SATURDAY DECEMBER 6, 3pm
Meet in front of the Rikers Sign, 19th Av & Hazen St, Queens (take the Q100 bus from Long Island City) Mass rally at the gates of Rikers Island until the walls shake! Family and friends of incarcerated people speak out with demands.
WE SAY NO:
NO Solitary confinement
NO Youth Detention Mental Observation
NO Enhanced Supervision Housing Unit (ESHU)
We reject the DOC’s proposed plan for ESHU as it unfairly punishes people who can be arbitrarily deemed violent, it has no protection for mentally-ill people and offers no recourse to leave the unit. Commissioner Ponte and Mayor DeBlasio, we will not allow you to sweep us under the rug or lock us away in a new unit.
We stand with the people of #Ferguson http://www.handsupunited.org/
RSVP ON FACEBOOK and Invite Friends!
