Description: Photo of five men camped out on blankets in a parking lot (?). They all have long hair and tattered clothes. One man has a thick, long beard. One man shows only his back as he is bent in half doing yoga. A Volkswagon bus at the back of the photo is painted in camoflage and has a white star painted on its door. Photo caption reads: Second Day Starvation Scene: While one hunger anti-population protestor practiced his yoga, another gnawed his thumb today in the second day of the Hunger Show at Hayward. The week-long starve-in is aimed at dramatizing man's future in an overpopulated, underfed world.
