Day 19: 30,000 Calls for 30,000 Hunger Strikers

On July 8, 2013 Prisoners at Pelican Bay and other prisons resumed their hunger strike and began work stoppages. They are committed to continuing the strike until California Governor Jerry Brown and the California Department of Corrections take decisive action to meet their demands.

Today is Day 19 of the hunger strike, and CDCR continues to retaliate against prisoners participating in this peaceful protest while refusing to negotiate. It is important that we continue to show our support & keep the pressure on Gov. Brown and the CDCR!

We have over 5,000 people that have signed the petition to Governor Brown. Now we need 30,000 CALLS for 30,000 Hunger Strikers!

JOIN US and USE YOUR POLITICAL POWER!

1) DAY 19: Call Governor Jerry Brown
Phone: (916) 445-2841
(510) 289-0336
(510) 628-0202

Suggested script: I’m calling in support of the prisoners on hunger strike. The governor has the power to stop the torture of solitary confinement. I urge the governor to compel the CDCR to enter into negotiations to end the strike. RIGHT NOW is their chance to enter into clear, honest negotiations with the strikers to end the torture.

Español:

El 08 de julio 2013 presos en Pelican Bay y otras prisiones reanudaron su huelga de hambre y comenzaron paros. Se han comprometido a continuar la huelga hasta que el gobernador de California Jerry Brown y el Departamento de Correcciones de California toman medidas decisivas para satisfacer sus demandas.

Hoy es el día 19 de la huelga de hambre, y el CDCR sigue tomando represalias contra los presos que participaron en esta protesta pacífica mientras niegan a negociar. Es importante que sigamos para mostrar nuestro apoyo y mantener la presión sobre el gobernador Brown y el CDCR!

Tenemos más de 5,000 personas que han firmado la petición al gobernador Brown. Ahora necesitamos 30,000 llamadas para los 30,000 huelguistas!

¡únase con nosotrxs y usen su poder político!

1) Día 17: Llamen al gobernador jerry brown
teléfono: (916) 445-2841
(510) 289-0336
(510) 628-0202
FAX: (916) 558-3160

Guión Sugerido: Estoy llamando porque apoyo a los presos que participan en la huelga de hambre. El gobernador tiene todo el poder para eliminar la tortura de aislamiento en solitario. Yo insto al gobernador a que exija al CDCR entrar en negociaciones claras y honestas con los huelguistas para poner así fin a la huelga. AHORITA MISMO es su oportunidad de negociar y terminar con la tortura injustificada.

2) Asegúrese de enviar este correo electrónico a sus amigos, familias y redes. Pídales que ser solidarios con nosotros – firmar la petición hoy y ayúdenos a alcanzar 30,000 llamadas

3) Recomendamos que hagan llamadas y organizen eventos de concientización sobre condiciones inhumanas en las prisiones para despertar y unir la comunidad. También puedes venir a los acciones de apoyo esta semana.

– Domingo, 28 de julio a las 10am (Norwalk City Hall, 12700 Norwalk Blvd. Norwalk, CA 90650.)
