Hunger Strikers In Distress

Two of the hunger striking prisoners up at OSP are showing severe signs of illness.
Joseph Nagel #589-333 was unable to hold down water, was vomiting and taken to the infirmary. They checked him out and decided to keep him there.

Timothy Peavy #481-007 started coughing up blood yesterday. The other hunger strikers urged him to come off the hunger strike.  He did.  A nurse came and Peavy was returned to his cell in C-6.

OSP admin's approach of trying to break the hunger strike through stubbornness, rather than negotiations is responsible for these and other men's suffering. Please call Warden Forshey and demand that he change tactics. The hunger strikers demands are reasonable, the policies OSP is insisting on are inhumane, oppressive, and wrong headed. 

Call Warden Jay Forshey at 330-743-0700 ext 2006.
