To support the prisoner hunger strike happening now in Wisconsin, please take a couple of minutes to call:
DOC Central office- 608-240-5000, firstname.lastname@example.org Ask to speak with Jon Litscher's office, sample script: "I am calling in support of Cesar DeLeon, LaRon McKinley, Antonio Smith, Aaron Scott and anyone else who is protesting Administrative Confinement at Waupun CI, or any other facility. Please meet these men's demand that a one year cap be placed on Administrative Confinement. Also please oversee, investigate and protect the prisoners from reprisals from your staff."
WCI Warden Brian Foster- (920) 324-5571 Ask to speak with the Warden's office, sample script: "I am calling out of concern for the hunger striking prisoners in your facility, including Cesar De Leon, LaRon McKingley, as well as Antonio Smith and Aaron Scott who have recently joined the hunger strike. Please stop force feeding all hunger strikers, and please separate them from officers Beahm and Maungey who have a well established record of mistreating prisoners, including these men."
Expect to redirected around to other phone numbers and brushed off by different levels of bureaucracy of the prison. Be persistent, talk to as many people as you can, ask for names and positions, and post the response here. If possible, call for multiple days to increase the pressure.
A hunger striker inside Waupun has told us "I just talked to two of the guys who will join us on the hunger-strike and they say they'll start on Monday (8-15-16). Their names are "Antonio Smith" #275561 and "Aaron Scott" #461771. Smith can't send or receive any mail. He is completely isolated by court order. Both of these guys want to protest the over use of solitary confinement and a few personal things they have going. You think you can have someone call the prison and chekc on them by 8.17.16? If the adm. knows that they have support their sacrifice will have a bigger impact."

If you're participating internationally, you can make an international voice call to the US very cheaply using google voice / hangouts
