40. I Know -- I Mean My Issue with It
is not so much with the mechanism of a hunger strike. It just seems like a tool for very specific goals like political prisoner release.

Let's say the hunger strike has the intended effect, and Bloomberg or Cuomo feels pressured enough to give in. Given the sweeping nature of the protesters' concerns, what is it that they do that would satify the demands of the hunger strikers?
