Siriusly?

"Sirius kills Korean women workers"?

For 1,160 days, the women have continued their strike in front of the factory gates. The head of the local union at the Kiryung factory went on a hunger strike for 94 days before being hospitalized in mid-September. The situation has reached a crisis, which is why the workers have come toNew York to press Sirius Satelite Radio to intervene.

When you're on a hunger strike, you can't blame the people you are protesting if you should die. That is your voluntary choice of protest. Now, if something they do at the workplace causes your death, then this sign wouldn't be as misleading.

Bottom line is, let's hope things work out well.
