Inside story: the US prison system


Sadhbh (pronouced Sive) Walshe is an Irish journalist writing a weekly series on California prisons for the London Guardian, one of the most influential newspapers in the world. If you have a story idea, I’m sure she’d love to hear from you. You’ll see her email below and at the end of her story.

Many of you will recognize the person she refers to in this new story. Randall Sondai Ellis is one of the hunger strike leaders at Pelican Bay. Here are a couple of stories he’s written recently: Retaliation at Pelican Bay: Letters from the SHU and To witness people say no to state-sanctioned torture is a beautiful sight indeed.

 

This latest story by Sadhbh is the third in her series.

Here they all are:
