We ask you, Gov. Brown, to set an example. In their time, the U.S. Army consigned the inhumane prison conditions at Dachau to the trash heap of history.

Sheikh Khader Adnan is a former Palestinian political prisoner and hunger striker whose protest about being detained without charge attracted worldwide attention. He refused food for 66 days and was freed earlier this year. In solidarity with American striking prisoners, he sends this message. Hunger strikes are a courageous step and a real tool for all those who are deprived of their rights to lift the existing oppression.
