On Wednesday July 31st, people around the world will fast and take other peaceful non-violent action in solidarity with the California Prisoner Hunger Strikers. Those who are supporting this effort include: James Cromwell, Angela Davis, Mike Farrell, Danny Glover, Elliott Gould, Chris Hedges, Alice Walker, and Cornel West. We fast knowing that the criminalization that killed Trayvon Martin, and the criminalization that justifies the torture of prisoners in solitary confinement are one and the same.

We fast in solidarity with the demands of the hunger strikers.  And we fast to get justice for Trayvon and for people of every gender, race and religion who have been killed by state and vigilante violence. Support efforts everywhere for Justice for Trayvon Martin.

We have taken up this hunger strike and work stoppage… not only to improve our own conditions but also an act of solidarity with all prisoners and oppressed people around the world.” Hunger Strikers in the Short Corridor Collective at Pelican Bay State Prison SHU

Actions so far in: England, Germany, the US (Jackson MI, Los Angeles, Oakland CA, Philadelphia PA, Santa Cruz CA).
