by Alex Darocy
On April 6 the organization Sin Barras, which means "without prison bars" in Spanish, held a rally and march to the Santa Cruz County Jail in response to the four recent deaths of individuals while in custody at the facility. Approximately 100 community members rallied and listened to speeches which were first held at the Town Clock. Courtney Hanson of Sin Barras spoke, stating, "We don't want anymore people dying in that building right down the street on our watch." The group then marched to the County Jail, by way of Pacific Avenue and Ocean Street, where more speakers were heard and a noise demonstration was held.
