Well, while it sounds like a good idea in theory.. I'm with Burdmann on this one:
I fail to see any logic to a hunger strike, even for this cause.
Is there a shortage of hungry people here in the US? Frankly, I thought that there are plenty of citizens who are under-fed due rising food costs,
(money/diet) to crappy non-nourishing fast food eateries that we frequent, (convenience/money/diet) and there are probably many more examples, end
result: People here are still hungry, nothing changes.
The economy is bad enough here, some people are probably weighing that 1.75 gallon of gas to get to work with their next meal in the drive through,
and that my friends is a sad thing to say but probably not too far from the truth.
Don't get me wrong, I think some sort of peaceful protest could possibly go a long way to making a point, and I would be in agreement with something
peaceful but as said.. unless there was a stadium of starving masses broadcast live on television, it would be just that... starving masses. Doing a
pretty good job without them, methinks.
But, if ya wanna, FYI it is known that the human body can survive for a week or so without food (depending on health and other variables) and I'm
hungry for change too... I just don't see it working in this context this day and age.
