Native American prisoner Jason Campbell on hunger strike at Ohio State Penitentiary (USA)

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

The following is a statement from Jason Campbell, an inmate in Ohio State Penitentiary where Lucasville uprising prisoners Siddique Abdullah Hasan, Bomani Shakur and Jason Robb recently won significant improvements in the terms of their confinement through a 12-day hunger strike and an international campaign of support.
