Support the California prison protesters!

On 8 July, 30,000 prisoners in California began a hunger strike and work stoppage in protest against the inhumane prison regime and excessive use of solitary confinement. FRFI salutes their struggle and encourages our readers and supporters to send solidarity messages to the prisoners.

Daily updates on the protest and on national and international solidarity can be found at: prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com and solitarywatch.com
