Stop the force-feeding and torture of CT state prisoner Bill Coleman

Like the detainees at Guantanamo, Bill Coleman has been on a hunger strike but his began in 2007 as a peaceful protest against his wrongful conviction and he has been force-fed since 2008. Please help us bring awareness to Bill's suffering and bring it to an end.
