Protester of the day

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Setting yourself on fire is so yesterday. Serb cuts off, eats finger in wage protest:
The state-owned Raska Holding textile factory in southwestern Serbia used to be a major producer that employed 4,000. Today, it has just 100 workers, some of whom have not been paid — for years.

To dramatize their plight, a union official Friday used a hacksaw to cut off most of the pinky on his left hand. Rather than give his bosses the finger he ate it.

"We, the workers, have nothing to eat. We had to seek some sort of alternative food and I gave them an example," Zoran Bulatovic told Reuters today. "It hurt like hell."
