Default Solitary confinement

i hope this is ok to post. I recieved this email today. Im posting it in case no one else has received it.

Dear Deborah,

Last July, 30,000 prisoners embarked on a hunger strike to protest inhumane conditions, particularly in California’s isolation cells.**Dozens of prisoners remained on hunger strike for almost 60 days, suspending it only when key legislators promised to investigate the torturous conditions and work to change them.On*February 11,*in Sacramento, the Public Safety Committees will hold their*second hearing*on conditions in these isolation units.**The most important witnesses are the prisoners themselves, but CDCR has refused to let them attend and testify.**Prisoners have testified at legislative hearings before.**Contact CDCR officials and urge them to allow the voices of the prisoners to be heard.*Join us in Sacramento.**Show the legislature that Californians do not support the use of solitary confinement!
Where:*Sacramento, CA Capitol Building
When:*Tuesday, February 11, 20149:30am-12pm*- Hearing (State Capitol Building)Rally: Immediately following the hearing2-4pm: Lobby visits - No experience needed, please*RSVP to lobbyCarpools: Please RSVP here*CARPOOL BAY AREA: Carpools will leave from MacArthur BART in Oakland at*7am*on Tuesday, Feb 11.

We will use every venue available to us, until the torture is ended.”
