To a panel discussion on

"Alternatives to the Prison System"

Alternatives are needed.

Place: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave., Oakland


This panel will discuss:

§ Prisoner's call for an end to hostilities, inside and in the communities

§ a critique of power's criminality as revealed in the existence of prisons

§ real alternatives to the criminality of punishment


Panelists will include:

§ Steve Martinot – author of The Need to Abolish the Prison System: an Ethical Indictment

§ Joileen Richards – Campaign to End Mass Incarceration

§ Urszula Wislanka – Pelican Bay Hunger Strike Support Committee, and News and Letters
