Menard hunger strikers refusing water until face-to-face hearings begin

The Menard hunger strikers have apparently decided to go without liquid as well as food, and their physical condition could deteriorate rapidly.

The following information is drawn from letters received from prisoners in Administrative Detention at Menard Correctional Center in Menard, Illinois, and compiled on Feb. 2 by Attorney Alice Lynd.
