Today, people detained by ICE at Yuba County Jail started a hunger strike to protest the terrible conditions that they are suffering. The detainees are asking allies on the outside to call the jail administration to pressure them to address the hunger strikers’ demands.

Please call the jail today or tomorrow (February 10-11), 530-749-7740 and Sheriff Anderson at 530-749-7777, to give the following message:

“Hello, my name is ________ from _______, and I’m calling to support the hunger striking detainees at Yuba County Jail. They are suffering from poor healthcare, unsanitary and punitive conditions, inadequate fresh air and exercise, and 19 to 23 hour lockdowns.
