That's probably the most important point right there. They have the attention, but if they're cutting off services like this to prove a point, it's just going to annoy people.

The Hunger Strike fell apart rather fast, but they're still doing it anyways. Well, it's not an entire food strike for those involved, it's just a liquid-only diet. But anyways, convenience is the key to this one. They have a good reason for protesting, it's just that the government isn't really doing much right now. In fact, the media are giving them more attention and spreading their cause than the Government is giving them in talking and whatnot.
