#ResistRikers Rally Against Solitary Confinement and Youth Detention SATURDAY 3pm-5pm
Meet in front of the Rikers Sign, 19th Av & Hazen St, Queens

Mass rally at the gates of Rikers Island until the walls shake! Family and friends of incarcerated people speak out with demands.

Since our last rally, 3 top officials at Rikers have been forced to resign. And in this time we have been in the streets flyering and talking to people about the ways that mass incarceration affects our lives and harms our communities. We had over fifty people at our last rally, and we all pledged to bring at least three friends out to the next action.
This rally we will be hundreds and our next we will be thousands – we need you in this movement to continue the Ferguson October and resist mass incarceration.
