Indian social activist Anna Hazare breaks his fast with a glass of juice offered by a child at the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) recreation ground in Mumbai on December 28, 2011. Indian anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare called off his latest hunger strike December 28 but signaled he would step up his political efforts to turn voters against the ruling party and government. Hazare began his fast December 27 to demand that the government pass a strong new anti-graft law that would create a powerful ombudsman tasked with identifying and prosecuting corrupt public officials.
