Thousands of California prisoners go on hunger strike demanding end to "systematic torture"

On July 8, 2013, more then 30,000 prisoners in California correctional facilities went on a hunger strike. We’ll get an update on the strike and look at mass incarceration with Dr. Antonio Martinez, a psychologist with the Institute for Survivors of Human Rights Abuse and co-founder of the Marjorie Kovler Center for the Treatment of Survivors of Torture and Gregory Koger, a torture survivor who works with the Stop Mass Incarceration Network.
