Write to the Strike Leaders! Prisoner
Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition

In addition to all
the other ways people can support the hunger
strike, it's important for us to write letters of
support to the strike leaders and everyone we
know locked up in prison, so they know thousands
of people outside prison support them and are
working with them to win their demands.
