Description: Elliott Adams,
Vietnam War veteran fasted for 80 days in solidarity with Guantanamo
detainees in protest of their treatment. Come hear Elliott Adams speak
about his fast, the conditions at Guantanamo and environmental issues
facing America.

Adams, former mayor of Sharon Springs and former president of the
national organization Veterans for Peace has long advocated for closure
of the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.He began fasting on May 17
because of his distress over detainees who continue to be held at the
prison without charges or trial, and because of their treatment, saying
that it goes against everything he fought for during his years in the
military. He limited himself to 300 calories and 3 liters of water a
day.
