Prisoners in the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay State Prison (PBSP) are resuming their heroic hunger strike on Monday, September 26th. They are demanding to be treated as human beings; to end barbaric conditions of imprisonment, and to end long term solitary confinement - a form of torture.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is not only refusing to meet the prisoners demands, it is retaliating against hunger strikers and mounting a public relations campaign to defend the conditions of torture in the SHU.

We have a moral responsibility to stand with the prisoners and their just demands. Determined mass support outside the prison walls is urgently needed.
