a day away to refress may be wise.

By looks of the mirror it is within hours or days time of my shirt coming off and shorts on to show the initial inklings of Darfur Holocaust / Auschwitz on Embassy Row!!!!!!! I am so grateful.

More later today.

Darfur Hunger Strike Sudan Embassy: May 7

Things have never looked so bleak for Darfur. It turns out that Congress, the UK, and President Bush are every good at lip service and deception as el-Bashir and we-the-people are. We are going to talk our Darfuries to death.

It will take a miracle to break this deadly cycle of talk, do nothing, talk, do nothing....

We must wake up and see that they are our family. There is no other hope.

Day 58 Darfur Hunger Strike Sudan Embassy

After 11 hours of marching at and around the Sudan Embassy today I've returned to the Washington Peace Center to bathe, launder, blog and prepare a handout for tomorrow's Save Darfur InActivism at 2pm, Lafayette Park at the White House. My brothers and sisters in these performing organizations will not forgive me [when we meet for the entrance exam to Heaven] if I don't do what I can to awaken them from the murderous state of denial they are wallowing in - imagining that what they call "Activism" is anything but self-pleasuring of the most heinous sort. Every logical, historical and theoretical analysis would say that week after week their efforts, tactics and lack of strategy is hopeless for Darfur. Yet they merrily persist week after week. Ah that the Truth would set them free.

I expect to return to the Embassy tomorrow afternoon, Sunday, after the 2pm non-event.

Have had some extreme pain to the point of discontinuing the marching. The marching is so enormously valuable that I persisted hour after hour way past any point of endurance I've found prior in my life. Hey, the family in Darfur is being tortured. This fact makes the pain bearable. As a matter of fact, when I reach a pre-targeted time on the clock when I will rest, and now am in "my time," then the pain DOES become unbearable. For my Darfuries I can bear it, for me - no. Hmmmm. Fabulous how the nervous system works.

A tip from a friend, just as I was seriously at a loss and giving up, focused me on posture. With the powerful new posters I deliberately began looking almost directly downward as I marched to avoid any and all possibility of eye contact - something that could discourage an onlooker from looking and pondering deeply. This was Monday I think. Well, it occurred to me at the time that this would give me neck trouble and oddly it had not done so. It did not occur to me that it would destroy my muscles on the shin by causing me to strike my heal on every step. But that is just what happened. By luck, persistence and experimentation, with the hint of my friend I retrained my walking and am now back to the usual but bearable pain. Thank God.

Between the encouragement shouted from cars or spoken by pedestrians I can tell I am causing people to ponder and maybe search their hearts a little. A few idiots a day shout hate but they are completely hateful and there is no indication they know anything about me or Darfur - just an obvious target for hate.

With several days of marching with great difficulty - much more slowly - my weight loss seemed to slow. Today however my belt easily notched in aggressively from it's prior home giving me great encouragement. Also, by my choice I carried my stuff on my back the 12 blocks to the Peace Center tonight. It is a riot! What was easy for me to carry just two weeks ago now feels like a grand piano!

All organs seem totally normal. No nausea in weeks. No dizziness. No swelling in the legs. Brain is - well - like usual.

Darfur Hunger Strike Day #56 Sudan Embassy

EVERYTHING - Darfur and the world. DEPENDS ON ESTABLISHING A Brigade of PeaceMakers: Darfur. Join. Get others to join. Now.

I anticipate that with the work of yesterday through the wee hours of this morning I am ready to enter an assault on hearts / souls of months, maybe many many months in and around the Sudan Embassy.

The agony and the ecstasy continue. Much about the spiritual and physical aspects of this campaign are at http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/.

It is now a race against the clock for Darfur. Bush blustering creates and opportunity. China's attention is now on the implications of their obstruction. UK/US Security Council control through June 30.

I expect to be in a race to avoid Darfur / Global death 24/7, desperately trying to be God's Grief and Suffering regarding Darfur / U.S. - International Heartlessness at and around 221o Mass. Ave / Embassy Row, DC.

