“CALIFORNIA PRISON FOCUS has finally confirmed the Pelican Bay hunger strike leaders did end their hunger strike in exchange for some immediate changes & the CDCR‘s promise to review their gang validation & SHU housing policies. It is imperative to keep organized & strong to ensure that the CDCR does not retaliate on prisoners or supporters, & to make sure they implement the changes in SHU policies.”
The Guys were amazed at the amount of outside support that was received- nationally & internationally;
17 prisoners were bussed from PB to Corcoran for medical treatment- not life threatening. The guys at PB are mentally clear, strong in spirit and have lost between 20-35 lbs- resuming eating will be gradual.
Those of you who have loved ones in other prisons- please start spreading the word….get the word out that the PB strike leaders have called the strike and there was SUCCESS!!
On a Personal note: I wanted to let you ALL know that for the almost 10 years I have been an activist/advocate on behalf of CA Prisoners- NEVER, EVER have I seen the Mobilization, Unity & Solidarity that has been shown this last month…this just proves, yes we can- WE CAN MAKE CHANGE!! Si Se Puede!! My heart goes out to each & everyone of you…..thank YOU!
