SUPPORT STRIKING PRISONERS!
Join Oakland IWOC at Mosswood Park Amphitheater on Tuesday, July 17, 6-8pm for an open infosession, where we will talk about the upcoming national prison strike and its demands, as well as how you can help collaborate in spreading awareness and building an anti-repression network to support striking prisoners!
In April 2018, Jailhouse Lawyers Speak, a network of inside prison organizers, put out a press release calling for a two-week national strike beginning on August 21, the anniversary of George Jackson’s assassination, and extending until September 9, the anniversary of the Attica Prison Rebellion in 1971. The call has been taken up inside from coast to coast, and across at least 17 different states. Through a coordinated series of work strikes, hunger strikes, sit-ins, and boycotts, prisoners will demand an end to prison slavery.
However, repression of inside strike organizers is already underway as the state aims to suppress this uprising before it can begin. Support is need NOW!
Food and drinks will be provided (but you can bring some too). Bring your friends, comrades, and questions, and be ready to put in some support work!
The amphitheater is wheelchair accessible, and there are accessible restrooms at the Kaiser across the street. As an outdoor space, it will not be scent/smoke free, although we will have a smoke free area. Please contact us with any other accessability questions or needs, and we will do our best to accomodate.
SEE YOU ON TUESDAY!
For a world without prisons,