I expect to continue 10-12 hours/day forced marching for maximum communication with the new posters and to drop to an an Auschwitz physique (although I'm pretty close now). I'm thereby burning about 2500 cal/day and dropping an estimated 1-1.5 lbs per day. Within two weeks I expect to hit bottom and then, if God and Angels provide the 2500 cal/day I expect to continue to keep expending I'll stabilize indefinitely.

Pray for Darfur. Pray for my faithfulness. Pray for your loved ones born and yet unborn.

The fate of the world is being decided, now.

Day 54

[Off site tonight to prepare to replace the banners when wind and rain destroy the current ones soon. Also a few new posts on JesusGodGood....]

All day at the Sudan Embassy. Dropped another 1.5 lbs through 10 hours of forced marching with the posters.

The pain was quite extreme by mid afternoon. Turns out I have more capacity to suffer for my "family" than I knew.

I Pray it continues and grows.

Day 53 Darfur Hunger Strike Sudan Embassy

[Away from the Embassy this evening to bathe, do laundary, and blog.]

For Darfur, trying to establish the urgency, the reality of "global family emergency" that has been missing from all the activism I've lost an estimated 45 lbs leaving another 10-20 to get to an Auschwitz skeliton of 110 lbs. Upon hitting that profile I'll go shirtless as much as possible infront of the embassy to try to bring the Holocaust to a City and world that obviously does NOT remember.

SEE The world is doing nothing to halt the genocide is again being perpetrated in Darfur - that was the message from Yosef (Tommy Lapid), a Holocaust survivor from Budapest, who now serves as chairman of the Yad VaShem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem for the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis during World War II.

Day #47 - wind prevents operation at the Embassy

40-60 mph winds make it impossible to hold the signs at the Embassy, hence I am taking refuge at the Washington Peace Center until the wind dies down - presumably tomorrow morning.

NPR stopped by for a 45 minute interview at 2am last night. Al Jazerra stopped by for 45 minutes video interview today.

I've been averaging about 8 hours exercise per day with an intent of gaining a Auschwitz-like physique asap. Today my body was quite shutting down so I took 50 cal of vitamin water and 150 cal of vegetable puree.

I pray many hours per day for guidance to God, Jesus, Gandhi, King, Beko, Mandella... They all, in my imagination tell me to keep going. I joyfully comply.

Many of you have asked about my "family." Jesus my Master spoke extensively about this. "Who is my [family]" he said. And He stated quite clearly that when we pick up our Cross and follow Him our "family" will abandon us and that others, many more than before, will become family to you. This is exactly what has happened to me. Surprising that Jesus, allegedly considered the Son of God by many, followed by almost no one, would be exactly correct? Apparently this is enormously surprising to many. Hypocrites.

For Gandhi the problem, THE PROBLEM was cowards - something that we have a country full of here in the US. The military he could work with, cowards were useless he found. Things haven't changed. From the beginning the folks that have "gotten" what I am doing at the Embassy are the Secret Service - you know, the folks that would take a bullet for you or me? "Hey, if we can do anything to help you just let us know," an officer again said to me today.

If some of us do not stop being cowards, as late in life I seem to have, we will be handing our posterity unmitigated Hell on Earth. God damn us forever if this is what we do.

Darfur Hunger Strike Day 45. NO JULY FOR DARFUR

Dr. King, "A man is not fit [equipped] to live until he knows what he would die for."

A Hunger For Justice : Darfur Becomes One Man's Cause for Deprivation
Delphine Schrank, C01 (Post) Washington Post, April 14, 2007

NOTE: WE HAVE UNTIL JUNE 30, CONTROL OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL, TO RESCUE & RESTORE DARFUR. JOIN A BRIGADE OF PEACEMAKERS, NOW, OR IT IS TOO LATE.

