Support WI Prisoners' Hunger Strike Days 13 and 14
Please email and call Waupun Correctional Institute on Sunday and Monday. As of Sunday people have been on hunger strike in Waupun for 13 days. One of the hunger strikers, Cesar De Leon, announced 6/15/16 that he is now also refusing water because Waupun's water supply is contaminated by lead, he vomits up their water and experiences stomach pain and heart-burn when he drinks it.
For Sunday and Monday, contact Warden Brain Foster
Phone (920) 324-5571
Sample script: "I am calling/writing in concern for the hunger strike happening now, and their six humanitarian demands against solitary confinement. You need to meet with them. Also, one of the participants, Cesar De Leon, #322800, is in medical distress because Waupun's water supply is contaminated with lead and he's refusing toxic water. Give him clean bottled water immediately."
Maximum impact for phone calls to Waupun will be Monday, between 8 AM and 5 PM, central time. If unable to make this time, can call and leave message, and email whenever. Each person that participates adds to the impact. There will be updates and further calls to action as the situation develops.
For people who have time, the same message can also be carried to Wisconsin Department of Corrections Secretary Jon E Litscher at (608)- 240- 5000 firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a "How-To" video for calling prisons (the example used is a lot longer than what's expected for this call, but it shows how the process can often look like).
If you're participating internationally, you can make an international voice call to the US very cheaply using google voice / hangouts.
