"Long-Term Solitary Confinement = Torture!"
"Support California Prison Hunger Strikers and their 5 Demands"

People imprisoned at Pelican Bay State Prison in California have called for a Nationwide Hunger Strike to begin on July 8, 2013. They have also issued a call for unity among people from different racial groups, inside and outside the prisons. People who are locked down in segregation units of this society’s prisons, condemned as the “worst of the worst,” are standing up against unjust conditions amounting to torture, asserting their humanity in the process. We must amplify their voices with powerful support!

Stop Mass Incarceration Network is launching a nationwide campaign to support the just struggle of California Prisoners and their 5 demands, and end the torture of 80,000 prisoners in solitary confinement in U.S. prisons. We must act now with urgency - to change public opinion and organize mass political resistance so the prisoners' 5 demands are met and they are not forced to take the desperate step of going on hunger strike and putting their lives on the line!

Nationwide, on the Weekend of June 21, 22 and 23 there will be events in solidarity with the courageous California Prisoners. In the SF Bay Area also join us:

Saturday, June 22nd, Juneteenth Celebration 11am Nicholl Park on 31st & MacDonald in Richmond CA

Sunday, June 23rd, Take the Hunger Strike to the faith community for sermons, prayers and other events.
