Attorney Anne Butterfield Weills: ‘Obscenity’ regs show ‘CDCR views many of its prisoners … as political prisoners’

June 26, 2014

Arturo Castellanos’ update on Pelican Bay’s response to hunger strike demands – positive and negative

Pelican Bay Human Rights Movement Bulletin: File your complaint

October 27, 2012

We are illegally being held in the SHU and Ad-Seg while being subjected to sensory deprivation, both physical and psychological torture, inadequate health care and isolation. PBSP and CDCR officials are refusing to comply with CDCR official policy. It is necessary we prisoners get more involved with our destiny.
