USA: Virginia prisoners in hunger strike

At least 16 prisoners at Wallen Ridge State Prison (Big Stone Gap, Virginia) initiated a hunger strike before April 15th. A previous hunger strike was initiated in May in Red Onion State Prison, not far from the former, after which many of the strikers were transferred to Wallen Ridge (famed for being more brutal and corrupt). 

Not many more details are available as of now.
