Update from Hasan

This is an excerpt of a message from Hasan, for a more thorough and recent account of things, see his interview with The Final Straw.

Revolutionary Greetings!

Alice Staughton and I met with Warden Forshey last Friday and we are scheduled to meet with him again tomorrow. Depending on what he say about range rec, there is a good possibility this strike can end tomorrow or soon. We have already been informed that 5B group programming, among other things, will be reinstated. If the meeting is not productive, then we are prepared to continue with our hunger strike. Come what may, and let the wind blow wherever!

The remaining hunger strikers are as follows:

1) keith Dewitt Jr. #616-459;
2) Joseph Nagle, #589-333;
3) Sindrick Tucker, #178-137;
4) David Worley, #510-503; and
5) S. A. Hasan, #R130-559

Since the IV treatment Joseph Nagle seems to be doing all right. David Worley has high blood pressure and his blood level is still; thus, the medical staff is monitoring him very, very closely. Keith DeWitt is also being monitored by the medical staff. Everyone has lots a lot of weight--between 20 and 30 pounds. Some days are better than others, but we are continuing because we fully believe in the righteousness of our struggle. We are fighting the injustices imposed upon us. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. so eloquently stated:

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

In closing, know that I'm well and determined to see this struggle through.

In the Trenches,
