Facebook Event: Rally & Press Conference To Support Folsom Prison Hunger Strike
Please share the Facebook event, continue to contact prison officials, and look out for details like carpools, rally schedule, etc.
On May 25th, prisoners in Folsom State Prison B4 ASU (Administrative Segregation Unit) began a hunger strike to peacefully protest the inhumane conditions of their confinement in the administrative segregation unit. Prisoners have exhausted all reasonable remedies and have attempted to open lines of communication with administrative officials, and have been met with only resistance, silence, and now retaliation.
We cannot say exactly how many people are refusing meals, but we know that there are roughly 30 people in the unit that announced the strike.
