from Guantanamo to Pelican Bay,

long-term solitary confinement = torture 

People imprisoned at Pelican Bay State Prison in California have called for a Nationwide Hunger Strike to begin on July 8, 2013. They have also issued a call for unity among people from different racial groups, inside and outside the prisons. People who are locked down in segregation units of this society's prisons, condemned as the "worst of the worst," are standing up against unjust conditions amounting to torture, asserting their humanity in the process. 


Stop Mass Incarceration Network is launching the campaign to support the just struggle of California Prisoners and their 5 demands, and end the torture of 80,000 prisoners in solitary confinement in U.S. prisons. We must act now with urgency - to change public opinion and organize mass political resistance so the prisoners are not forced to take the desperate step of going on hunger strike and putting their lives on the line.
