California Prisoners End Hunger Strike

Two legislators have agreed to look into the conditions inmates are kept in


(09-05) 11:09 PDT SACRAMENTO — A two-month hunger strike across California prisons came to an end Thursday, a week after two state legislators promised to look into concerns about inmate conditions.

State prison officials announced Thursday that all participants in the protest had started accepting food.

In July, more than 30,000 inmates began refusing meals to protest the state's use of solitary confinement. The number of protesters had since fallen.
