Demands Across the System

When prisoners at Pelican Bay State Prison’s Security Housing Unit declared their Peaceful Protest  would  resume July 8th 2013, if their demands weren’t met by the CDCR and Governor of California, they also encouraged their fellow prisoners to take up peaceful actions wherever they were, and to include demands of their own.  They said to the CDCR and the Governor:

Expect your offices to also soon be receiving separate demands from all other CDCR male and female prisoner representatives from all security levels [1 through 4] on GPs, Ad-Segs, Death Row and from all other CA SHU prisons who will also join us on the July 08, 2013 HS/WS, if their demands are not met by that deadline. Which will be tailored to their own particular institutional needs…–which we fully support.

Prisoners throughout the system have responded by making demands of their own.  Review them below!

San Quentin

Corcoran

Susanville

High Desert

  11. I dont get it your in prison it aint the hilton if you dont wanna be treated that way why commit the crime makes no sense to me all the pain you cause to people and your families putting them through hell just cause you wanted to mess your lives up and now you want us to feel sorry for you. Still being selfish if you ask me……

    • @jesus: If you think everyone in prison or in the SHU committed the crime they’re accused of, you’re being naive. Also, some of the men tortured in the SHU are nonviolent offenders simply rumored to be gang “associates.” By no existing measure does the punishment fit the “crime.”

  12. I just pledged. What does it say about this country when the state tortures its prisoners while criminals engage in peaceful protest?
