Ethel Kennedy Joins Hunger Strike to Protest Trump’s Immigration Policies
Robert F. Kennedy’s 90-year-old widow Ethel Kennedy has joined a hunger strike to protest the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policies and the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The collective fast, organized by Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and several other activist groups, started on Saturday and will last for 24 days in honor of the estimated 2,400 children that have been separated from their parents.
In a statement, Ethel Kennedy wrote, “Generations of Americans did not toil and sacrifice to build a country where children and their parents are placed in cages to advance a cynical political agenda.” Nearly 50 other Kennedy family members will be joining her in the fast.
