Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library

The good, the bad and the ugly:
updates from the Prisoners' Hunger Strike Solidarity.

As a result of the 2011 and 2013 hunger strikes in California prisons the use of indefinite solitary confinement by California Department of Corrections has come to an end. That is the good news. Of course, the struggle by prisoners does not end with this victory.
Carol Strickman, one of the lawyers in the case that was won, will give an update on the state of the victory—reduction in prisoners placed in the Security Housing—as well as the state of the current conditions as well as the ugly torture newly practiced on all prisoners in isolation: sleep deprivation.
Urszula Wislanka will focus on the new forms the struggle of the prisoners is now taking: "Prisoners’ Human Rights Movement Blueprint.”

Sunday, April 24, 2016 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
6501 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland (just North of Alcatraz Ave.)
