Paragraph 3 of 9 -- The weather throughout the nation is usually mild in October, which is the last month before Election Day 2012. We hope to impress upon local and federal candidates that people are FED UP ENOUGH TO STAND UP against mass incarceration, wrongful convictions, prisoner abuse, capital punishment (especially without irrefutable proof of guilt), excessive sentencing, criminalizing mental illness, private prisons, inadequate health care for inmates, solitary confinement torture, substandard meals for prisoners, exploitative prices for phone calls, prison work projects that compete with companies that hire "free" people, brutality and covered-up murders by police and prison guards, and other inhumane acts.
Paragraph 4 of 9 -- Our banner will say "END MASS INCARCERATION" on one side and "HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS" on the other side. Please sign up in the comments section below to carry the sign though your city to the next city line to relay it to advocates who will be waiting for it there. You can use your first name, whole name, or a pseudonym. Name your city, and include a means of contact - a phone number or an email address. If you prefer not to use your regular email address, please open a new email account for coordinating this effort. No one will have to leave home and attend a rally in another area, but our demands will be carried throughout the nation. We will likely use four or more banners so that most cities can be represented within the month of October from East to the West. The HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS banners will be 5 feet long and 2.5 feet wide so they can be carried by two walkers without the need to leave public sidewalks. The banners will be plastic to resist rain.
Paragraph 6 of 9 -- INMATES ARE DYING of murders, suicides, and hunger strikes! STAND UP for justice and compassion. Please sign up to carry the sign through your city here and now in the comments field for this web page below this invitation. We're AWAKE, we're STRONG, we're UNITED. AIN'T NO STOPPING US NOW! We must repeal NDAA's Section 1021 for concentration camps in the USA, free political prisoners, and end racism and class consciousness in the justice system. Organizations, churches and temples, and colleges are encouraged to sign up and CARRY FORTH OUR DEMANDS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS. If you experience difficulty signing up to carry the sign from your city to the next city line, please TRY to email me at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com . Also, please email the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) at AskDOJ@usdoj.gov The USDOJ is the agency full of federal employees who are paid to protect our constitutional rights, including freedom of assembly, freedom of press and free speech. There should be eight numbered paragraphs and three(3) url links on this page.
Paragraph 7 of 9 -- The USA may be taken before the U.N. regarding violations against prisoners' human rights. See information at this url #2 of 3 http://www.internationalcure.org/UPR_USA.htm Use the preceding link to access "UNITED STATES HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN CORRECTIONAL PRACTICES - A contribution to the 2010 UN Universal Periodic Review - By NGO International CURE."
Paragraph 8 of 9 -- It is preferable to have at least ten people marching with the sign through each city, so please sign up to be a relay walker even if your city is already represented among the volunteers listed below. No number is too many. If you are too timid to sign up here and share your contact information, we must assume you might also be too timid to carry out your promise to march with the sign in October. But there are other ways to participate in this effort.
