This Thursday, September 29 at 6:00pm at the Space Lounge in Berkeley – Join the Saturn Cafe & TUPOCC (The United People of Color Caucus of the National Lawyers Guild) to raise funds for the defense of the Angola 3, political prisoners locked up in Louisiana’s horrific Angola Prison.
Last week, we witnessed a grave miscarriage of justice with the execution of Troy Davis in Georgia.
This week, the hunger strikes are set to resume at Pelican Bay where those in solitary confinement are demanding CDCR meet their 5 core demands.
Richard Brown of the SF8 will speak briefly after the film about political repression and recent legal victories in their case, followed by Jerry Elster of All of Us or None making connections to the struggles of those currently and formerly incarcerated nationwide.
Fundraiser! $5-10 donation at door (no one turned away for lack of funds)
