corner of Pacific Ave. and Cooper St. (110 Cooper St., Santa Cruz, CA 95060)

11:30 am - set up.
12 noon – signs and outreach to passersby.
12:30-2:00 pm – rally, speak-out, readers’ theater, take action, write letters to end sleep deprivation torture of people in CA solitary units.

End sleep deprivation torture of people in CA solitary units:
Supposedly to prevent *******, guards are doing “security/welfare checks,” jarringly awakening people in isolation units throughout California prisons every 30 minutes night and day. (In Central CA Women's Facility, people are now awakened every 15-20 minutes at night; in Pelican Bay State Prison, people are awakened every 60 minutes at night.)

This is torture, immoral, and inhumane, and violates peoples’ penal, constitutional, and international human rights. It has no "security" or “welfare” interest.

People need compassionate care, rehabilitation, and restorative justice, not the torture of solitary confinement and sleep deprivation.

Take Action:
* Write a letter to END SLEEP DEPRIVATION TORTURE of people in CA solitary units: prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity; see the “Take Action” sidebar: “Security/Welfare Checks”

* Promote the AGREEMENT TO END HOSTILITIES (English & Spanish), prisonerhumanrightsmovement.
