Eric McDavid Ends Hunger Strike

After a duration of two weeks, Eric McDavid ended his hunger strike on Friday, March 24. This decision was concurrent with the filing of a lawsuit on his behalf against the County of Sacramento and the United States Marshals Service alleging violations of his constitutional and federal statutory rights. These rights include food he can eat [ a vegan diet ] and outdoor exercise, two things he has been denied since he was first arrested. We are asking that people continue to contact the jail and the sheriff to protest Eric's mistreatment at their hands and insist that he be given vegan food. When calling, be sure to keep his x-reference number [ X-2972521 ] handy.
