The hunger strike will last a week, per Campus Reform:

Clemson University professors Chenjerai Kumanyika and Todd May announced a week-long hunger strike Friday to protest President Trump’s Executive Order on immigration.

Beginning Monday at Sikes Hall, The Fast Against Silence aims to pressure the Clemson University administration into publicly denouncing the order.

“By fasting Professors Kumanyika and May would like also to express solidarity with those, for instance in Syria, who will be forced to go hungry because they will not be accepted as refugees into the United States,” Kumanyika explained in a press release on Facebook.
