California Families to Abolish Solitary Confinement CFASC will be commemorating the historic hunger strike of July 1st 2011 that spread from Pelican Bay State Prison to 13 other CA prisons and other facilities nationwide.
This hunger strike was initiated by Solitary Confinement prisoners in pursuit of their basic human rights.
On July 1st 2012 at sunrise (approximately 5: a.m.) we will be meeting in Huntington Beach on the
corner of Beach Blvd. and Goldenwest (near the pier) to remember those individuals in solitary
confinement who have not experienced this scene in decades.
In addition, we will use this forum to update everyone on the progress that has been made over the past year
regarding CDCR meeting the 5 core demands of these prisoners.
Despite being hit with wave after wave we are still standing united and as strong as ever in our
quest to represent the voices of those behind bars that cannot be heard.
Last week, Senator Durbin made history by holding a hearing in Washington DC on the issues of solitary confinement. We believe we are on the cutting edge of history and we welcome all of you to be a part of this celebration.
Come out and hear first hand from family members and loved ones how our taxes are supporting torture. You will not regret being a part of this event. Knowledge is power!!!
