As family members and leaders of the California Families to Abolish 
Solitary Confinement (CFASC) organization, the Hunger Strike Mediation 
Team and the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition, we feel that 
the almost 60 day hunger strike was a huge sacrifice on the part of the 
prisoners. We can't imagine what their bodies have endured these past 60 
days and we are very glad that it's over and that there were no lives lost.

At the same time, we know and are prepared for the greater challenges 
that lie ahead. To ensure that the prisoners, our loved ones, never need 
endure such suffering again we will continue in our work to bring an end 
to such inhumane conditions.  As members of CFASC, ourselves and many 
family members are ready to continue and remain in the forefront to 
bring an end to the use of long term solitary confinement.

We are very proud of our family members and loved ones that were willing 
to make such a sacrifice which has gained international attention and we 
are honored to be part of such a historical movement.