45 days now Darfur Hunger Strike at the Sudan Embassy in DC and every minute of every day bears out fully what Dr. King was saying. No one has more Peace, Love, Joy, and Life each minute of every day than I am having. Yes, and an enormous amount of Agony for my family, our family in Darfur, and here in the U.S. Oh my God, how can we here have become so dead in our Humanity that after four years we are not dropping everything, EVERYTHING to give Bush the unmistakable mandate he needs, HE NEEDS to pull out all the stops and PEACEFULLY but in an impeccable TOUGH LOVE, GENUINELY TOUGH LOVE MANNER TO STOP THIS GENOCIDE NOW AND RESTORE DARFURIES LOVINGLY AND RICHLY TO THEIR LIVES, with an air tight, extremely time-aggressive short, medium and long term solution?!?!?!?!?

Darfur is the battle for humanity for planet earth, AND for the Rescue and Restore of 2.5 million Darfuries currently in concentration camps. Worth giving your life for? Do you love your children, born and unborn? If using Darfur we in the U.S. don't / can't raise enough humanity to save them then there will no longer be enough humanity to counter the forces of destruction / entropy in the US or world wide. Game over, Armageddon begins / continues unopposed in a myriad of excruciating ways. For strategic background see: Darfur Hunger Strike Day 35: To The Death or Resolution by June 30 and also Darfur: Necessary components for resolution by June 30 .

Today began my power dive. Darfur and Washington need my body to immediately manifest the neglect we have been visiting on Darfur. As long as I can, 12 hours today, I will abstain from all calories and exercise all day long. Remember the pictures of Auschwitz? That is the picture I need to be on Embassy row in front of the Sudan Embassy ASAP. God grant me the speed.
Much computer work on these Sites has consumed evenings this week. With that work now complete I expect to be at the Sudan Embassy 7/24 through June 30.

Everything now hinges on 1 person joining the Hunger Strike. Then we can attract two more.... There is no other legitimate hope. Oh, we can continue counting on luck / divine intervention. There is NO CHANCE that this would lovingly Restore Darfur nor be sufficient to reverse the entropy destroying all aspects of earth; only raising our humanity can do that.

Sat 4/14: Actually at the Embassy all day.

REGARDING YOUR COMMENTS ON THE FOLLOWING POST OF THIS MORNING:

Dear brothers and sisters,

Counter to my plan I spent 12 hours from early morning in front of the Embassy. After a few emails I expect to return there for many weeks uninterrupted so this may be my last communique to you. Virtually everything you address is covered in one of three places:
1. Look at the upper left of this page. APRIL 14th ARTICLES.
2. March 13th Press Release lower on this blog, and letter to el-Bashir.
3. Click my Profile and select BrigadeOfPeaceMakersDarfur. Explore this thoroughly.


This is not a brush off. To the contrary I respect your thoughts and the time that went into this writing was in anticipation of your needs and desired.

Loving you always, Start

SAT. 4/14 AT THE COMPUTER

Due to the Washington Post article today will be spent near a computer so that emails and comments can be addressed immediately.

Darfur: What Holocaust Rescuers Did

The tactics of the Save Darfur Movement might be appropriate if what we were fighting for was recognition of Genocide in the first 2 months (NOT YEAR FOUR!) or for Coke vs Pepsi on college campuses.

Eva Fogelmen's, "Courage and Conscience: Rescuers of Jews from the Holocaust," shows us what Genocide Rescuing should look like. Duh! PEOPLE LAYING DOWN THEIR LIVES.

Darfur: US activism a COMPLETE MORAL FAILURE

Darfur Hunger Strike to the Death or Complete Resolution by June 30; Day 34 water only.

What is wrong with this nasty, angry man! Some of my brothers and sisters in the activist community must be wondering. The rest have simply written me off.

Imagine the three people in the world you love the very most. Remember how much you love them. Do it. Ok. Now imagine that 4 years ago an all powerful entity, God, came and disguised these loved ones as Darfuries beyond any hope of recognition and placed them in Darfur; and further told you that if you told anyone that your loved ones would die immediately. You are told that the only way you can save them is to stop the genocide and restore Darfuries to their lives. WOULD YOU BE ACTING ANY DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU ARE NOW?!??!?!?!?!!?!?!?!??!? You sure as hell would.

