Hunger Strike An option for nonviolent resistence

Hunger Strikes are prolonged refusals to eat, which are carried out as a protest, typically by a prisoner or an oppressed person or a group of people.

Peter De Lissovoy and several other non-violent activists went on Hunger Strike in Albany, GA after being arrested for "mixing" - being white at a black night club.

Caesar Chavez protested for worker's rights on farms in California. He also used hunger strikes to achieve his goals.
