    Default Whores Sew Their Lips Together (No, Not To Each Other) In Protest...

    Man, this sucks on so many levels...then again, one would imagine that "sucking" would be technically impossible...

    Prostitutes sew lips together in protest

    2 hours, 9 minutes ago

    LA PAZ (Reuters) - Prostitutes in the Bolivian city of El Alto sewed their lips together Wednesday as part of a hunger strike to demand that the mayor reopen brothels and bars ordered closed after violent protests by residents last week.

    "We are fighting for the right to work and for our families' survival," Lily Cortez, leader of the El Alto Association of Nighttime Workers, told local television.

    "Tomorrow we will bury ourselves alive if we are not immediately heard. The mayor will have his conscience to answer to if there are any grave consequences, such as the death of my comrades," she said, surrounded by about 10 prostitutes who had sewn their lips together with thread.

    Some 30 other women were shown fasting inside a medical clinic nearby.

    Mayor Fanor Nava told local radio he would not reopen the brothels and bars closed after city residents fed up with underage drinking and crime stormed the red-light district in El Alto, an impoverished city just north of La Paz.

    Prostitution in Bolivia is legal but pimping is outlawed.

    Student activists who want the bars and brothels permanently shut down were also on a hunger strike, along with the leaders of an association representing bars, restaurants and karaoke establishments.

    "It's not only us owners and the sex workers who are affected, there are thousands of waiters, cooks, bartenders, taxi drivers and street vendors who will be without income," said Ramiro Orellana, spokesman for the business group.

    El Alto is one of the largest urban areas in Bolivia, with nearly 1 million inhabitants, mostly Aymara and Quechua Indians.

    If they are taking suppositories for survival, would that not be "shitting where one eats"?

    You just gotta love the line:

    "Prostitution in Bolivia is legal but pimping is outlawed."

    Man, Pimpin' ain't easy.

    We wouldn't want to PIMP anyone. I guess it's "protection" for the ladies. Just reading that sentence gives the impression that prostitution is great, but God forbid pimping to exist.

    What a crack up.

    God Damn! LOL. People are so fucking stupid sometimes. I do love the protester type. They have no clue as to how the real world works yet they sew their lips together to bring "more awareness" to the cause. Fucking stupid. Out.

    I would just love to see the minutes from the emergency meeting of the El Alto Association of Nighttime Workers where this was decided.

    "We've got to stand up for our rights!"
    "YEAH!!
    "We've got to show them we mean business!"
    "YEAH!!!"
    "We're going to bring these bastards to their knees!"
    "YEAH!!!!"
    "We're going to have a protest they'll never forget!"
    "YEAH!!!!!"
    "We're going to sew our lips together until we starve to death!"
    "...Uh...what?"
