History of PJD:
August 10th is a day set aside to remember, and bring visibility to, all those who have died unnatural deaths inside Canadian prisons. Every year on August 10, prisoners fast and refuse to work in a show of solidarity to remember those who have died unnecessarily — victims of murder, suicide and neglect.
