Solitary Confinement is Torture!

Arcata Plaza: 5pm for the 5 Demands!

END LONG TERM SOLITARY CONFINEMENT IN CA PRISONS

On July 8, people locked in CA prisons will put their lives on the line to stop the torture: PRISONER HUNGER STRIKE BEGINS

AT PELICAN BAY 7/8

United across race lines, prisoners in isolation units 70 mi. north at Pelican Bay State Prison, have called for a peaceful

Hunger Strike/Work Stoppage in CA prisons. Prolonged extreme isolation is inhumane and debilitating- Indefinitely locked in

a small concrete, windowless cell, with no natural light or human contact! Many people have been entombed this way for

DECADES. CA inflicts this torture, based merely on a prisoner’s alleged association with a prison gang, whether or not they

are – or ever were – actually involved in gang activity.

Please join us @ Arcata Plaza, Thursdays, 5 pm. Learn, Organize & show Solidarity with these folks who are being robbed of

their humanity & are taking courageous, historic steps to insure no one else will experience that hell.

It is our job on the “outside” to bring out the voices of prisoners from behind the concrete walls.

Tell  Gov. Brown: MEET THE PRISONERS’ 5 DEMANDS!*

1. Individual Accountability -Eliminate group punishments.

2. Abolish the Debriefing policy

3. Comply with the recommendations of the US Commission on Safety and Abuse in Prisons (2006) regarding  An End to Long

Term Solitary Confinement.

4. Provide Adequate Food

5. Expand & Provide Constructive Programming & Privileges for Indefinite SHU Status Inmates.
