Torture conditions in U.S. prisons

20-10-2008 22:12

Gabriel Gonzalez was 21 years old when he was sentenced to die for the murder of a pawnshop owner, a crime that he insists he did not commit. Along with Kenneth Foster Jr. and Rob Will, Gabriel co-founded the Death Row Inner-communalist Vanguard Engagement (DRIVE) Movement, which engages in nonviolent, direct action protest to fight for better conditions on death row and in opposition to capital punishment.
Here, Gabriel describes the effects of isolation and segregation on prisoners.
THE U.S. criminal justice system is remarkably ineffective, absurdly expensive, grossly inhumane and riddled with racism.

Sentencing practices have led to the imprisonment of over 2 million people in state and federal facilities, with another 3.5 million under other forms of social control.

While some stay to pay homage to guarians of Home Farm road.
With many of the demonstrators detained at the entrance to Home Farm road, others decided to take the cross country route with a mobile sound system.
