In Solidarity with the Lucasville Uprising Prisoners on Hunger Strike

From the Facebook Group In Solidarity with the Lucasville Uprising Prisoners on Hunger Strike

January 6th 2011:
Just back from the prison visiting Jason Robb. Saw Bomani Shakur yesterday. Spent five hours with each and the conversation never flagged. They are both in good spirits and very lifted by the public response to their action. They have posted signs on their doors: “Hunger Strike: No Trays”.

Last night the doctor came by and weighed Bomani and took a blood sample since he’d refused nine meals and was officially considered to be on hunger strike. He’s 205llb. Jason got the doctor to weigh him a couple of days ago and he is 216llb. He becomes “official” tomorrow morning.

Flooding these guys with emails, phone calls, faxes, is the most important thing we can do right now:
