Why prisons and prisoners must matter to the Occupy movement

October 11, 2011

Prisons and the millions who are imprisoned are a critical issue in this society for the 1 percent and for the 99 percent – and certainly for the Occupy Wall Street movement. At Occupy LA – and everywhere – we have a moral responsibility to expose and demand an end to prison torture and especially the high-tech torture chambers called SHUs. On Thursday, Oct. 13, 5-7 p.m., at Occupy LA at LA City Hall, family members of those locked up in the SHUs and others will give VOICE to the prisoners on hunger strike. As their medical condition deteriorates, a strong turnout is critical.
