Fasting can mean as little as 12 to 24 hours, skipping a meal, or going 40 or more days without eating. Brief, diverse, top-of-the-hour remarks, music, readings and more.

The Fast For Peace began in Washington D.C. on July 4, with Dick Gregory, Bob Edgar, Willie Nelson, Danny Glover, Arun Gandhi, Daniel Ellsberg, Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, Alice Walker, Cindy Sheehan and hundreds of others.
