March On The Allegheny County Jail

Stand in solidarity with prisoners
Stand against all prisons

Please join us Downtown on Saturday, December 5th at 2:30PM SHARP at 1st
Avenue and Ross Street to march to the Allegheny County Jail.

We will march to Allegheny County Jail to show our contempt for the
prisons and our solidarity with those locked inside. We plan to have a
vibrant and uproarious demonstration to ensure those behind the thick walls can hear
our message.

We do not resist prisons from a position of moral obligation or public
servitude. We resist prisons from our collective position as members of a
criminalized class. We do not have enough money in our pockets. We have
the wrong pigment in our skin. We were born on the wrong side of an
imaginary line on a map. We have desires too wild that burn in our
hearts. And for our transgressions the State has criminalized and
condemned us. We resist prisons out of necessity, from our position
staring down the business end of a police issue firearm.

When a cop walks on our block, pulls up in our rear-view, or shoves a knee
in our back; we feel the terror. Let us meet on Sunday to feel powerful
in the face of our collective enemy. Let us ensure that our mothers,
fathers, brothers, sisters, lovers, and comrades trapped behind bars can
feel our power and support.

Bring banners, extra loud noise makers and drums, bring some friends, and
bring the ruckus. Saturday, December 5th, 2:30PM sharp, downtown 1st
Avenue and Ross St.
