Deep gratitude to our readers’ theater sources:

♥ If the SHU Fits: Voices from Solitary Confinement, Reader's Theatre compiled by Melvin Ishmael Johnson and Andy Griggs (iftheshufits.net)

End sleep deprivation torture of people in CA solitary units.

Supposedly to prevent suicide, guards are doing “security/welfare checks,” awakening people in isolation units throughout California prisons every 30 minutes night and day. (In Pelican Bay State Prison, people are now awakened every 60 minutes at night.) This has no security interest. It is torture. People need compassionate care, rehabilitation, and restorative justice, not torture.

Take Action

 Write a letter to END SLEEP DEPRIVATION TORTURE of people in CA solitary units: prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com, see the “Take Action” sidebar: “Security/Welfare Checks”
 Promote the AGREEMENT TO END HOSTILITIES (English & Spanish),
