Prisoners Participating in Sit Down

(Original Caption) Huntsville, Texas: Thirty-five prison toughies walk and talk in the exercise yard of the maximum security unit here as they threatened to maim themselves if tear gas or bullets were used to end their day old strike. Their protest sit down strike is in demand of a third meal a day other than the two meals a day they are now receiving. In the other end to the exercise yard separated by a fence, 17 more men sit it out. (Photo by © Bettmann/CORBIS/Bettmann Archive)
