Hunger Strike News Clearinghouse

I am still on vacation out of the country, but for those of you in need of news and resources about the strike, here's what's new from the last few days:

Some welcome news about phone call prices.
Federal judges block move to house more inmates out of state. 
The strike at Calipatria.
Great op-ed on L.A. Times (which, by the way, wins, hands down, my best-prison-coverage newspaper award).
Action to show SHU unit on Capitol stairs (we showed the unit at Hastings last March)
Impending early releases.
The N.Y. Times chimes in.

The blog returns to its full coverage of the strike and all other matters involving CA corrections on Friday. Until then, best wishes of health and success to the hunger strikers.
