3 Logan Correctional Center inmates go on hunger strike | Crime-and-courts

​LINCOLN — 3 ladies went on a cravings strike at Logan Correctional Center.

The Illinois Department of Corrections in a statement said the ladies had been moved between housing units on two occasions in May and June because of plumbing issues and a leaky pipe.

“On June 7, to protest the lack of video conference kiosks and weak Wi-Fi connection in the temporary space, three women verbally declared a hunger strike,” the department stated.

The hunger strike ended Wednesday when pipes repairs were made and they moved back, the department stated.
