Serbian Union Leader Cuts Off And Eats Own Finger

eat-the-poorTO Belgrade, Serbia, where Zoran Bulatovic, a Serbian union official, is highlighting his comrades struggle for food and wages by chopping off his finger and eating it.

Says Bulatovic:

“We, the workers, have nothing to eat. We had to seek some sort of alternative food and I gave them an example.”

To make the Bulatovic recipe, you’ll need a union leader at the Raska Holding textile factory in Novi Pazar in southwestern Serbia, a hacksaw and a little finger.

Bulatovic says he stepped in after his deputy, “a single mother of three, was the first to say she would cut off her finger. I could not allow her to do that.”

By way of background, the report issues an ironic aside:

About two dozen workers went on a 19-day hunger strike last year.

Eat the poor – feed them to the rich!
