Notable Articles, Recent and Historical

Although we bookmark many news reports and broadcasts under “In the News” in the left column, we’d like to point out some longer articles with more history and analysis. Long-time prison health advocate Dr. Corey Weinstein has one in Counterpunch, August 27, 2013: “The Shame of the State: Prison Medicine and the California Hunger Strike.”

Mother Jones has a good overview in “50 Days Without Food: The California Prison Hunger Strike Explained.”

And for a perspective on recent history, here’s Democracy Now from 2001:
Democracy Now from July 2001: “Prisoners in Pelican Bay, California Suspend a Hunger Strike After a State Senator Calls for Negotiations with Prison Management“. And the LA Times from November 2002: “Pelican Bay on Hunger Strike“.
