The call out:
August 10, 2011 marks the 36th annual Prisoners' Justice Day. Prisoners' Justice Day began to commemorate the death of Eddie Nalon, who bled to death in the segregation unit of Millhaven prison on August 10, 1974.
On the first anniversary of Eddie's death, prisoners at Millhaven refused to work, went on a one-day hunger strike and held a memorial service, even though it would mean a stint in solitary confinement.
