Prisoners hold demonstration concerning food conditions
MARQUETTE — Several hundred inmates at the Marquette Branch Prison recently held what’s being called a ‘passive level demonstration’ in regards to the food that’s being served to them.Correction: The story reports that Rev. Pinkney is eating food sent to him, but in fact currently he is continuing his hunger strike.
“The food is the lowest grade that you could ever consume in your body,” said Rev. Edward Pinkney, an inmate at the Marquette Branch Prison. “The food itself is spoiled. They serve rotten food. Rodents have defecated on the food. The condition itself is almost… it’s unbearable just eating the food by itself. I have made up my mind that I will not eat the food at any cost.”
Hear Rev. Pinkney's voice!
