Steve Blake, president of R-KIDS of Minnesota, was arrested on December 23, 2000, and is being held in a Ramsey Adult Detention Center on a warrant from Winona County for failure to pay child support.

This, despite the fact that Steve has paid $750.00 a month in support ever since the state illegally dragged him from his home in April of 1995.

To protest this continuing violation of his rights, Steve has been on a hunger strike ever since he was unjustly and illegally incarcerated.
