On October 14, four people conducted non-violent civil disobedience protests in support of the prisoners’ hunger strike – Larry Everest, Joey Johnson and Maryann, in front of CDCR Headquarters in Sacramento, and Keith James at the State Building in Los Angeles. They called for the prisoners’ demands to be met, and an end to retaliation against prisoners who were still on hunger strike or who had taken part in the hunger strike. All were arrested. While the system prosecutes protesters engaging in non-violent civil disobedience, the CDCR is allowed to retaliate against non-violent hunger strikers and continue to hold prisoners in conditions of isolation and solitary confinement amounting to torture. This, too, is outrageous and we demand that any legal action against these individuals be dropped immediately!
