Hunger striker ready to die for cause

A FORMER crane operator for US Steel Košice (USSK) is camped outside the Cabinet Office in Bratislava on a hunger strike. Zuzana Cingeľová is protesting USSK's alleged "violations of employee rights and principles of workplace safety".

Cingeľová went on strike June 2 against USSK. The company fired her one week later. Cingeľová said that she is prepared to die for her cause.

The hunger strike started after Cingeľová's 550 km protest march from Košice to Bratislava. She has expanded her protest to include the unfair treatment of socially disadvantaged people in the country.

According to the private news agency SITA, Cingeľová missed her mother's funeral on September 6 to maintain her vigil.
