Organizing Meeting for a National Day of Resistance

Saturday, March 24, 2012, 1PM to 5PM
Hunter College, Room 506 Hunter North, 68th and Lexington Ave.

This country imprisons more people than any other country on the planet. On Thursday, April 19th, everyone who is concerned about injustice must join in saying – NO TO MASS INCARCERATION - in a loud voice. There must be rallies and demonstrations in cities across the country. College and high school students must hold teach in's and other actions on their campuses. There need be cultural events held on that day. The architects and enforcers of mass incarceration must be challenged over the inhumanity of the policies they are inflicting on society.

Come to an organizing meeting to make this resistance real and nationwide.

The Call for this day of national resistance has been issued by:
