Prisoners at the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay have gone on an indefinite hunger strike to protest the tortuous and inhumane conditions of their imprisonment.
Around the world, supporters inside and outside of prisons have come together to show their support for the hunger strikers. At least 6,600 prisoners in at least 13 prisons throughout CA have joined the hunger strike for varying lengths of time in solidarity with the prisoners at Pelican Bay and their demands.
