Stand up for Prisoners - Picket Hickman's Office

Friday, December 02, 2005
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Event Type:
B. Cayenne Bird
Location Details:
1515 "S" Street on the City Sidewalk, we are asking friends and families of prisoners to dress in black and circle the CDC offices at the corner of 16th St and S Street where Roderick Hickman's Office is located. This is the man responsible for all the wardens, all the prison guards in California

We are asking mothers and wives of prisoners to dress in black and help us surround the three story building where Roderick Hickman, the man in charge of all the wardens, all the guards has his offices. Dec 2 - 10 am til we drop - too many prisoners are dying. They are doing hunger strikes which is very dangerous for them with the current shortage of doctors. The press does not intend to cover hunger strikes after the disaster at Corcoran where so many were criminally prosecuted for doing so. The families need to stand up for the prisoners as a flu epidemic is expected. Conditions are dire and a crowd is needed to alert the media of this crisis

this is available in flyer form at this website - please go there, hit print and distribute widely.
