Prisoner Solidarity Forum

Jan 12 2013 - 2:00pm

On the day following the 11th anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo Detention Center, this event brings together people in the Chicago area who are working on a support and legal advocacy for a range of prisoners in the archipelago of U.S. prisons, including:

Guantanamo (see http://www.nogitmos.org/witnessagainsttorturechicago )

Muslim prisoners in U.S. federal prisons such as Marion, IL, and Terre Haute, IN (see http://salamillinois.blogspot.com/ )

The NATO5 (see http://nato5.occupychi.org/ )

Drone resisters such as Brian Terrell (see http://nodronesmissouri.blogspot.com/2012/11/brian-terrell-i-go-in-solidarity-with.html )

Victims of torture-by-sensory-deprivation (“solitary confinement”), including former prisoners at TAMMS (see http://www.yearten.org/)

Learn about cases, write to prisoners, join with others who are seeking to reverse systemic injustice in the U.S.

Refreshments, music, and review of videos and other educational materials.
