End of hunger strike to be celebrated with breakfast

After 60 days of a hunger strike for shelter, Conrad Barney ended his strike, and SLEEPS and Barney are having a breakfast-for-dinner event 4 to 8 pm Sunday, Feb. 24, at Eugene's park blocks (8th & Oak). It's free and open to the public, and donations will go toward the SLEEPS strike team. Barney says he ended the strike "in good faith for the promised workshops regarding zoning laws and code 4.81 [Eugene's camping ban]" and to prevent serious health problems.
