A Critical Resistance Donor Call, June 2013

On June 21, CR hosted the second Quarterly Donor Call of 2013 which focused on prisoner hunger strikes.  During the call donors learned about why CR has committed itself to supporting prisoner hunger strikes, heard about some of the ways that solidarity efforts from outside prisons have helped strikers make gains, and received updates on the pending hunger strikes in California.  You can listen to the audio here.

We were joined by two CR allies:

Sylvia Ryerson of the Central Appalachia Prisoner Support Network ( who discussed the May 2012 hunger strike at Red Onion supermax prison and the ongoing local organizing that emerged from that strike.

Lara Kiswani of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center ( who drew connections between solidarity with Palestinian hunger strikers and California hunger strikers.
