Capt. James Pietrangelo’s and Lt. Dan Choi’s DADT Hunger Strike Now In Fifth Day (Video)

Five days ago on at 10:30pm Thursday night,  in Northwest Washington D.C., Lt. Daniel Choi and Captain Jim Pietrangelo began a hunger strike in response to the  ultra lame “compromise” plan to repeal DADT. 

So while our Gay Orgs issue press releases “prasing” this totally ridiculous “non-repeal” and the White House spins it into a monumental feat that they are doing for the LGBT Community Pietrangelo and Choi are standing up and  making a statement.

Dan Choi: “I hope that people will remember in future generations that somebody did stand up uncompromisingly in 2010.”

Best of luck Jim and Dan.
