Sin Barras is hosting an open planning meeting to organize an action for March 23rd in solidarity with the prisoner-led movement to end solitary confinement in California.Added to the calendar on Monday Mar 9th, 2015 7:26 AM
Statewide Coordinated Actions To End Solitary Confinement (SCATESC) will begin on Monday, March 23th, and will happen on the 23rd of each month. This date was chosen to emphasize that in California prisons people are kept in solitary confinement for 23 or more hours every day--sometimes for years, and even decades.
These coordinated actions respond to The Pelican Bay State Prisoner Hunger Strikers’ Proposals for action, based on meetings that happened in November of 2013.
“We want to consider the idea of designating a certain date each month as Prisoner Rights Day. On that date each month prisoners across the state would engage in peaceful activities to call attention to prison conditions. At the same time our supporters would gather in locations throughout California to expose CDCR’s actions and rally support efforts to secure our rights. We can see this action growing from month to month as more people inside and out become aware of it and join our struggle.”
For Santa Cruz, it's time to decide what our first action will look like. Please join Sin Barras at our next meeting to get involved!
