Declaration of A Hunger Strike
The People as Fur Torn Off Its Flesh
|Please turn your head to view; lower branches torn off the trunk|
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.
As to my credentials, I am the descendant of many generations of Herrnhuters, who gave the Latvian people their identity, among which my grandfather Antons Benjamiņš was a major contributor as founder and editor of a major newspaper (Jaunākās Ziņas) during the ‘First’ Latvian nation, I am 81 yrs old, a citizen of Latvia (11+20 yrs) and the United States of America (46 yrs), and lay claim to the First President of Latvia, Janis Čakste http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C4%81nis_%C4%8Cakste , who through his son Mintauts Čakste, was to become my godfather, which honor was given me in the undreamt event of an emergency situation such as Latvia is facing today due to government neglect of the Latvian people and Latvia’s interests.
