Hunger Strikes

Postby Delanshar » Fri Apr 20, 2012 12:15 pm

How does your nation respond to people who go on hunger strike?

In Delanshar, they are arrested and thrown in jail. Once in a cell they are allowed no contact with media, family or anyone, and then they are given no food until they die. In other words: they get their wish, but nobody is allowed to see it. Their death certificate will read that they committed suicide, which in a sense is true.

That is rather stupid and a waste really.

I'm sure they can all exist without brownies because other pastries exist and the dessert may just go by another name in those countries. The fudgey dessert must be your favorite if you get so antsy when no one knows what a brownie is. So please, calm down and go order a box of supreme fudge chocolate chip brownies from your local 9 and i convenience store; I understand they now deliver baked goods.

We consider their protest as we would any other. If they choose that route, the consequences are entirely on them if we deem it unworthy of our time or consideration.

Hunger strike?

They already don't eat.

As long as they are not breaking any laws so would we ignore them, it is not like those sort of strikes lasts longer than a month at most anyway.

Hunger striking means you aren't working and you cause disturbance. Both these acts are damaging to the nation, and are therefore judged as treason. But since we are so very good and kind, we'll lock them in the pillory and give them all the fruits and vegetables they can eat.

Hunger Strikes as a political or social protest would be treated as treason against the king. The culprit, and his friends and family will all be rounded up and sent to our mountain labor camps were they will work until dead. If that proves to time consuming they will simply be shot by the RSD (Royal Security Directorate "aka Secret Police").

Well, considering that I am a post-apocalyptic nation, going on a Hunger Strike is rather stupid and inneffective, because nobody eats enough to begin with.

We set up a Pizza Hut truck in front of them, then fan the delicious odor of fresh pizza all over the area.

If that doesn't work, we bring in the big guns; Subway.

If that fails, we disperse the protesters by blasting rocky road ice creme from Baskin Robins at them.

They get nothing from it and no response until they fill out an official form*, if they die the death listed as suicide.
*Note, this isn't a fancy way to tell them "Screw you". Forms are read, and if enough of them with similar subjects are sent Caligula will be informed and generally act on it. Also, it isn't hard it is a subject line, name, address and body. Not that tough.

In other words, we don't treat it as a protest OR treason. We treat it as a temper tantrum.
