Shut Down Rikers Island! It’s been called “New York’s Abu Ghraib,” a combination torture chamber & concentration camp. After years of exposure, after lawsuits and decrees, horrors that shock the conscience continue unabated. In the country’s largest jail, every day lives are irreparably damaged. Join in a non-violent direct action and protest to Shut Down Rikers Island. Sign up to be part of the action, or to provide support. Write: AddMyVoice@RiseUpOctober.org. Visit the October 23rd event page on Facebook.
