Monday November 16th, Lily Aramburo's 26th birthday marked the start of a Justice for Lily Hunger Strike in downtown Miami, Florida.
We hung up banners and put up a multitude of signs at Government Center passing out flyers and engaging the community all week long. Most of everyone we spoke to was supportive of our efforts. Many shared their personal stories and offered encouraging words and prayers, including a Buddhist monk who prayed with us. I made sure to update everyone as much as I could via Twitter.
Early Monday morning, Lucely went on the Enrique Santos radio show. They've been an enormous help in our search for answers. We love their show and appreciate all their support. Take a listen here:
Univision's Primer Impacto came over after hearing Lucely on the radio. Watch the video below:
Telemundo was kind enough to cover our hunger strike, as well. (video posted below) We also had NBC6 and WSVN7 take footage Monday afternoon but the segments have not aired (that I'm aware of).
Private Investigator Joe Carrillo went on the Enrique Santos Show on Friday morning, the last day of our 5 day fast. He gave a great interview on the radio which lasted about 15 minutes. Joe offers his insight into his investigation of Lily's case.

Miami Dade Police detectives called Joe and set up a meeting, which already took place on Tuesday November 24, 2009. I'm pleased that there is dialog between Joe and Miami Dade Police command staff. But the fight for justice continues.
