I think she will survive…
From The Contra Costa Times:
On the fourth night of her front yard hunger strike, Diana Ponce lay delirious under the carport, fighting off the chill under a fuzzy blanket emblazoned with the Mexican flag.
Neighbors sat clustered around her on white plastic lawn chairs. Children smacked at a yellow volleyball in the street. Toddlers tricycled past fence-strung banners that read “Tenemos Que Unirnos” — We have to unite.
Outraged by recent news accounts of vigilante Mexican border hawks, the 32-year-old San Pablo woman took to the streets — really, her driveway — on two lawn chairs pushed together. Ponce, a diabetic, is fasting there for a week.
“How dare they call us terrorists,” she said.
She refused not only food, but also water for the first two days of her fast, which ends Thursday.
