End solitary confinement and sleep deprivation torture, the Prison Industrial Complex, mass incarceration, mass criminalization, and crimmigration.

Join us on the 23rd of every month to end solitary confinement (for the 23+ hours a day people in solitary are in their cells). The U.N. prohibits over 15 consecutive days in solitary confinement.

12:30-2 pm, Friday June 23, 2017, Sunday July 23, and 23rd of every month

Raquel Estrada will speak. Her husband is one of at least 39 men who went on Hunger Strike on May 25 at Old Folsom State Prison Administrative Segregation Unit (solitary) in Represa, CA.

Tell officials: Meet their human rights demands. Do not retaliate against them.

End sleep deprivation torture of people in CA solitary units

Ordered to “prevent suicide,” guards doing “security/welfare checks” jar people awake
every 30 minutes night and day in isolation units throughout California prisons.

Sleep deprivation increases the risk of suicide and causes extreme mental and physical harm. This is torture.

People need compassionate care, rehabilitation, and restorative justice, not the torture of solitary confinement and sleep deprivation.
