Wherever you are
On July 9, members of Toronto ABC will be taking a 24-hour fast in solidarity with participants of a hunger strike in the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay State Prison (California). They are protesting deplorable prison conditions - see below for details.
We invite you to participate, wherever you are, however you are able (for example, people with health restrictions can modify the fast as needed). The important thing is to express our solidarity, to reflect on the physical sacrifice of our imprisoned comrades, and to take the opportunity to explain the reasons for your fast to your friends, family and co-workers.
We will be sharing our solidarity statements on http://prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com/. We encourage you to write about the fast, and your reasons for participating, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
