Rally to prevent the transfer of inmates to prisons with Valley Fever

Rally to prevent the transfer of inmates to prisons with Valley Fever

Tonight we talk with two members of Asian Prisoner Support Committee about the dehumanizing conditions in California state prisons including the inhumane solitary confinement units. They also talk about a pattern of inhumane treatment, and raise the issue of the deadly Valley Fever fungus, which is blamed for 62 deaths among California prison inmates statewide, with a majority of them in Avenal and Pleasant Valley, yet inmates are still being moved into these facilities.

As our interviewee says, “When faced with adversity, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation takes the moral [low] road …because prisoners are the least protected population and they’re able to get away with it.”

Please visit the change.org petition to stop the transfer of inmates to these facilities and for basic human rights for the prisoners at Avenal and Pleasant Valley.

With Host Karl Jagbandhansingh.
