Mon Jul 25 2011 (Updated 07/29/11) "Solidarity With The Prisoners. SHU = State-Sanctioned Torture!"
Prisoners' Hunger Strike Solidarity March in Santa Cruz On July 23rd, about twenty people rallied and marched in downtown Santa Cruz in solidarity with prisoners at Pelican Bay who have ended their hunger strike and declared it a success. Their act of refusing to eat for four weeks has put the issues of torturous isolation units and California's debriefing program in the international and national media, boosted a growing movement for the rights of prisoners, and is unifying prisoners of different racial groups for a struggle against their real and shared enemies: the unfair policies and practices of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

The hunger strike at Pelican Bay began on July 1st, quickly spread to prisons across California, and continues at Tehachapi, Corcoran, and Calipatria State Prisons.
