pierced and hung by hooksA Mexican man hung himself by hooks from a tree to protest against discrimination against tattooed and pierced people.

It was part of a wider anti-discrimination demonstration in Mexico City, and the group staged the protest in the city centre where they stripped off to show off their [tag]tattoos[/tag] and [tag]piercings[/tag].

The man, who did not reveal his identity, hung himself from hooks tied to a wooden frame suspended from a tree. His personal protest attracted a crowd and shocked passers-by but he was not hurt. Dante Salomo, one of the organisers of the protest, said: “In Mexico a tattooed person is the victim of all kinds of discrimination, they don’t get good jobs and are mistreated everywhere.”

(Wow — here in America all you need to be is Mexican to get that kind of treatment.)
