EMERGENCY! Dangerous Situation! One month on Hunger Strike… Support the Courageous CA Prison Hunger Strikers 30,000 California prisoners went on hunger strike July 8 to end the torture of solitary confinement and for their basic rights and humanity. Hundreds of prisoners have now gone 26 days without food. Thousands more support the struggle. But Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Dept. of Corrections refuse to meet their just demands and are retaliating against hunger strikers. One hunger striker, Billy ‘Guero’ Sell, has already died. Amnesty International says California prisons are an "affront to human rights." This is an EMERGENCY. Many more people need to stand NOW with the prisoner hunger strikers! Demonstrate!
