‘We are grateful,’ say hunger strike reps, as 30,000 join strike and support pours in from around the world
July 10, 2013

Greetings to our supporters and all people of conscience

Foto: The Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition held a press conference on the morning the hunger strike began, Monday, July 8, in front of the State Building in Oakland.

We are grateful for your support of our peaceful protest against the state-sanctioned torture that happens not only here at Pelican Bay but in prisons everywhere. We have taken up this hunger strike and work stoppage, which has included 30,000 prisoners in California so far, not only to improve our own conditions but also as an act of solidarity with all prisoners and oppressed people around the world.

We encourage everyone to take action to support the strike wherever they live. Sign the petition demanding the California governor stop the torture, plan rolling solidarity fasts if you are able, use every means to spread the word and participate in non-violent direct action to put pressure on decision-makers.

If it was not for your support, we would have died in 2011. Thank you everyone. We are confident we will prevail.

In Solidarity,
