revised from "http://www.indybay.org/calendar/event_display_detail.php?event_id=1247 " ONE DAY VIGIL BEGINS AT 7am Wednesday On December 18, 2002 at 7am, the Barrio Defense Committee and All People’s Coalition Against the U.S. Occupation and Terror will have a vigil and hunger strike in downtown Oakland calling for the abolishment of torture inside the California prison system. There will be a replica of a California Corrections Department "Security Housing Unit" or SHU to bring public attention to the sensory deprivation tactics that inmates are subjected to inside of Corcoran State Prison. Activists from the member organizations of the All People's Coalition will hold a vigil outside the "SHU" to expose the slow death of prisoners who have been put in the SHU because they have spoken up against the U.S. prison brutality.
