LINCOLN — Three women went on a hunger strike at Logan Correctional Center. The Illinois Department of Corrections in a statement said the women had been moved between housing units on two occasions in May and June because of plumbing issues and a leaky pipe. "On June 7, to protest the lack of video conference kiosks and weak Wi-Fi connection in the temporary space, three women verbally declared a hunger strike," the department said.
The hunger strike ended Wednesday when plumbing repairs were made and they moved back, the department said.
