Autism Hunger Strike

 

Bruce McIntosh

At 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 4, Stephan Marinoiu stopped eating and began a hunger strike for autism services in Ontario.

Stephan Marinoiu is the father of Simon, a 15-year-old boy who has autism. In February, Stephan walked from Toronto to Ottawa through two of the worst snowstorms of the season to bring the issue of autism to the attention of the federal government. Now, Stephan is taking his fight to Queen’s Park.

He has told us that he would be grateful for anyone who can take time to visit and stay with him for however long they are able.

Hi Bruce McIntosh, welcome to babble.

Just so you know, the rabble news feature forum is about news items from rabble's main page. I'm going to close this thread in this forum and move it to "National News" although it could just as easily go in "Body and Soul" or "activism". Anyone who wishes to post to this thread can continue from there.
