Hundreds of people incarcerated in RI’s Maximum Security facility are on hunger strike after being placed in lockdown to accommodate correctional officer celebrations. This means they are being denied the little rime they have outside cells to shower, exercise, make phone calls and access the outdoors. This is the same facility where over 90% of people were infected with COVID last November. Call DOC Director Coyne Fague and let her know this is sick and inhumane!! Posting in solidarity and with gratitude to folks behind the walls who alerted us.
