A Philadelphia man announced today that he will continue his hunger strike until 20,000-30,000 UN peacekeepers are deployed to Darfur. Jay McGinley, 54, has been on a round-the-clock vigil for Darfur at the White House since May 14, but has recently decided to escalate his tactics. “Our Darfur family is out of time,” said the 54 year-old. “I am throwing my lot in fully with them to attempt to bring the urgency of their need to Washington, and to my brothers and sisters throughout the US and the world.”
