The Human Rights Coalition is organizing a rally in support of the hunger strikers at SCI Fayette outside of the DOC Headquarters. Join us Friday, August 2nd to caravan from Philadelphia to the DOC Headquarters (near Harrisburg). We will meet at the MFL stop at 46th and Market at 8am to caravan. The rally begins at Noon. A little backstory: On July 4th, 2019 16 prisoners began a hunger strike to peacefully protest their physical and psychological abuse in solitary confinement and their systematic denial of basic goods such as toilet paper, toothbrushes, mail, yard time and showers. The hunger strikers issued demands: 1. Abolish the Restricted Release List 2. Investigate patterns of abuse in the DOC and fire abusive guards at SCI Fayette 3. End Long-Term Solitary Confinement 4. Close SCI Fayette due to toxic waste and prison health issues On August 1st, prisoners across the country, family members/loved ones of the hunger strikers, and outside supporters will be joining the hunger strike for 1 day and will be fasting sun-up to sun-down for the rest of the month. This is to commemorate Black August, a month honoring the history and long tradition of Black resistance to slavery, captivity, murder and oppression. #Hungry4Justice #SolidarityNotSolitary #SupportTheHungerStrikers
