Your bitter blind broke gap toothed radio show host Chuck Mertz interviews…

Carol Strickman will discuss the California Prison Hunger Strike that’s been taking place for ten days and now includes 12,000 inmates in a vast majority of the state’s prisons. Carol is a staff attorney at Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, a San Francisco-based organization which advocates for the human rights and empowerment of incarcerated parents, children, family members, and people at risk of incarceration. She is a member of the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition, a member of the team mediating between the prison hunger strikers and prison authorities, and part of the litigation team in Ashker v. Brown, a case filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights challenging solitary confinement in California prisons, now being argued in federal court.

Producing Wednesday’s show will be Spencer ‘Thunderball’ Thayer.
