''I'm holding out pretty well,'' says Michael Lee, TV producer/director who entered his fourth week of a hunger strike against the ''callous SABC'' (check my earlier posts).
''I'm beginning to get hungry finally. For the first time since the first couple of days, I don't really feel so lekker. But I'm still going.
You might not know it, but Michael - who has lost 11kg's already - is the treasurer for the The South African Screen Federation (Sasfed).
If you're wondering, this is what Sasfed has to say:
''SASFED does not formally approve of Mr. Lee's hunger strike past 21 days for safety reasons. We feel it most unfortunate that Mr. Lee has found it necessary to continue in his protest, a clear sign of the desperation of our industry's current situation. SASFED will continue to offer any support it can to Mr. Lee and others joining this protest, but will continue to insist he and any others have sufficient medical supervision.''
