Rally in Sacramento and Legislative Hearing on the CA Prison System re: the Pelican Bay Hunger Strike
Prisoners throughout the California prison system report that the hunger strike is only suspended, not ended. Please join us in Sacramento next Tuesday, August 23, to support the human rights demands of the Pelican Bay Hunger Strikers.
Public pressure has resulted in a legislative hearing before the Assembly Public Safety Committee on conditions in California state prison Security Housing Units (SHU). The Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition is mobilizing statewide to pack the hearing room and guarantee that prisoners and their families will be heard.
Carpools will leave the Bay Area from West Oakland BART at two times:
7:30am for people who want to participate in legislative visits
9:30am to attend the rally and public hearing
For more information call Manuel at 415.637.8195 or Linda at 510.219.0297, or go to the website of the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition.
We'll see you in Sacramento! Thank you for your support.
