On Saturday, April 10, 2004, the United Front to Shut Down the Security Housing Units (SHUs) in California will hold its second statewide meeting at the Uhuru House at 7911 Mac Arthur Blvd in Oakland to organize legal, political and organizing efforts to shut down the security housing units in the state of California.
The United Front to Shut Down the Security Housing Units recently convened a meeting hosted by the Barrio Defense Committee in San Jose included MIM (Maoist International Movement), the African People's Socialist Party, Aztecs of North America Inc, African People's Solidarity Committee, Justice for Palestinians, Zami! Cooperative, and California Prison Focus (CPF). Participants in the meeting also included family members of SHU prisoners and former prisoners themselves.
The United Front calls on all justice-loving people to uphold human rights and support an end to the brutal isolation cells used to torture predominately Raza and African prisoners.
The United Front will hold monthly public actions on the first Saturday of the month in locations across the state and is building for a mobilization to coincide with the legal battle regarding the first amendment and the Security Housing Unit so-called "gang" classifications and regulations. This mobilization will take place at the Federal Court in San Francisco on April 26, 2004 at 450 Golden Gate Avenue.
