On Monday, we ask that you think about how our communities are being enslaved for profit by the prison industrial complex and the #NewJimCrow. In solidarity with the many who are in this abusive system, we ask that you wear orange.
Our friend and fellow occupier, Cecily McMillan is the victim of a sexual assault in which her breast was violently grabbed by an NYPD officer. She is now looking at 2-7 years in New York state prison after a guilty verdict came down from the jurors on May 5th. Nine jurors have officially petitioned the court for leniency in the sentencing of Cecily McMillan. It is clear that hard time in prison is a punishment that does not fit the crime.
If you are in New York City, we encourage you to come to the press conference at City Hall on Monday at 12pm: Facebook Page. Elected officials, occupiers and advocates of all stripes are calling for leniency in the form of community service instead of jail in anticipation of her sentencing on May 19th. We will then deliver 20,000+ petition signatures calling for #Leniency4Cecily.
If you have not signed and shared with your friends yet please do so now: http://bit.ly/CecilyPetition
