    A little bit over ten minutes but a very powerful video on the great lengths people will go through to receive healthcare to survive. Very poignant position which is relevant today in the U.S.

    Injecting oneself with HIV seems a strange way to protest.

    There's been people who would commit petty crimes just to get arrested so they could get healthcare in jail, or allowing themselves to get HIV so they could get housing in New York. It's survival, in a very cynical way. Sad.
