February 20th - Occupy San Quentin

National Occupy Day in Support of Prisoners

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.
