Couldn't he go on a hunger strike for a month?

FOOD and Agriculture Organisation chief Jacques Diouf went on a 24-hour hunger strike on Saturday to put a spotlight on chronic malnutrition worldwide ahead of a UN summit on food security.
Mr Diouf began the hunger strike late Friday, sleeping at FAO headquarters in Rome on a makeshift mattress of foam blocs, the UN organisation said in a statement.
He called on 'people of goodwill everywhere' to join his hunger strike in solidarity with the one billion humans who suffer chronic malnutrition, the FAO said.
United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon will join the hunger strike on Sunday, it said.
