SHUT DOWN MCFARLAND GEO WOMEN’S PRISON
RALLY ON THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014, 5 PM
MCFARLAND PARK, 100 FRONTAGE RD, MCFARLAND, CA
Rally against the GEO for-profit women’s prison recently opened in McFarland, California. Demand that the CDCR cancel its contract with GEO, release all prisoners through available alternative programs and divert the money being used to fund the prison to community-based services.
We will be linking up in McFarland with the Trail for Humanity (www.facebook.com/atrailforhumanity), women and children marching across California to demand the protection of immigrant women and their families, comprehensive immigration reform and an end to racial profiling, and with members of the California Prison Moratorium Project who are joining the march (http://www.calipmp.org/).
