On Tuesday July 24th, members from several organizations including California Prison Focus, SV De-BUG, and IWOC (Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee of the IWW) met to discuss follow-up events to last years Millions for Prisoners Human Rights March.  Events this year will run in conjunction with a national prison strike running from August 21st - September 9th.  Events will focus on raising awareness of the strike as well as providing people with the information and tools they need to try and help support those striking on the inside.  Currently being planned is an awareness march, teach-in, activist workshop, movie night, and a solidarity gathering.  All of these events will feature formerly incarcerated individuals and attempt to uplift and amplify the voices and demands of those organizing the strike.  For more information about the strike, visit: http://prisonstrike.com/ -- related events in San Jose will be posted to the calendar as they develop.
