Fish broth has been cast by the mainstream media as “the cheat”. Upon learning Chief Spence was drinking tea and fish broth coverage shifted from framing her action as a “hunger strike” to a “liquid diet”, as if 32 days without food is easy. As if a liquid diet doesn’t take a substantial physical, mental and emotional toll or substantial physical, mental and emotional strength to accomplish. Of course this characterization comes from a place of enormous unchecked privilege and a position of wealth. It comes from not having to fight for one’s physical survival because of the weight of crushing poverty. It comes from always having other options.
This is not where Indigenous Peoples come from.
I dare anyone who’s denigrated Chief Spence in the press to spend a month with nothing but fish broth.
I wonder how long Tiny Hands Levant would last. I wonder if he could produce so much froth after a month with nothing but fish broth.
