March to shut down Rikers Island on Saturday June 27.
Gather at 3 p.m. across the bridge from the jail complex, at 19th Av and Hazen St, Queens.
We demand JUSTICE FOR KALIEF BROWDER, who suffered at the hands of Corrections Officers like so many others at Rikers,
We demand the city immediately STOP JAILING MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE and fund mental health services instead,
We demand QUALITY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES and healthcare to those currently incarcerated,
We REJECT Mayor de Blasio’s 14-point plan for “reform” at Rikers. We will not accept any more limitations on visits and criminalization of our families.
On Saturday June 27 march on Rikers Island with us, to demand an END TO THE RACIST PRISON SYSTEM and IN MEMORY OF THE FALLEN. We will not be silent.
