The 2013 hunger strike, the third since 2011, aimed to win five demands and end CA’s arbitrary and inhumane policy of isolating individuals in solitary confinement indefinitely – based on mere association without regard to actual conduct.
Join us as we honor these courageous people and push forward to bring an end to the torture of long-term solitary confinement.

Hi all! I’m part of Flying Over Walls (SF Bay Area Black & Pink). We want to offer some solidarity for this event. We’ll definitely plan on being there with a blanket and banner and will invite our members to join. We can also try to offer some logistical support, if helpful, and are happy to be listed as endorsing, if you are building any coalition-based support for this event. Thanks! Beja
