Vigil to protest U.S.'s runaway imprisonment
We now have 2 million prisoners in the land of the free, and with the mad rush to judgment, mostly because of the tremendous numbers incarcerated in the name of the drug war, many innocents are being caught in the injustice system. This just has to stop.
On Feb 15th 2000, there will be prison vigils across the land sponsored by the November Coalition, supported by a variety of groups concerned with prison issues, and organized by people like you and me.
Florida supporters and inmate families will hold vigil from noon until 3:00 at Starke Prison near Gainesville Fl on Feb 15th to mourn the loss of honor and compassion that makes America the leading jailer in the world. Please stand with us to show Jeb Bush and all the nation's governors and legislators that the good people of our country care about even the least among us.
