Event Description

Hi. I’m Tom.

You’d never guess that such an unkempt man would work for an independent non-governmental organisation and charity dedicated to promoting human rights in Libya. We’re called Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) and not to ring my own bell or anything but we are pretty neat. You should check us out.

As several of my co-workers and vast majority of Libya are Muslim, it seemed right to extend the gesture of solidarity this year and join in with their fast. This means no eating, drinking, smoking, or swearing between dawn (around 03.00) and sunset (around 21.30) for a month.

   It won’t be fun at all.

 

 

 

So what I am asking you is to be really kind and awesome and to support me in this rather foolhardy endeavour. It’s a win/win situation for you really. If you are kind and pure hearted, you’ll be doing a great thing by helping out a group like LFJL. If you are a sadist and want to watch me suffer over a prolonged period you’ll be ensuring that. There really is something for everyone here.

If you’re interested, you can donate directly to LFJL above!  I’ll be updating my blog, "Fasting for Human Rights" regularly with my experiences, so stay tuned!

 

Thanks so much to everyone. Ramadan Kareem!
