Pretty powerful since they're showing they actually mean business, not just running their mouths off.
There's something to be said about the fact that they willingly chose to do this.
I'm sure those people wouldn't be happy if their hunger strikes were imposed by the government or by circumstance. They'd be trying to eat. Often times, people only tolerate such things if they willingly put themselves to it. I get your point of course, but the vast majority of people are as Bob describes. It's never called a hunger strike when there isn't food to eat in the first place.
