Please Donate to Support our Solidarity Work for the Upcoming Hunger Strike

ImageOn July 13, 2013 the coalition of organizations working in solidarity with the protesters is planning a state-wide mobilization to Corcoran State Prison, which isolates over 1,600 people in solitary confinement. We must take this movement to the prison gates and show Jerry Brown and the Department of Corrections that we support the prisoners and demand that Jerry Brown meet with the representatives immediately to negotiate the end of the strike.

 We need your support now more than ever!  Please consider making a donation to our coalition so that we can continue to fight for the human rights of people in extreme isolation in California prisons.  Donations can be made online at www.prisons.org.

And please continue reading for information on other ways to support the July 13th Mobilization.

Thank you for supporting our coalition! Its hard to believe that its been almost two years since thousands of courageous people in California’s prisons engaged in a peaceful hunger strike to demand basic human rights. While we’ve made some progress in this struggle, there is much work left to be done as none of the 5 Core Demands has been fully met. Please consider donating to our coalition so that we are able to continue this important work.

Upcoming Hunger Strike

On July 8, 2013 Prisoners at Pelican Bay and other prisons will resume their hunger strike and begin work stoppages unless the California Governor Jerry Brown and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation take decisive action to meet their demands.
