Detainee Strike Over Possibly Murdered Detainees at CCA Eloy Facility in Arizona

The following is a report coming in from Tuscaon Arizona - Immigrant Detainees are striking.

Decarcerate the Garden State Justice Committee calls upon justice loving people to call the warden at the facility and to support the demands of the striking detainees.  This is a CCA privatized facility.
Michael J. Donahue, Warden


Also call governor Doug Ducey
Phoenix: 602.542.4331
Tucson: 520.628.6580 

Demand that there be no police action against the striking detainees.

These detainees should not even be held.  It is a profit driven system that both political parties  are feeding with the failed immigration policies.  

The detainees at great personal risk are demanding an end to violence and an investigation into possible murders by CCA guards.

Please spread this action call.

They must have access to legal resources and court hearings if requested.
