Prisoner hunger strike resumes!

Toronto Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) supported the participants of the California hunger strike in July, and we will continue to do so. Help us pressure the administration to meet their demands for better conditions.

A vegan dinner will be provided, courtesy of Food Not Bombs.

Hope to see you there!

  • Prisoners in Pelican Bay SHU are locked in windowless cells for at
    least 22hrs every day with a perforated steel door and concrete walls.
  • 6,600 prisoners in 13 prisons across CA participated in solidarity with their fellow inmates from the Pelican Bay Security Housing Unit (SHU) for 3 painful weeks.
  • Administrators of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) have failed to meet the five core demands.

“This is far from over…and once again, hopefully for the last time, we will be risking our lives via a peaceful hunger strike on September 26, 2011 to force positive changes.”
