Support the Prisoner Hunger Strike - Demand an End to Torture! VIDEO & Contact Info to Make Calls!

Please circulate this film far and wide on whatever social networks or TV screens you can get it on.  [Pardon the video "typos"...]  Today, Oct 10th, is the 15th day that the prisoners have been on hunger strike for the second round.  That is in addition to the 21 days of hunger strike beginning July 1st.  

This is a crucial time to be talking about the Prisoner Hunger Strike, putting pressure wherever you can, not forgetting that the strikers are at risk of dying of starvation in this protest for human rights. 

PLEASE do what you can to bring out the voices and demands of the hunger striking prisoners, many of whom have now been even MORE ISOLATED. No family visits, no lawyers, no personal belongings.  Please contact Gov Brown, legislators (wherever you are), and the Dept. of Corrections.
