MASS ACTION Against the

PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

MONDAY, Feb. 20 – 2 PM

Lincoln Correctional Facility

31 West 110th Street (btw. Lenox & 5th), NYC

The Occupy Wall Street Prisoner Solidarity Subcommittee answers Occupy Oakland’s call to action and march in solidaritywith the Pelican Bay hunger strike, with brothers and sisters who are dispossessed by the criminal INJUSTICE system, and with political prisoners everywhere.

The Prison Industrial Complex = Capitalism on Steroids

Mass incarceration is the New Jim Crow. Between 1970 and 1995, the jailing of African Americans increased seven fold. African Americans make up 12% of the U.S. population – and 53% of the nation’s prison population. There are more African Americans enslaved under correctional control today – in prison or jail; on probation or parole – than there were in 1850.

Brick by brick, wall by wall…
