Last week, over 300 women united together in a “crossed legs strike,” withholding sex from their partners until the road conditions in their town were improved.

After some initial frustration, men have decided to facilitate the protest against the corrupt local government by taking to their central park on Saturday to stage a hunger strike.

“[Men] have come together with women with a hunger strike. This is not improvised, this is a process that began a year ago to reclaim respect for human rights and gender advocacy,” a local Circuit court judge said.

The road is a major cause for concern, as it is the only way in and out of the town.
