Michele Darr is in the same spot she has been for the past eleven days; camping and on hunger strike at the steps of governor Ted Kulongoski’s office in salem.   She wants a meeting with the governor and a chance to dissuade him from sending oregon's National Guard to serve in Iraq.  Michele is dismayed with the deployment and with the Bush Administration's “Stop Loss” policy which involuntarily extends a service member's active duty.
