Organizer/AuthorAli Oakbaba
On July 8th 30,000 prisoners went on a hunger strike to bring attention to the inhumane conditions & torture of people locked up for 5, 10, 15 and in one person's case 42 years in solitary confinement for 23 hours per day in a 11' x 7' cell. The cells are concrete coffins with only enough room to pace for 3 steps. The only human contact for most in these special housing units (SHU) is when they are being handcuffed by CDCR guards.

After a Federal judge ruled that CDCR can force feed prisoners the Prisoners decided to suspend the strike, Not end it.

The Prisoners have 5 demands:
1) Eliminate group punishment & administrative abuse.
2) Abolish the debriefing policy & modify active/inactive gang status criteria.
3) Comply with the recommendations of the US Commission on Safety and Abuse in America's Prisons recommendations and END LONG-TERM SOLITARY CONFINEMENT.
4) Provide adequate and nutritious food.
5) Create and expand constructive programming.

THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES.....Pick Up The Baton!
