Agreement to End Hostilities

Representatives of the CA Hunger Strike issued a statement calling for an end to all violence and hostility between different groups of prisoners throughout the state of CA from maximum security prisons to county jails. The statement asks prisoners to unite beginning October 10th, 2012.

In their statement sent to Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity, the representatives explain:

We can no longer allow CDCR to use us against each
other for their benefit!! Because the reality is that collectively, we are an empowered, mighty force, that can positively change this entire corrupt system into a system that actually benefits prisoners, and thereby, the public as a whole… and we simply cannot allow CDCR/CCPOA – Prison Guard’s Union, IGI, ISU, OCS, and SSU, to continue to get away with their constant form of progressive oppression and warehousing of tens of thousands of prisoners, including the 14,000 (+) plus prisoners held in solitary confinement torture chambers [i.e. SHU/Ad-Seg Units] for decades!!!

  10. My husband spent 30+ yrs bombined in segregation. He told horrific stories of what went on in these human warehouses. The worst part was how the C.O’s just did what they wanted constantly provoked inmates to violence,unnecessarily beat down inmates& verbally desrespected them.Inmates wer reminded that no one grom the public would ever believe any stories told about what happened in the SHU. This is why Im delighted for your cause. I know with persistence, you shall PREVAIL!!!
