***Hello friends! This is a call to action for Wed July 31st from local prison abolitionist group Sin Barras. Its part of an international day of solidarity with Prisoner Hunger Strikers and Trayvon Martin, because those are two powerful struggles happening right now that are clearly connected. The gist of it, is that people are being asked to attend a rally at 6:30 at the clock tower that day, as well as fast in solidarity with prisoners.
There's more ways to get involved and more info about what's going on if you read below. Just try to remember that when people are putting their bodies on the line in that way, things get urgent fast and we don't have the luxury of time, so WE are the way that this will be promoted!
Spread the word. It helps the prisoners to know we are out here supporting them, so show up or fast if your health permits. Its worth noting that the prisoners are asking folks to not engage in civil disobedience that day, which can have bigger consequences for them than for us.
And here's the facebook event. https://www.facebook.com/events/181093905402253/?ref=22
