National Occupy Day in Support of Prisoners

Categories: Announcements, Events, Other Committees

Monday, February 20 2012 (President’s Day)

Demonstration at San Quentin Prison – East Gate – 12noon-3pm
*Abolish Inhumane Conditions and Torture
*Abolish Unjust Sentences including the Death Penalty, Life Without Possibility of Parole, Three Strikes
*Solidarity with Prisoner Movements for Human Rights
*Free Political Prisoners
*End Repression of Activists
*Development of People Not Prisons
Join us in listening to the voices of people in prisons and those who have had first-hand experiences within the prison industry. There will be a full program based on the reading of statements written by people in prisons, presentations and music. Bring banners, bring solidarity, bring a willingness to listen and learn about what is happening inside and why we need to stand up and demand change. We ask that the spirit of solidarity with people in prisons, their loved ones and formerly incarcerated people create a safe space for all on February 20th.
