>>  August 1 saw thousands of activists join forces in a day of
>>  action against
>>  the criminal injustice system during the Republican National
>>  Convention in
>>  Philadelphia.  Activists used direct-action civil disobedience
>>  to demand an
>>  end to the death penalty, the prison industrial complex, the
>>  criminalization
>>  of youth and to demand justice for Mumia Abu-Jamal.  They were
>>  confronted
>>  with police brutality and intimidation ‚ many of the same
>>  tactics the police
>>  commonly use against people of color, poor and working class
>>  communities and
>>  which this day of action was called to protest.
>>
>>  Over 450 of these non-violent activists were arrested and are
>>  now being held
>>  in two jail locations in Philadelphia.  They are slowly being
>>  processed, and
>>  reports are still being received of brutality against them,
>>  including;
>>  isolation of people suspected of being "organizers," beatings,
>>  and denial of
>>  needed medication.  Seven witnesses saw one woman dragged
>>  naked and
>>  bleeding.  Nearly all are participating in jail solidarity,
>>  which means that
>>  they are demanding to be discharged together.
>>
>>  These activists URGENTLY need your SUPPORT!!  Call these
>>  officials and let
>>  them know that you demand the release of those inside the
>>  jails.