Here is the other way that I look at it. Another one of tests of accountability I hold myself to in my personal actions is to imagine myself in Heaven after I die in front of my Darfur brothers and sisters explaining what I did or did not do. I think I'll do all right in these conversations. In similar conversations with my Cambodian, Rwandan, Balkan... brothers and sisters the behaviors of mine I describe will leave me shamed and without a shred of humanity.

I apply the same test when considering the behavior of my brothers and sisters in the "Save Darfur Movement (SDM)." I envision the conversation going something like this:

SDM: "Yes, we knew it was 4 years. Yes we knew 450,000 exterminated. Yes we knew 2.5 million in concentration camps of forced starvation, rape, mutilation, murder and disease. We in the US agonized for you our Darfur brothers and sisters. We had meetings, and more meetings. We fasted from luxuries for one whole day per year. ONE ENTIRE DAY - WE ABSTAINED FROM ONE OF OUR LUXURIES! On another day we formed a human chain. On another day we sent postcards. POSTCARDS! In all there were one million! We divested our Colleges and States. Sure the real money came from China but it helped a little and it gave us great connections and enhanced our resumes too! Two different sunny afternoons we went to parks for demonstrations, and we even listened to some of the speakers! Wow, we really pulled out all the stops! I mean, what else would you have wanted??!?!?!

DARFUR: "We wanted you to treat us as you would your immediate family, which before God, we are. "Do unto others, ALL that you would have done unto you." We were raped every day. Our children were starved every day. Our men were shot every day. Our women were mutilated every day. YOU DID NOTHING."

The lesson of the holocaust was entirely: IN THE FACE OF GENOCIDE THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD IMMEDIATELY LAY DOWN THEIR VERY LIVES UNTIL IT STOPS. Eric Reeves, Brian Steidle and who else has laid down their lives for Darfur?

The great desecration of the Holocaust didn't happen last month in Iran; it has been happening in the most Holocaust educated in the world, the US, for the last 4 years as we have risked nothing, suffered nothing, sacrificed nothing. We have done nothing.

Now we repent and vote immediately with our lives, WITH OUR LIVES giving Bush an iron clad, unmistakable mandate to end this, or we are Damned, and Darfur is dead.

Original, bad thinking? Strikingly parallel to what Rabbi Abraham J. Heschel had to say in 1938, possibly the most relevant prophetic, moral writing I've ever seen. For example:

* "We have trifled with the name of God. We have taken the ideals in vain. We have called for the Lord. He came. And was ignored. We have preached but eluded Him. We have praised but defied Him. Now we reap the fruits of our failure. Through centuries His voice cried in the wilderness. How skillfully it was trapped and imprisoned in the temples! How often it was drowned or distorted! Now we behold how it gradually withdraws, abandoning one people after another, departing from their souls, despising their wisdom. The taste for the good has all but gone from the earth. Men heap spite upon cruelty, malice upon atrocity."

* "Soldiers in the horror of battle offer solemn testimony that life is not a hunt for pleasure, but an engagement for service; that there are things more valuable than life; that the world is not a vacuum. Either we make it an altar for God or it is invaded by demons. "

* "The Almighty has not created the universe that we may have opportunities to satisfy our greed, envy and ambition. We have not survived that we may waste our years in vulgar vanities. The martyrdom of millions demands that we consecrate ourselves to the fulfillment of God’s dream of salvation. Israel did not accept the Torah of their own free will. When Israel approached Sinai, God lifted up the mountain and held it over their heads, saying: “Either you accept the Torah or be crushed beneath the mountain.

”The mountain of history is over our heads again. Shall we renew the covenant with God?"

Darfur: Necessary components for resolution by June 30

Darfur Hunger Strike to the Death or Resolution by June 30. The following are not mandatory. What is mandatory for the Hunger Strike to end is that it is certain by June 30 that:

A. The Atrocities are coming to an immediate end.
B. A Profoundly Generous Restoration Plan is with certainty underway for our Darfur family.

