Lots of folks needing letter and card coming- here are names of present hunger strikers.

Please consider writing letters to these prisoners who have been engaged in direct action and food refusals against the WI DOC solitary confinement and control unit practices.

Dozens more in Columbia?
Robert Ward 515599
Columbia CI P. O. Box 900 Portage WI 53901-0909 

Ward sent a letter describing conditions in Columbia Correctional and stating that dozens of prisoners are on hunger strike there. A nurse said there were so many being force fed that they were unable to treat other patients. We don't have any other names at this time, or knowledge of their demands, if they're different from the Dying to Live demands.
