News from the Fresno Bee about the protest/memorial for better healthcare for women inmates at CCWF.

Below is a link to a story in the Fresno Bee about the protest that happened yesterday. The protest/memorial was a great success, although many participants wondered aloud, why with almost 300,000 inmates in California was the crowd only about 100 strong? While all could agree that the memorial was necessary to mourn the loss of the 9 women who have died at this point, many felt that one demonstration was not enough and that serious organizing is needed to stop the CA prison killing machine.