An astonishingly stupid and destructive trap scrupulously fallen into by those that consider themselves "Darfur Activists" is to tell the US Government what to do. This is every bit as self defeating and idiotic as going into the Surgeon's office and telling her how to do your appendix operation. What you the client need to demand is that your pain stop and that your health returns (A & B above). The rest is the Surgeon's job. They have the staff, the knowledge and the responsibility, YOU DO NOT. DON'T CLOUD THE ISSUE.

And I intend not to cloud the issue with the following. These are NOT requirements for me to end the Hunger Strike. However, it seems clear to me however that for the above requirements to be met within less than 3 months that the following elements are an utter necessity:

1. BINDING ARBITRATION TEAM OF CARTER, TUTU AND MANDELLA DIRECTING THE ENTIRE SUDAN AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY. None of the International players involved with Darfur/Sudan to date have the moral authority to develop a workable, implementable, enforceable, embraceable international plan, or Darfur Peace Plan within the next 3 months. Not the US, UN, EU, AU, NATO, Arab States.... Whereas this failure of credibility is due more to the shameful inaction by we citizens of the world, the issue now is that the world players stand unqualified. Impeccable Moral Clarity is crucial to long term peace and security in Darfur for a host of Sudan, Darfur, and International reasons. This bears no explanation it is so obvious. The morally impeccable team of Carter, Tutu and Mandella are crucial.

2. ZERO TOLERANCE PERMANENTLY FOR EL-BASHIR / REBEL FACTION HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES, LYING, DECEIT, DELAYS AND DEFIANCE OF INTERNATIONAL WILL. These folks have proven themselves totally and unquestionably deceitful, with total disregard for the people of Darfur. The extreme redemptive brotherhood that Tutu for example knows how to bring to bear must restore some level of humanity to these folks. But as with a beloved pit-bull that once has bitten a child, if it is allowed to live, it can never go unwatched again, on pain of imprisonment or immediate death.

3. INTERNATIONAL COALITION OF BROTHERHOOD COUNTRIES TO SAVE DARFUR. There has rarely been a situation of such moral clarity as Darfur. God / Brotherhood / Basic Humanity must not be toyed with. These must be the standard that the US and those who join it must be held to. Every religion demands this. The core teachings of our religions, and the Truth in our Heart must be denied no longer, or Armageddon for the planet is at hand. This fact is more a matter of physics than of mysticism. Look to your heart. You know this to be true. The US must immediately BEG, with PURE BROTHERHOOD for the countries of the world to unite in the immediate rescue and restoration of Darfur. Some countries will join. Those that do not are still brothers! But they are brothers that will by regretfully bypassed, and defied if necessary in the resolution of this crisis. The world, and the US will answer to God for its action or inaction on Darfur. If we hold ourselves to moral perfection God (whatever you understand that to be) will see us through, including short term hostilities from Arab or Muslim fanatics. God / Morality / Conscience must be our guide and our shield. It would be the finest hour for the US, and our last chance to turn the world toward Heaven on Earth.

4. MORALLY IMPECCABLE BEHAVIOR BY THE US AND OTHERS IN THE INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD COALITION. Sacrifice by this Coalition of Brother Nations is what everything hinges on. The slightest action of opportunism or self service will with utter certainty doom Darfur and end the last great hope for mankind.

5. U.S. TO FORSWEAR ANY MEDDLING IN SUDAN - CHINA OIL RELATIONSHIPS. Clearly and understandably China is fearful that if others engage in Darfur that their preferential trading relationships will be interfered with. The U.S. must publicly and unmistakably pledge to the world that they will not allow this to happen.

6. INTERNATIONAL COALITION TO SHARE THE BURDEN OF CHINA, INDIA AND INDONESIA INTERFERENCE OF TRADING RELATIONS. Bashir's cash inflow must cease immediately. But who is to bear the burden? We are all brother nations. Carter, Tutu, and Mandella must determine how the coalition will share the pain with these three major trading partners of Sudan. Brothers do that.

7. US TO INTERVENE UNILATERALLY IF NECESSARY. Four years. Untold brutality continuing. God demands action. If despite the most heroic, honest before God brotherhood by the US to forge an international commission others will not join, or China continues to obstruct, then with MORAL PERFECTION the U.S must act alone.

