California’s prison isolation units remain inhumane despite proposals to amend policies

“Prisoners are confined for 22 hours a day in single or double cells, which in Pelican Bay have no windows to the outside or direct access to natural light and cell doors which significantly impede vision and look onto a bare wall. Such conditions are contrary to international standards which provide that prisoners should have access to natural light and should not be held in conditions of reduced sensory stimulation.”
