Support the Hunger Strikers!
Please bring signs urging the Department of Corrections to stop torture.
On July 1st, prisoners in the Security Housing Unit at Pelican Bay State Prison began a hunger strike in an effort to end the cruel, inhumane and tortuous conditions of their imprisonment. Since that time, the strike has been joined by thousands of other prisoners across the state. Almost three weeks into the strike, the medical condition of many prisoners is reaching a critical state. Our support from outside the walls is imperative.
Join us on July 21st!
