Prisoners on food strike at LaPalma

According to a press release disseminated last week by New America Media, a concern about who was preparing food for general population prisoners sparked an ongoing hunger strike since May 18 at a CCA prison.

According to a concerned general population inmate at LaPalma Correctional Center in Eloy, a strictly male Californian inmate prison, the correctional center is upending its populations, switching its housing mission from 2,000 general population (GP) inmates and 1,000 special needs yard (SNY) inmates to 1,000 GP and 2,000 SNY. That population change includes switching the general population inmates preparing meals for the entire prison to SNY inmates.