8. AFTER THE BINDING ARBITRATION PEACE AGREEMENT IMMEDIATELY - 20-30,000 PEACE KEEPERS ON THE GROUND with as many from African and Arab countries as possible.

Darfur Hunger Strike Day 35: To The Death or Resolution by June 30

Now is the time to end the Gencide - by June 30th. Darfur on Their Radar Screen, Washington Post. According to this article:

* Bush is furious at tepid sanction options and has called his staff for definitive ones.
* England has the Security Council in May.
* US has Security Council in June.
* Bush wants China to stop obstructing.

Just one problem. The citizens of the US have not given Bush 1/1000th of the mandate he needs. We've taken no risks and we are asking him to risk major political capital - his life. This is functionally, effectively and morally bankrupt on the part of we the citizens.

We all vote with our lives EVERY DAY! Like me most of my life we vote for bigger houses, better jobs, higher incomes, more DVD's, more reality TV, or Starbucks, more McDonald's, more Outback Steakhouse.... The elected officials see this and THIS is what the work on for us.

WE DO NOT VOTE WITH OUR LIVES FOR DARFUR. Yet.

For the next 2.5 months you and I need to VOTE WITH OUR VERY LIVES, giving an unmistakable moral and political mandate to Bush to invest the full moral, political, diplomatic and financial capital of this country to rescue and lovingly restore the people of Darfur now.

I'm going to vote with my life - I'm laying my life on the line. Next Tuesday will be day 41 of my water only hunger strike in front of the Sudan Embassy on Embassy row in DC. On water only I've got only about 20 days left I figure. But on 600 calories per day I can last until the end of June. So April 10th I go on 600 cal / day and fast either to the death, or until I see:

1. An absolutely certain plan to end the atrocities in the works;
2. An absolutely certain plan to restore the people of Darfur FULLY to their lives, IN THE WORKS;

Death or 1 & 2, which ever come first. This is the best I know how to put Bush in the strongest moral and political position to take the risks he needs to take.

What are you going to do? Join me. Or lay down YOUR life UNMISTAKEABLY some other way. Now. Do it.

US Christians shamefully exploit Darfur Genocide

Saving Darfur, Multiple Steps at a Time
Coalition's Lobbying Blitz Is Credited With Spurring Bush's Sudan Sanctions By Jeffrey H. BirnbaumWashington Post Staff WriterFriday, June 1, 2007; Page D01

"Whoever claims to abide in [Jesus] aught to live just as [Jesus] lived," 1st letter of John, Chapter 2.

Sudan Embassy Vigil Day #93

GOLDEN RULE: "Do unto others ALL that you would have them do unto you." This has not been considered, let alone practiced. Inactivism thus far has been TOTAL MORAL FAILURE.

And who in the Darfur InActivist Christian Community is doing these teachings of Jesus? In year four of a genocide Jesus would be hanging banners? Jesus holding signs for an hour someplace all the while thinking and talking about everything except Darfur and having a grand social time of it? Jesus lobying with congress for a day? Jesus calling the President - and this is it?

"Do unto others ALL that you would have them do unto you."

"The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep."

This can be the day that Christianity, real "lays down his life" stuff came back to earth. It must be that day. We'll be given no more chances like Darfur.

Lay down your life for Darfur, with us or some other way - Brigade of PeaceMakers: for Darfur . Do it now. In the name of God.

Darfur Hunger Strike Day 22: Goodby

My dear brothers and sisters around the world. As noted below I've been away from the 24 h/day Sudan Embassy Darfur Hunger strike for more than a day now to deal with a wrongful arrest that seems to be dropped. This has given me access to computer that I'll not have on the sidewalk of the Embassy. I expect this is my final goodbye to you as I'll spend what is left of my body trying to thaw el-Bashir's heart on his Embassy sidewalk.

