Prisoners Hunger Strike News

Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity is reporting that the strike has been suspended at Pelican Bay, but continuing elsewhere. 

For the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) talk is cheap, but as Carol Strickman, a lawyer with Legal Services for Prisoners with Children says, "the proof is in the pudding."

"When it comes to America's domestic prison system, no one in a position of authority wants to use the word "torture", but I defy anyone whose heart is not made of stone to argue that total solitary confinement - for years and even decades - with no contact allowed with other human beings, and in cells with no natural light, is not torture. -- Andy Worthington
