Tuesday, August 23rd, 4:30-6:30 PM
Join us and make some noise at Governor Cuomo’s Office for
THE CONTINENTAL DAY OF SOLIDARITY AND ACTION
IN SUPPORT OF THE PELICAN BAY STRIKERS’ 5 CORE DEMANDS
On August 23rd, there will be a special Legislative Hearing on Torture and the Solitary Housing Unit at Pelican Bay in Sacramento, CA in response to a hunger strike prisoners at Pelican Bay launched on July 1st. Pressure was brought upon the State of California, when at least 6,600 prisoners joined the strike in 13 different facilities and thousands of people on the outside were moved to take action in support of the strikers’ 5 demands. After 3 weeks of refusing food, strike leaders have begun eating again — but the struggle to win their demands remains vital!
As hundreds of Californians, including family members of the strikers, mobilize to Sacramento for the Legislative Hearing, we are rallying at Governor Cuomo’s office to demonstrate that the fight against torture and mass incarceration is not limited to California. We honor the strike in California, as we prepare to defend future struggles in New York.
Make some noise to bring the struggle in Pelican Bay to the streets of New York City!
When: Tuesday, August 23rd, 4:30-6:30 PM
Where: Governor Cuomo’s Office, 633 Third Avenue, Manhattan (two blocks from Grand Central Station, and the 4/5/6/7 trains)
