End the Death Penalty – Prisoners’ Rights
July 22, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In front of the Federal Building, Delaware Ave/North of Niagara Sq. Come vigil for an end to this barbaric, immoral and unethical practice, recently resumed by the current administration. Why do we kill people do show people that killing people is wrong? Especially under the Criminal InJustice System with all its systemic and institutional racism? Stand up for an end to it …..
and then – at 4pm – march with the Prisoners’ Rights Taskforce of the WNYPC to the Erie County Holding Center, 50 Delaware – two blocks south of Niagara Square, a sick building, where 30 people have died in and/or because of the ECHC care or lack thereof. Remove Sheriff Howard, revamp the system!! Signs – and all – welcome! Can’t come? Call Gov Cuomo 518-474-8390 and urge him to remove Sheriff Howard!
