Okhwan Yoon. Photo taken on day 34 of his hunger strike

Okhwan Yoon has now been on hunger strike at Parliament square for 37 days. On Monday a Minister from the Methodist Central Hall came to visit him and offer comfort. They have been trying to contact a Korean speaking Minister but have had difficulty in doing so, due to the August holiday period, when so many people are away or are uncontactable.

It is similar to the Tamil Protest and hunger strike in 2009 when the Government was on holiday and it was impossible to contact anyone in an official capacity.
