CDCR lies about Prison Strike Resolution

Wisdom Quarterly

As it turns out, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDRC) has continued its propaganda campaign or public relations effort to undermine the prisoner hunger strike protesting torture, inhumane conditions, and unfair assignment to psychologically damaging (and extraordinarily expensive to taxpayers) super maximum imprisonment.

The hunger strike is not over -- in spite of the fact that this is exactly what the CDRC reported. Knowing that there was no resolution but reporting one means the difficult to trust CDRC is now caught spreading disinformation to spare itself embarrassment as helpless prisoners call attention to their treatment and the injustices inherent in the present system.
We are sad to have reported a resolution along with the misled mainstream media. It is not possible to contact prisoners because all of their activities are controlled, censored, and adjudicated by prison officials. Therefore there was no independent confirmation possible to verify their claims. Lawyers are attempting contact to find out exactly where the hunger strike stands.
