Day 57.  I’m writing an hour before midnight Pacific.  It was a very long day.  What are their names?  Do all of their families know, because how many are there really?  How much isolation is keeping true stories form being heard.  From all I can gather, there are still over 100 people on hunger strike  that have been since the beginning.  Then after moving 80 hunger strikers from Pelican Bay to New Folsom Prison, others have joined.

The names of hunger strikers in 1981 were known.  Bobby Sands was elected as a Member of Parliament while in prison on hunger strike.  I know 4 names out of what could be hundreds.

“We are calling on all people of conscience to make their opposition heard. The people have the power to change things now. Know this: Our spirit and resolve remain strong and we know we can count on you all! Together we are making it happen, not only for ourselves, but, more importantly, for the generations to come.”
