Do you know about this? http://prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com/
"On Monday, September 26, 2011, prisoners at both Pelican Bay and Calipatria State Prisons will resume hunger strike that last most of last July in continued protest of the inhumane conditions of their confinement, including long term solitary confinement and the widely-condemned practices of gang validation and debriefing. Despite international public outcry as well as legislative intervention in California, prisoners have stated CDCR has yet to make any substantial changes to their policies and has failed to keep up negotiation promises made when the strike was suspended in July."
I am outside of your process, but respectfully submit it to the GA for consideration, if you are not already discussing what to do to support them.
Congratulations from Philly on keeping up the occupation. I have a feeling it's about get a whole lot bigger real soon!