You still don't see it. Saving Darfur is about saving your world. Darfur is a mortal wound on the humanity of your Soul, and the Soul of your global brothers and sisters. Leaving it un-Rescued and un-Restored is bleeding away from you whatever bit of Heart / Humanity / Sanity you've had left in this cesspool / toxic dump of a selfish world.

Your Heart will not survive much more of this. You need to get off of your death-bed now. Draw on your Heart. Through exercise it will regain strength - quickly.

Otherwise, you have once and for all lost planet earth to the end times. You will give Living Hell to your children.

May God help you.

Your loving brother forever, Start Loving

Day 21 Darfur Hunger Strike at Sudan Embassy

No response from the Embassy of any sort. None was expected. This most recent Darfur Hunger Strike has been the most physically difficult by far. No matter.

Being at the Washington Peace Center, my new home thanks to angels Thomas and Ellen I've had access to the Internet last night and this. Tomorrow morning I expect to be my last computer encounter in this lifetime.

By all appearances my January 8th, shamefully wrongful arrest the White House for camping (sitting up at 11pm with Darfur Signs on day 67 is now camping? Madness. Bullying pure and simple) was "no papered;" the arresting officer Mallot did not follow through in filing the paperwork. My guess is that this is either usual him to get an adrenaline rush by bullying people while hiding behind his badge and gun, or he had a pang of conscience. I hope it is the latter.

The news on Darfur has never been more heartbreaking. After 4 years of Genocide Russia and China want to obstruct the UN Report by Nobel Peace Prize winners? My brother el-Bashier continues to keep the UN at bay? How can we live with ourselves. I mean it. How can we live with our inhumanity, with our impotence regarding Darfur? I'll never understand.

Darfur Hunger Strike Day 20, Sudan Embassy

This is my first night not at the embassy since the 13th. I am tonight with friends so I can be at what I'm told is an arraignment for the heinous arrest at the White House by an out of his mind, bully police officer. My religion, Loving, my Master being Jesus forbids going to "Law." I am not going for the purpose of winning or losing, but rather to talk to my brother an try to bring him to his senses.

I find the Sudan Embassy Darfur Hunger Strike to the Death to be utterly right, and utterly sacred. Someone has got to start the giving-our-lives for our Darfur family. I am overjoyed to try. Because of the sacred nature of this campaign I was going to blow off this date, but then I could be picked up and jailed for blowing it off. I hope this is just an arraignment tomorrow. If not I expect my demise to be greatly accelerated. They would force feed me in prison to stop the hunger strike. But through noncopperation with the evil of their inhumane treatment I'd probable wind up in solitary for a week and by discontinuing liquids I can carry the strike through to completion as I've promised my brother el-Bashir that I would.

If all goes well tomorrow morning I expect to be back at the Embassy 24/7 on the Darfur Hunger Strike until my heart stops somewhere's around 20-40 days from now.

There is much on this experience at another blog: http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/

Darfur Hunger Striker's Letter to President el-Bashir

March 13, 2007

President el-Bashier
Country of Sudan, Africa, Human Family

Dear brother,

I mourn to the point of death for your mutilated humanity / the “death” of your Soul, of your heart. I mourn for the torment, atrocity the Hell on Earth you have created as the result for my brothers and sisters in Darfur.

I love you my brother. You are no better or worse than I. You are no more to blame for who you are than I am for who I am.

But I am to blame if I do not do whatever I am able with my life to bring you back to your humanity, your sanity, your Divine Self.

I'm a poor student of life but everything I have learned in life* launches me on a course. This is my 13th day of Hunger Strike (60 in the last 9 months; 134 days of Vigil at the White House), intended to be Ransom for the restoration of your Humanity, for your Soul and for the salvation of my dear brothers and sisters in Darfur.

Today by noon I hope to be in front of your Embassy in Washington delivering this letter. I intend to continue my water only hunger strike until it is clear to me that your Heart has thawed toward your family of Darfur. I believe I am prepared to let the hardheartedness that is exterminating Darfuries exterminate myself as well in the hopes that one more body might help you see.

