DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OHIO ROCKS WITH A FLYING VISIT FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA AND PROTESTERS ON THE TENTH DAY (Wednesday, March 18, 2015) OF HUNGER STRIKE! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
PRESIDENT OBAMA:
President Obama arrived in Cleveland, Ohio on a Flying Visit 
(4-hours) on Wednesday, March 18, 2015. 
 
He spoke at a City Club meeting held at the Global Center for 
Health Innovation in addition to a few other engagements.
 
Protesters waited patiently behind the barricades on St. Clair Avenue, opposite the Global Center for Health Innovation. 
 
President Obama arrived and left without any sighting. 
 
 
 
 
 
PROTESTERS:
The protesters included opponents of the XL Pipeline, supporters of Ukraine, others, and also the LEAVE PUBLIC SQUARE ALONE AND HUNGER STRIKE TO STOP CORRUPTION IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE PROJECT campaign.
 
LEAVE PUBLIC SQUARE ALONE!
DON’T CLOSE ONTARIO STREET!
DON’T NARROW SUPERIOR AVENUE!
DON’T MESS UP THE TRAFFIC!
 
The campaign continues to demonstrate. 
 
I have been actively opposing the proposed $32 million radical makeover for the past eight months. So far there have been 260 hours of demonstrations which is the equivalent of walking nearly 800 miles carrying a sign. The LEAVE PUBLIC SQUARE ALONE signs have been seen by thousands
 
HUNGER STRIKE:
*The Hunger Strike which started at 12:01 a.m. on March 9, 2015 is to protest corruption in the Public Square Project. For details on the project and the reasons for the protest, see the post on REALNEO dated March 9, 2015 and titled: 3-HR. DEMONSTRATION ROCKS CLOSED PUBLIC SQUARE ON THE FIRST DAY OF HUNGER STRIKE.
 
*This will be my second Hunger Strike fighting corruption in the Administration of Mayor Frank G. Jackson of Cleveland, Ohio. The first one lasted 21-days. I am a 73-year old Sikh American.
 
*So far I have lost twelve pounds. I drink lots of water. The body is getting energy from the stored fat. I move around slowly to conserve my energy.
