Hunger Striker Sent Back to Super Max, Refusing Water.

[UPDATE: Soja has ended his hungerstrike on the evening of Feb 11th We do not yet know the terms. More information will be forthcoming.]
Feb 7, 2013- Cornelius Harris (also known as Soja) sent an email last night stating that he is going to begin refusing water when he is transferred back to Ohio State Penitentiary (OSP). He expected to be transferred today. Mr Harris has already been refusing food since January 4th. He is demanding an end to harassment by guards and improved the security level reviews.

After 35 days without food people risk serious health problems, like organ failure. It is rare for anyone to survive more than 72 hours without water. More information about Mr Harris' demands are available online at

Supporters can call OSP Warden David Bobby 330-743-0700 ext 2006.

Demand that he meet Mr Harris's two very legitimate and very basic demands.

2) A RELIABLE SECURITY-LEVEL STEP DOWN PROCEDURE. (it's how prisoners have the opportunity to show good behaviour. Warden Bobby granted this to other inmates last year.)
Example: "Hello, I'm calling about an inmate named Cornelius Harris NUMBER 525-945. It is my understanding that he has been on hunger strike for over 30 days.
I am calling to request that you meet with Mr. Harris as soon as possible and see to it that his very basic demands are met... (They are: an end to violence and harassment from guards, and a reliable security level step down procedure).
Thank you for taking my call and I trust that you understand your responsibility to meet these two legitimate requests as it says something when an inmate under you supervision is willing to wager their life for their basic safety. Thank you again for taking my call and I I will be keeping tabs on the outcome of this strike."


  1. I am thinking about him and am hopeful he's okay. A Friend

  2. I will be more than happy to make this call...every day until Mr. Harris is safe....... A Friend
