CLALLAM BAY — Clallam Bay Corrections Center inmates went on strike Monday in protest over food and other conditions at Clallam Bay Corrections Center, refusing to eat their meals, a state Department of Corrections spokesperson said Tuesday.
The prison responded by placing inmates on restricted-movement status, spokesperson Janelle Guthrie said Tuesday morning.
Two inmate wives — one of which did not want to be identified — described the action to the Peninsula Daily News not as restricted movement but as a lockdown, a more restricted status under which inmates cannot receive phone calls and are confined to their cells. One wife said food packages were being withheld from the inmates.
