Tomorrow: Continental Call to Support the CA Hunger Strike!

As the situation remains extremely fluid in California, Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity will be continuing to bring updates of the prisoners’ struggle and those who support them.
The hunger strike at Pelican Bay may be over, but the prisoners through their courageous action have provided a window of opportunity for us all to move forward, challenging both mass incarceration and the use of torture throughout the prison system.
In this context, it is important for all supporters to participate in the conference call scheduled for tomorrow night, as well as other upcoming events in solidarity with the hunger strike.
The conference call takes place Tuesday, July 26th, 6 east coast/5 central/4 mountain/3 west. There will be further updates & strategy discussion to support the huge gains and outstanding work before us. The line is (and will remain!): 1.800.868.1837, and the code is 326897#. Things are changing really quickly on the ground, which makes our need to communicate and build together all the more urgent. If you have updates or questions you’d like to see addressed on the call, please send an email to prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity@gmail.com as they build the agenda.
Part of our work now includes getting more concrete confirmation from prisoners at other prisons of whether or not they are continuing the strike and what specifically they are demanding now. If you have updates you think people should be aware of, please post them either as a comment on this blog, or email prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity@gmail.com

One thought on “Tomorrow: Continental Call to Support the CA Hunger Strike!

  1. I spent 10 years in California prisons and know the Pelican Bay SHU personally. I wrote a drug war novel Roll Call by Glenn Langohr to show the public the path we are on by incarcerating petty criminals is only breeding bigger ones who are displaced from society when they are released. The U.S is not the leaders of the free world; we are the leaders of the incarcerated world! I started http://www.lockdownpublishing.com when I got out of prison to help other prisoners change their lives through writing. http://youtu.be/jEQ8Gh1-bFs Here is the NY Review Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media

    A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction—sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic—of America’s war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr.

    I’m also writing over 50 California prisoners to inspire them to turn their lives around through writing. I want interviews and publicity as I am broke out of prison and can’t afford the regular channels…
    Thank you and God Bless Glenn 949 357 7465
