Hello Wingnut RVA,

Call to Action! March Against Mass Incarceration

Join us for an info session Oct 6th, more info below. 

Our generations are facing only the latest developments of imperialism, slavery, and the criminalization of our lives. Friends, family, and loved ones are constantly threatened and in fear of the expansive web of the Prison-Industrial Complex. We refuse to be targeted and criminalized for existing. We refuse to be warehoused in cages and locked out of education and employment. We demand Freedom, we demand Justice, and we demand an end to Mass Incarceration.

Who – Collective X, a multi-issue Direct Action collective in Richmond, Virginia, would like to invite you to a day of action against mass incarceration. We call on other organizations and individuals who are working to reform the criminal justice system, support political prisoners, end police misconduct and abuse, provide services to prisoners returning to the community, prevent the cradle to prison pipeline, and abolish the prison-industrial complex to join us for this action. 

What – A rally followed by a march. We hope that your organization would offer a speaker for the rally so that we may educate one another. Afterwards, we will take to the streets in a show of solidarity among groups and resistance to the forces of mass incarceration. We hope each group will come up with a visual and creative way to express their issues and to organize themselves and their supporters into a group or ‘bloc.’ Each bloc will come together for the march, both promoting their own issues and supporting each other in the common march. We hope that this action will build momentum for the 2014 General Assembly. 

When – Afternoon of November 16th, 2:00pm.

Where – Downtown Richmond, rally location and march route TBA.

How – Collective X is happy to do the logistical ground work for the march and rally. All we request from groups is help to make this march big with your endorsement, participation, and promotion. For more about this action, we will be hosting an information and planning meeting on October 6th at 7:00pm so we can explore more of our ideas together. The meeting will be held in Sarah and Brandon’s home at 2322 E. Marshall St. in Church Hill. 

In the future, you should expect up to one email a week in regards to this event. If you are uninterested in receiving these emails, please let us know. For updates, please checkhttp://mamirva.wordpress.com.

Thank you,

Collective X
