Occupy 4 Prisoners National Day of Action!

Committee: 

Direct Action

When: 

Monday, February 20, 2012 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Location: 

Chicago Board of Trade to the Metropolitan Correctional Center

Facilitator: 

Occupy for Prisoners - Chicago

Join together with activists from all over the country to demand an end to mass incarceration!

This action is part of a national call--initiated by California death row prisoner Kevin Cooper. This demonstration is in
solidarity with those behind prison walls, their loved ones, and formerly incarcerated people. Prisoners are part of the
99% and we stand together!

We will meet up at 5pm at the Chicago Board of Trade to call out the racist system that puts profits over people and
prioritizes prisons over education, quality mental healthcare, drug treatment, after school programs, and other services
that could help prevent violent crime!

At 5:15 we will march to the Metropolitan Correctional Center to show solidarity with those who are behind bars. We
will let the 1% know that we have not forgotten about the 2.3 million people who they aim to make invisible. Those
people are our friends and loved ones and we stand with them.
