Demand That Hunger Striker Nigel Maccado Be Taken To A Hospital!

Nigel must be hospitalized and receive proper medical care that is not available to him at Passaic County Jail.

LET THE WARDEN KNOW THAT NIGEL WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN!

DEMAND THAT NIGEL BE HOSPITALIZED AND RECEIVE THE MEDICAL CARE HE SO DESPERATELY NEEDS!

PLEASE CALL THE JAIL IMMEDIATELY 973-881-4620 TO VOICE YOUR CONCERN!

Nigel Maccado, an immigrant from India, like all the other thousands of
immigrant "detainees" is not charged with any crime, yet he has been
imprisoned for 21 months without charge or trial. Without any
other hope, Nigel has taken the desperate measure of a hunger strike to
protest his unjust imprisonment. He has been joined in this hunger
strike for the past 37 days by Hemnauth Mohabir, an immigrant from
Guyana and fellow detainee at Passaic County Jail. Hemnauth, a permanent
resident, has now been imprisoned for 16 months.

These innocent immigrants' courageous hunger strike is on behalf of all
those detainees who have been imprisoned, deprived of their liberty and
basic rights by the "Department of Homeland Security". They are also
striking for all of us. When any can be imprisoned without charge or
trial, none of us are "secure". Don't let Nigel pay with his life for
this brave stand. Demand that he be sent to a hospital NOW!
