SIGN PETITION IN SUPPORT OF FIVE HUMAN RIGHTS DEMANDS!
Internationally Recognized Torture:
SHU prisoners are locked in windowless cells with a perforated steel door & concrete walls for at least 22hrs every day.
In July, 6,600 prisoners in 13 prisons across CA joined in solidarity with Pelican Bay Security Housing Unit (SHU) to draw attention to 5 core demands.
However, the CDCR has not addressed the most important 5 core demands. So, the hunger strike is on again!
Five Core Demands:
1. End Administrative Abuse & Group Punishment
2. Abolish the Debriefing Policy and Modify Gang Status Criteria
3. End Long-Term Solitary Confinement
4. Provide Adequate Food
5. Expand and Provide Constructive Programming and Privileges