My brother, you are going down in history and in our Father's eyes as a butcher of humanity along side of Hitler, Bush, Cheney, the Zionists and Pol Pot. My brother, it is not too late. You need only turn from your head, from endless dialog, you need only turn to your Heart, the domain of our Father. Your heart, our Father will tell you what to do.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Your loving brother forever,

Start Loving

Monday, March 12, 2007

AS NEAR AS I CAN TELL, THIS SITE IS THE REASON I WAS BORN.

Please click. This site (please click), what it contains is revelation to me of the last several weeks, the culmination of a lifelong search. Todays Press Release is some testament of the power these insights hold in my life. For the first time I have the theoretical framework to see how to Save Darfur. Duh.

Darfur Hunger Strike Moves to Sudan Embassy 24 Hours Per Day

PRESS RELEASE: Darfur Hunger Strike Moves to Sudan Embassy 24 Hours Per Day Until el-Bashir Regains His Humanity

Washington, DC March 12, 2007 Darfur Hunger Strike day thirteen moves to the Sudan Embassy tomorrow, 3/13 at about noon, where the striker intends to remain until Sudan President el-Bashir regains his humanity and brings full and generous protection, relief and restoration to his tortured Darfur family. Start Loving, previously known as Jay McGinley, has attempted to end the Darfur Genocide since May 14, 2006 by vigiling 134 days at and around the White House, accompanying this with 60 days of water-only hunger strike.

Loving, an executive in the computer industry turning around failing organizations most of his adult life, is also a trained psychological counselor and was on the management team of a small retail chain in Philadelphia until May 13, 2006 when he gave up everything to fight nonviolently in DC for his Darfur family.

“I appeal to the heart, to the humanity, to the Immortal Soul of my brother el-Bashir,” said Loving. “Al-Bashir is headed toward a place in history alongside Adolph Hitler, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Zionists and Pol Pot. He has the blood of millions on his hands. I hope to give my life, if that is required, in an attempt to awaken his heart in time to save my brother and some of our Darfur brothers and sisters. I hope to find the heroism and courage of my blessed brother and sister U.S. Soldiers who willingly give their Lives in Iraq for others, as mistaken as their beliefs may be.”

According to the faith based SaveDarfur.org coalition, “not since the Rwandan genocide of 1994 has the world seen such a calculated campaign of displacement, starvation, rape, and mass slaughter... Darfur has been embroiled in a deadly conflict for over three years. At least 400,000 people have been killed; more than 2 million innocent civilians have been forced to flee their homes and now live in displaced-persons camps in Sudan or in refugee camps in neighboring Chad; and more than 3.5 million men, women, and children are completely reliant on international aid for survival.”

Loving faces added difficulties in his Sudan Embassy Hunger Strike campaign including a record of arrests for peacefully demonstrating at the Pentagon, Federal Court House and the White House. Despite more than 60 nonviolent, all night vigils in front of the White House acknowledged by the police to be lawful and admirable, in late January of 2007 a rogue police officer, under the cloak of darkness, harassed and then arrested Loving for sitting up under a tree holding Darfur posters; just as Loving had done on the previous nights. Loving's court date for this arrest is March 21st and the Sudan Embassy Hunger Strike will preclude attendance at this hearing.

Additionally, Loving is completely without support or backing for his campaign which will make his campaign more difficult to survive for any significant length of time. On previous strikes Loving has had access to water , bathroom facilities and the protection of Lafayette Park Officers. Additionally, without support Loving has no knowledge or experience to guide him regarding the potential behavior of police. Despite the fact that he will be entirely nonviolent it is unknown what police action may be mounted by the various law enforcement agencies.

“Time is long past “up” for our Darfur family, and for the Soul of my brother el-Bashir” said Loving. “I have no illusion that my efforts will make any difference, but that is not my responsibility. Our Father calls us to be faithful, not successful. As best I can tell Our Father, Humanity, Conscience, Love, whatever you call it demands that we risk everything we have to awaken a Saving Love, Brotherhood, Humanity in a brother, el-Bahsir, in the face of such suffering and atrocity. This is my best attempt.”
