Continuing with Sanskrit based suggestions (after bahuvrihi) we have dharna (from the Freedictionary):
n. A fast conducted at the door of an offender, especially a debtor, in India as a means of obtaining compliance with a demand for justice, such as payment of a debt.
Etymology: Hindi dharn, from Prakrit dharaa, from Sanskrit dharaam, act of supporting, stay; see dher- in Indo-European roots.
