Posted by dmitch on March 17, 2008

The Injustice Must End (TIME) committee has called for a week long fast in Support of Efren Paredes, Jr., the over 300 Michigan prisoners, and the 2,000 other juveniles across the country sentenced as juveniles to mandatory life without parole. The Fast is taking place from Sunday, March 16th 2008 to Saturday, March 22nd 2008. To find out more about Efren’s Case and his work around Ending life sentences for juveniles, go to

Because there are so many fast participants in the Lansing area, Fasters will be gathering every night from Monday March 17th through Saturday March 22nd, 6-8pm. This will be a time to check in, support each other and post to the international blog in support of Efren Paredes, Jr. NorthStar is honored to host these nightly meetings and our thoughts are with all of the Fasters, with Efren & with all Juveniles sentenced to Life in prison.
