Join us as we demand an end to solitary confinement and the other human rights abuses that are everyday life for our incarcerated brothers and sisters at Rikers Island!
We will meet outside the Rikers Island Sign (at the corner 19th Av & Hazen St) at 3:00pm, this Saturday, October 18.
We support the people of Ferguson and their call for #FergusonOctober and we see the struggle for justice at Rikers as one of our parts to play in this effort.
The most direct way to get there is take the Q100 bus from Queens Plaza in Long Island City.
Please use the hashtag #ResistRikers and if you cannot make it Saturday, we will be back in three weeks – November 8 – to escalate our demands and bring out an even larger crowd.
