Supporting Prisoners’ Resistance From Lucasville to Pelican Bay

Statement of support from Sharon Danann for the Lucasville Uprising Freedom Network:

As supporters of the Lucasville uprising prisoners who engaged in a victorious hunger strike in January 2001 in Ohio’s supermax prison, Ohio State Penitentiary, we extend our support to the Pelican Bay State Prison hunger strikers.  The violations of human rights of prisoners must end.  The punishment of prisoners for their beliefs and for activities to improve their conditions must end.  The illegal, unconstitutional and inhumane use of long-term solitary confinement must end.

The treatment of prisoners in the U.S. is an international scandal.  We will do all we can to get the word out about the courageous Pelican Bay hunger strikers.  We will be turning up the heat on all levels of government.  We are proud to be a part of the prisoners’ movement that is rising up in many parts of the country and world.  Onward to victory!!
