Chubby Latino Activist To Shed Some Much Needed Weight!

Source: Azcentral
A Phoenix immigration reformist has staged a new platform to protest against the state’s mounting anti-immigration sentiment.

And his method of expression is likely to catch some attention.

Elias Bermudez, president of the Immigrants Without Borders group in Phoenix, is going on a hunger strike for seven days to express his frustration with state anti-immigration laws and deportations and push for a federal immigration reform.

He’s not alone. At least 18 others will begin fasting on Monday, setting up a site near El Portal restaurant in downtown Phoenix. They plan to have four motor homes, security guards and doctors on hand during the communal fast.

“We believe we have done what we need to do as far as marches are concerned,” he said. “We’re trying to approach this from a humane and spiritual part.”
The chubby activist could stand to shed a couple of pounds! The editors here at Freedom Folks can only hope the fat rat bastard in the yellow shirt will join in the "fast." And maybe do a little Atkins on the other end?

Have I ever mentioned how much I like it when criminals abuse spirituality to condone their law-breaking?
