Caravan for Justice II Confronts California Prison Industrial Complex
Sun Apr 19 2009 (Updated 04/21/09)
Town Halls and Diverse Allies Head Back to Sacramento to Demand Changes to Unjust Laws
On Wednesday, April 8th, fifteen buses and numerous carpools headed to Sacramento to demand that legislators begin to address the concerns of all the people of California in the laws they pass. Caravan for Justice II, building on the numbers of the first caravan, included residents from San Francisco, Oakland, Richmond, East Palo Alto, San Jose, Antioch, Modesto, Stockton and across Northern California. The coalition came to Sacramento to demand changes in laws and policies that disproportionately and negatively effect people of color in California. Injustices confronted included three strikes, gang injunctions, parole/probation, voter disenfranchisement, the power of police and prison guard unions, the police bill of rights, and other aspects of the California prison industrial complex which continues to grow while budgets for education and community services shrink. Caravan for Justice III will be held some time in May.
