Prisoners Human Rights March

Prisoners Human Rights Rally Sister March in San Jose-Cali

The SF Bayview posted this report on the Millions for Prisoners Marches that took place on August 19th around the country.

In New Mexico, the local news station had this report from Albuquerque.

Thanks to Sillicon Valley Debug, a glimpse of the march against prison slavery, for prisoner human rights, in San Jose, CA, where Heshima’s speech was also made audible.

Here is an article by Jared Ware, entitled As A Nation Grapples With White Supremacy, The Millions For Prisoners March Comes At The Perfect Time (it unfortunately does not mention our efforts, but we know we are part of a larger movement anyway)

We hope that the movement to abolish legal slavery will from now on be on the agenda’s of those who are supposed to represent the people in the U.S.A., but we know a lot still has to be done.

Amend The 13th also has pilot plans to build stronger, more vibrant and resourceful communities, so that prisons will become obsolete. In the near future, we need help, volunteers, to build this new society together.
