Steve Champion is a death row prisoner at San Quentin, California. He began a hunger strike October 4, 2012, following up on previous hunger strikes conducted throughout the California prison system and in other states, which demand human rights for prisoners on death row, super-max facilities, and elsewhere throughout the U.S. prison systems. Over 2.5 million people are incarcerated in U.S. prisons, the highest number in the world, and daily subjected to inhuman conditions of solitary confinement, torture, long prison sentences, life without parole, and the death penalty. As human beings, we must demand an end to these conditions. Go to http://sfbayview.com/2012/death-row-prisoner-steve-champion-tookies-friend-on-hunger-strike-since-oct-4/ for more information on Steve Champion's hunger strike and his demands.

      Its extremely important to me for several reasons: The prison industry complex and have found new ways and ideals to regain their power through a make shift slave system that has been bought and supported by the American Legislative Exchange Counsil whereas these imates regardless of their circumstances have now become human chattel under this judicial system. To have a man like Steve Champion go out on a limb to protest hunger within the confines of this slave fortress proves my point. These are still men who are paying for their crime and that doesnt mean that they have to be subjugated to exacerbated conditions as such. Especially the giving opportunity to do something out of necessity such as to eat.

      We shouldn't put people in cages, and we definitely shouldn't torture or execute them. We should treat all humanity with respect.
