    LA PAZ (Reuters) - Prostitutes in the Bolivian city of El Alto sewed their lips together on 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.

    When they return to work, business will be slow until the stitches heal.

    Those 11 prostitutes will be missed, I'm sure. What a bunch of fucking loons.

    Yeah, but what if I told you they were 11 of the top 25 prostitutes in Bolivia?

    This spokeswoman has no dedication. If she had some she wouldn't be able comment, unless she wrote or they translated her "mmmmms" and "hmmms."

    Well, they sewed their lips together?
    To really make the point, should have broken their kneecaps, too.

    The way this year has been going, they would probably have been knocked out of the top 25 in the next couple weeks anyway...
