Three times in his life Mahatma Gandhi took a hunger strike to 21 days,
Today is day 21 for Nadiya Savchenko
Nadiya Savchenko, former first lieutenant of the Ukrainian Army and now a Member of Parliament of Ukraine, and the beloved heroine of Ukrainians across the planet, today marks her 21st day on hunger strike in a Russian prison. She has not been allowed to see her lawyer until January 12.
The details of her innocence have been written about many times.

Nadiya’s name translates as “Hope.”
RIGHT NOW is the time for every single one of us – that means all of you dear readers – to raise one hell of a big stink about this! We are trying to create a HUGE campaign of it and hope every media person who reads this, every bureaucrat and politician that reads us, and everyone else who reads us, will post to their twitters, Facebook pages, other social media, send to their politicians and newspapers and online media locally and nationally in whatever city and country you live in to put this into mainstream public awareness and not allow the Kremlin to sweep what they are doing to her under the carpet quietly.
On January 5th, @Glasnostgone is calling a twitter day of action to #FreeSavchenko. These are the instructions for the campaign:
Please gear up for this now and be prepared. Please start earlier if you can too. Please do something, don’t read this and do nothing.
If you want to send us anything to post we will review it for reposts.
This is URGENT. Thank you for your participation.
