Ly Tong On His 8th Day of Hunger Strike

According to a visit yesterday by 3 members of Vietnamese-American media and City Councilmember Kansen Chu,  Ly To has lost 27 lbs and is continue to be on his hunger strike since last Friday.   The visit was arranged by Santa Clara County Sheriff Laura Smith.  

The Mercury News reported incorrectly last week that Ly Tong ended his hunger strike.
