*CDCR: Stop the torture!

*CDCR: Meet the 5 demands!

********************************************

As of July 8, 2013, more than 30,000 California prisoners initiated an indefinite hunger strike. They are calling on the Governor and the CDCR to meet their 5 core demands.

As of August 22, 2013, a federal judge approved the request from California and federal officials to force feed inmates if necessary, . As stated in prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com: "This is about dehumanizing the strikers, delegitimizing their demands, and disrupting the widespread support for the protest coming from the community"

Join PSL and rally in solidarity with the hunger strikers and protesting the force feeding approval.

The protest will be in front of the Sacramento County Jail at 651 I Street Sacramento, CA 95814 from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm
