California Prison Hunger Strike

Prisoners in a third of California prisons have been on a hunger strike to protest solitary confinement rules and other inhumane treatment.  The protest began on July 1 when prisoners in the Pelican Bay Secured Housing Unit (SHU) began refusing meals.

The protesting prisoners grew in number to include other institutions, apparently becoming most active in Pelican Bay, Corcoran State Prison, and the California Correctional Institute at Tehachapi.
