  1. Remember there are solutions but one must remain to civil and courteous to be heard and taken seriously. Demonstrations have rules too and if you want the DOC to change, you must present your issues in a most professional manner with clarity and proposed solutions that are realistic and without timelines. This will bring your ideas to the table rather than being opposed instantly.

    • Timelines are useful when done realistically. Reality has timelines. People are in prison for periods of real time. Our success was partially because when people are fasting there are real timelines. People were going to die at a certain point, if the CDCR didn’t start negotiating, because an indefinite fast has real and natural timelines.
