A quiet but very hot day, 90 degrees plus, in downtown Denver on Saturday at Lincoln Park. But just down the street at 9th and Broadway at the Obama Campaign headquarters things were heating up. On a hunger strike since Tuesday two young people were confronting the issue of "illegal aliens" by asking for an executive order "prohibiting the deportation of undocumented youth" like themselves. As one person pointed out - it is slightly ironical that Obama himself is being portrayed by the wacko right wing as being an alien, himself.

The campaign headquarters was locked or "closed" for the week and the workers inside apparently were not going to call the police to get the young people out. According to "Westword" a local newspaper, tensions were starting to run higher between the sit in and staffers.

While we were there the supporters outside encouraged us to talk through the crack in the door and we expressed our support to Veronica, one of the hunger strikers.

It was certainly encouraging to see dedicated young people putting their lives on the line for a principle that should be shared by everyone.

A few photos - Enjoy!

Note the supporting posters from the campaign! Irony?
