FAST 4 FREEDOM IN SAN FRANCISCO AUGUST 6TH - SAVE THE DATE! SPREAD THE WORD!
"Because so many are starving for FREEDOM" (from the call by family members of prisoners)
Fast 4 Freedom is a day of fasting and solidarity actions on Friday, August 6th initiated by family members and loved ones of prisoners locked up across California.
The Bay Area CURB Alliance will be sponsoring a fast and rally from 12 noon-1:00 pm at the State Building in San Francisco where Mark Leno, Senate Public Safety Committee, Tom Ammiano, Assembly Public Safety Committee and Fiona Ma, Assemblywoman from San Francisco, all have their local offices. (More details to follow).
We will be spreading awareness about the many extreme injustices currently faced by prisoners, their families and their communities.
Our demands include:
End Three Strikes
Reduce the Prison Population NOW
Release Prisoners Eligible for Parole
Release Sick, Aged and Terminally Ill prisoners
Family Visits for All Prisoners
End the Death Penalty
Education Not Incarceration
Stop All New Prison Construction including New "Mental Health" Cages being built in Chino and Vacaville
We want to note that August 6th is the day that Johannes Meserle is sentenced for the killing of Oscar Grant and it's also the 65th Anniversary of the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima!
JOIN US ON TO FIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND JUSTICE ON THIS IMPORTANT DATE!
