Calipatria-State-Prison-4-by-Kendra-Castaneda, Calipatria prisoners all on strike, Abolition Now! Greetings to all with like mind and heart in the struggle. Here in Calipatria State Prison we continue to push forward as one in solidarity with our mindset to hunger striking in unity with all races until CDCR (California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation) meets the five core demands.

The entire Calipatria State Prison – General Population (GP) and Administrative Segregation Unit (ASU) – are in full support and fighting peacefully together to make sure our voices are heard exposing CDCR’s corrupt system for what it is.

We all stand in solidarity with the Short Corridor at Pelican Bay State Prison and the rest of our fellow peaceful protestors throughout the state of California and across the nation. We stand firm in our struggle and beliefs for human rights. Puro Parra Adelante!

In Solidarity,

Calipatria State Prison GP and ASU

Send our brother some love and light: Robbie Riva, T-49359, ASU 130, P.O. Box 5008, Calipatria CA 92233.
