I only say this because this is what they are saying at Solano. Maybe there are those who are unsure of the details of the protest, but the assistant warden did post the phone rates on the walls. Some are saying 2 weeks, some are saying all month, some are saying throughout the year.

Yes, the notice that was posted is in this thread. It does address the phone rates but also Family Visiting and the LOP for cell phone possession.

The one thing that this protest does is cut the amount of kickback CDCR receives from GTL. But unless it's an indefinite boycott of wall phones, I'm not sure they'll respond to that in the way they're hoping.

Just an FYI for all of you who may not know why your loved one isn't calling.
Has anyone heard about when this is going to be over? Waiting on a call from California city
