On March 26 nine prisoners at Racine Correctional and Columbia Correctional began a hunger strike. FFUP recently got word that the strike was over, in a letter received April 14, Cesar DeLeon writes:
“sorry I couldn’t communicate sooner I was completely out of stamps. The hunger strike did not last long. But we did manage to get some publicity. I’m still trying to have Rep Zamarripa (D) come see me along with some congressman to see if they can persuade the governor to issue an “executive Order” reforming seg (like Obama did for the fed system)"
