Solitary Confinement - Actions

Actions

The use of long-term solitary confinement, along with other grievances, has triggered organized resistance from prisoners and advocacy groups in the United States. Prisoners in California and elsewhere have launched hunger strikes, citing cruel and unusual uses of solitary confinement as a major reason. Hundreds of prisoners in the United States, acting through the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, have in 2012 filed a petition against solitary confinement at the United Nations. The petition alleges that solitary confinement constitutes torture and should be addressed by the international community.

Famous quotes containing the word actions:

    Your toddler is no longer a baby feeling himself as part of you, using you as his controller, facilitator, his mirror for himself and the world. But he is not yet a child either; ready to see you as a person in your own right and to take responsibility for himself and his own actions in relation to you.
    Penelope Leach (20th century)

    Men’s actions are too strong for them. Show me a man who has acted, and who has not been the victim and slave of his action.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But they who are unconcerned about the consequences of their actions are not therefore unconcerned about their actions.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
