Dan Perrins – hunger strike day 4

A moving video interview with Paul Elam, we’ll link to new pieces daily as Dan’s hunger strike progresses. We obviously don’t want Dan to die, but he repeats in this video that he plans to sign a legally-binding DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order which will come into force if and when he falls into unconsciousness through lack of nutrition. Will the Canadian government permit a man (campaigning for refuges for male victims of domestic violence, and programmes to reduce the male suicide rate) to remain on a course slowly leading to his death, in front of a government building, with the progress being filmed and broadcast over the internet on a daily basis? So far, it looks as if the answer is a resounding ‘yes’.
