Tue Jul 30 2013Hunger For Justice in Santa Cruz
Tue Jul 30 2013Community Education in Solidarity with Prisoners' Hunger Strike
Wednesday, July 31st, has been called for as an international day of action in solidarity with prisoners on hunger strike, Trayvon Martin, and the many Trayvons who have been killed by state and vigilante violence.
In Santa Cruz, at least 37 prisoners have joined the statewide hunger strike to protest the horrendous conditions they are forced to live in. At least 5 people have died in the local jail since August 2012. To amplify the voices of those inside and continue organizing and educating our community, Sin Barras & allies have joined this day of action.
On Wednesday afternoon, Sin Barras will do outreach in neighborhoods, downtown, and at the Farmer's Market with the purpose of engaging community members in face to face conversations about the hunger strike, the case of Trayvon Martin, and connections between the two. At 6:30pm, crowds will gather at the Clocktower to visualize the struggles against racism and criminalization.
