Join Occupy4Prisoners at Occupy the Capitol

Occupy4Prisoners will be taking our Truth Mob and banners to the Occupy the Capitol action taking place TOMORROW – Monday, March 5th. Join us! Education not Incarceration!

Postcard: Occupy the Capitol




M5 Action


The plan for Monday is that when our march and rally ends at 12:30 pm,
thousands of us will remain here at the Capitol. Politicians and the
state assembly have failed to stand with us, the 99%. So many of us
will go inside the Capitol Building for a People’s Assembly to
ourselves decide how to make the 1% refund education, jobs, essential
services, and a better future.

Here is the schedule:
10 am – March begins at Southside Park
11 am – Student association sponsored Rally to Fund Our Future
1 pm – People’s Assembly Inside the Capitol Building
4:30 pm – Nonviolent Direct Action Training inside the Capitol Building
5:30 pm – Afterwork rally in solidarity with Occupy the Capitol

Occupy Education and Refund California adopted the following
nonviolence statement for the action that we ask everyone who comes to

“The Occupy the Capitol action will be a mass nonviolent action.
Those involved in its organization will not engage in acts of property
damage either inside or outside the capitol and do not condone such
acts. Decisions about tactics will be made democratically.”

One thought on “Join Occupy4Prisoners at Occupy the Capitol

  1. Jean Vitayanuvatti says:

    In FCC Coleman 2 in central Florida, they have started to make inmates pay for their own medications, except those medications that would directly threaten the lives of the inmates should they stop (diabetes, heart, etc). If the inmates can’t afford to pay, then too bad. We aren’t just talking about stopping aspirin, or allergy medication, here. Those who are taking meds for major depression, for example, (Buproprion) have been abruptly cut off. They’re trying to save money, at the expense of the inmates’ health. If the prison doctor prescribed the medication to begin with, it was a valid prescription and needs to be continued. As far as I’m concerned, and this should be a concern for everyone who cares, this is a human rights violation. This is a Federal prison. The Federal government took on the responsibility of feeding, clothing and the health care of all Federal prisoners (our taxes at work!), when they incarcerated these people. We elected the men and women to congress who passed the laws that put human beings away for most of their lives, creating the budget shortfalls. Change is long past due. It’s time to change our penal system from one of perpetual punishment, to one of rehabilitation, and turn our inmates into productive citizens, ones who vote, work, and can help pay down the National Debt. To every punishment there must be a beginning and an end; as there are so many ways to earn a prison term in this country, there must be a way for our citizens to earn their way out. Violent offenders must be reclassified to mean those who have actually committed an act of violence against another human being. Drug addiction and mental illness are NOT crimes, and need to be treated. Amen. Has anyone heard of any more Federal prisons (or state) that have cut off meds? I know this isn’t BOP policy.
