Inmates On Hunger Strike At Pontiac Correctional CenterPontiac, IL -- Inmates at Pontiac prison are on a hunger strike, protesting their living conditions. Brian Nelson, with the Uptown People's Law Center, tells WSIL-TV they're former Tamms inmates who don't like several things about their new home. He says the inmates have complained about not having air conditioning, not having access to TV's for good behavior, and about sharing nail clippers. They're concerned things like Hepatitis C and HIV could be transferred through the clippers. Forty-seven inmates are on a hunger strike until their concerns are addressed.
