After much deliberation, we have decided to end our hunger strike. We feel we have gone on as long as we can without hurting ourselves.
We remain deeply grateful to all those who took the time to tell the Forest Service and City of Flagstaff officials that this issue continues to be of great concern to the community.
Although we failed to get our requests addressed, we hope that we at least contributed to the ongoing effort to bring attention to environmental and human rights abuses both here and abroad. We continue to hope that our elected officials will finally make good on their stated goals of building a community that is truly inclusive and truly sustainable.
Thanks again to everyone, past and present, who has given their time to address this issue.
Jessica and Joseph
