<p><em><strong>by Johnny Aguilar</strong></em></p>
<p>I was released from Ad-Seg Unit on Aug. 19, 2013, here on B-Yard at
Pelican Bay State Prison, 180 Level 4. As of this date, Oct. 2, 2013,
B-Yard has been on a particular set program per CDCR, which I will
surely reveal to the public. They are entitled to know what we are
experiencing inside these prison walls.</p>
I received a 115 (Rules Violation Report, or write-up) for peacefully
protesting my right to resist solid foods for 35 days, so as I exited
Ad Seg, the unit counselor placed me in a special category, “C over C,”
which means I’m deemed a program failure, for approximately six months.
<p>I was made to send all my appliances (radio and TV) home. Mind you
it wasn’t just myself; it was 100-150 inmates of all races! It’s just
another way for CDCR to choose who is on the yard, going to school,
learning a trade or obtaining a job.</p>
<p>So as a collective, I brought awareness to the yard that we must
push forward by filing complaints (602s). That way we have a paper
trail.</p>
<p>We all are 100 percent committed in this struggle for true reform.
We will continue to be on standby and ready to resume if need be.</p>
<p>We all also understand and agree as well as respect the end to all
hostilities. Some guys have been returned to SHU for validation just
for hunger striking and receiving 115 write-ups.</p>
<h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(128, 0, 0);">We
all are 100 percent committed in this struggle for true reform. We will
continue to be on standby and ready to resume if need be.</span></h3>
<p>We are all aware of how CDCR’s manipulation and divisive tactics
keep prisoners fighting amongst each other. We will stand strong
together and not fall for such tactics. Here on mainline they (CDCR)
have continued to oppress us by not allowing those of us who
participated in the hunger strike and work stoppage to attend group
yard, school or trades training or obtain work. We’re even prohibited
from attending religious services and self-help groups such as
Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.</p>
<h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(128, 0, 0);">Some
guys have been returned to SHU for validation just for hunger striking
and receiving 115 write-ups.</span></h3>
<p>These A and B yards do not have pre-parole or other self-help
classes or any sort of rehabilitation, which is a set need for parole
board hearings.</p>
<p>COs continue to strip us inmates down butt-naked on the concrete
walkway for any eligible for group yard. These searches are degrading
and uncalled for. CDCR’s excuse is to make sure there are no weapons on
the yard, which is ridiculous for there have not been any lethal
weapons on this yard for over two years. We don’t even receive mandated
10 hours of yard a week.</p>
<h3 style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(128, 0, 0);">Here
on mainline they (CDCR) have continued to oppress us by not allowing

prohibited from attending religious services and self-help groups such
as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.</span></h3>
<p>We are on rotation of programs – one week Monday, Wednesday, Friday,
Sunday, the next week Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. It’s just another
tactic from CDCR to isolate, deprive and oppress. It’s all retaliation
for the hunger strike and work stoppage.</p>
<p>This movement will continue to grow in mass numbers to change the
prisoncrats’ policy. We stand united in peace to resist our captors’
long-running acts of oppression and send big solid respects to all who
are taking a stance in this massive struggle. We thank all the families
and friends inside and outside for their support. Stay strong; continue
to be brave. We are here with you.</p>
