We are calling for a march this Saturday to empty the island, because we are done watching New Yorkers be locked up, tortured, and enslaved by the state as a part of its white supremacist agenda. We are done watching black and brown youth like Kalief Browder detained and broken down. Done watching queer and trans folk criminalized and inevitably forced into protective custody, where they spend 23 hours a day in solitary “for their own protection”. We are done watching working class people treated as disposable. We want resources for our communities. We want an end to this form of slow genocide! We want Rikers and all prisons dismantled!
