Yesterday I (went to The Dalles to support the hunger strikers) being held at the NORCOR facility in The Dalles. These strikers were transferred from the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Tacoma to a county jail where they live in grim conditions. They are striking for better conditions and to be allowed to work at the jail so that they can make phone calls and buy necessities. We joined a well-organized group of activists from the Gorge Ice Resistance, Gorge Resistors and Rural Organizing Project. This group has been staging daily rallies, vigils and protests outside NORCOR for more than a week. A local group in The Dallas has donated use of a historic church for this campaign. Impressive.
