***Another change of date: the trial will now start Monday, July 30th, starting at 8:30am every morning and running til around 1pm. The trial might last the whole week. Come for however much you can!

Come out to show the Massachusetts Department of Correction that we are watching them and their behavior behind the prison walls and we will not accept it!

In 2008, guards attacked Derrick Washington, a known asthmatic, with chemical agents and threw him in solitary, into a cell that had black mold, naked. They refused to provide him with medical attention or allow him to shower the chemical agents off of him. Then they tried to cover the whole incident up.

A decade later, Derrick has his day in court. Let's show up for him to show that we love and care about everyone behind the prison walls.

The prison walls are designed to keep the public out, and we will not allow it!

«This incident highlights the autonomy of prison institutions and how humanity is discounted, as the public is shielded from the affairs which take place behind these walls.»
