March f/ Prison Hunger Strikers Mon. 7/25 (in CA)

Bay Area rides to Sacramento, California action... Fri, July 22, 2011 5:55:42 PM Subject:
MONDAY: The strike continues! Mobilize to CDCR!

As many of you have heard, the Short Corridor Collective at Pelican
Bay have ended their hunger strike and have declared it a success!
Their courageous act of refusing to eat for 4 weeks has successfully
put the issues of torturous isolation units and California's
abominable debriefing program in the international & national media,
it has boosted a growing movement for the rights of prisoners, and is
unifying prisoners of different racial groups for a struggle against
their real and shared enemies: the unfair policies and practices of CDCR.

Many of you also know that the hunger strike continues in Tehachapi,
Corcoran, and Calipatria State Prisons.

We must continue to put pressure on CDCR and Governor Jerry Brown!

On Monday, 7/25 from noon-4pm in Sacramento, family members,
community based organizations, and community members from around the
state are mobilizing to support the ongoing California Prisoner Hunger Strike!

Meet in Sacramento at Fremont Park (on 15th St., b/w Q & P Streets) @ 11:30am.
March to CDCR headquarters (1515 S. Street) and rally from noon-2pm.
March to State Building to deliver organizational letter to Governor
Jerry Brown's office from 2-4pm.
*Please note that this will be a PEACEFUL, non-arrestable action.

Please take the time to forward this email to all of your contacts,
and continue to call CDCR and Governor Brown demanding more humane
treatment of prisoners across California.

For more information, please check the Prisoner Hunger Strike
Solidarity Blog or call (510) 444-0484.
