More info from NWDC Resistance and on Social Media
At noon on Monday, April 10th, over 100 detained immigrants at the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma began a 72-hour hunger strike to protest human rights abuses inside the facility and to fight for better conditions. As of 8PM Monday, the strike had spread to 415 detainees. Organizers on the inside have asked for the presence of supporters at the Detention Center until it ends. People who are willing to stay late/come early/camp out in front of the NWDC are urged to head there as soon as possible. The NWDC is located at 1623 E J St, Tacoma. Donations of food/water/supplies are also needed and appreciated.
