UPDATE on Santa Clara Jail Hunger Strike

Oct 19, 2016 UPDATE:  The Hunger Strike in the Santa Clara Main Jail is on- more than 300 people are participating, many of them in solitary confinement.  The classification system in Santa Clara Jails must change, and solitary confinement must end!  Please note this correction in the Sheriff’s number.  The correct number is 408.808.4611.  Additional numbers to call: 408.299.8770 and the Public Information /Public Relations Officer- 408.808.4905.  Read the below statement regarding the Hunger Striker’s Demands and, when you call, express your support for those human and civil rights demands and for the hunger strikers. Don’t be discouraged by staff responses.  State your concerns and support and keep the pressure on. Sheriff Laurie Smith has failed to respond so far.

  2. Called all three 408 numbers, although my thoughts about asking the oppressors to please stop oppressing are well known to you. But as my Uncle Cherokee always said, “A field doesn’t get plowed by beating a dead horse.” Uncle C was crazy and said a lot of Yogi Berra stuff like that.

    But the staff responses to my calls were warm, and generously praised our efforts on behalf of the prisoners….NOT!

    In return, I too was warm and generous in praising them for being so kind and loving to the prisoners when they won’t just eat their dinner land go to bed like good kids. Have to go, I’m late for lunch that I won’t eat today.

    Jim the Recusant. Plow on.
