On Tuesday, May 22nd, up to 45 inmates began a hunger strike to protest conditions at Virginia's Red Onion State Prison. They are demanding that prison officials provide medical care, nutritional food, and access to complaint and greivance forms. The Human Rights Watch issued a report in 1999, only a year after the Super-Max prison opened, claiming the facility failed to embrace laws protecting inmates from abusive or cruel treatment.

KBOO's Zeke Harrington spoke with John Mac Gaskin, a former inmate of Red Onion State Prison who now works with Solidarity With Virginia Prison Hunger Strikes.
