No Separate Justice (NSJ) vigil will be taking place on Monday, July 6th from 6-7PM outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan, a federal prison where people accused of terrorism-related offenses have been held in solitary confinement for years, even before they have been tried.
Our July 6th vigil will focus on the issues of paid government informants, agent provocateurs and solitary confinement. We will be covering and updating vigil attendees on recent cases in the news including the arrest of the two women in Queens on terrorism related charges, the police violence in Boston against a possible terrorism suspect, the life of Kalief Browder, and the torture amendment to the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) among other important news stories. We seek to place the abuses we highlight on a monthly basis in a larger global context and recognize that many of them are abuses identified and experienced by others.
Please join us on July 6th as we continue to build a growing voice of people of conscience and shine a light together to expose the human rights abuses happening across our country in these cases. We have plenty of signs to share.
Directions to Vigil: The closest subway to MCC is the 4,5, or 6 train to Brooklyn Bridge – walk up Centre Street to Foley Square and look for Pearl Street which is in between the two huge federal courthouses on Foley Square. Walk down Pearl Street one block to where it dead ends on Park Row – the vigil takes place there on the corner across from the entrance to MCC.
