No Separate Justice Vigils: A Post-9/11 Domestic Human Rights Campaign will hold vigils the first Monday of every month from 6-7 PM outside the Metropolitan Correctional Center (150 Park Row, NYC), a federal prison where people accused of terrorism-related offenses have been held in solitary confinement for years, even before they have been tried. This new public education campaign aims to shed light on and end a pattern of human rights and civil liberties abuses in “War on Terror” cases in the criminal justice system. Please bring a flashlight with you as we will be shining a light together to expose this domestic torture site, the MCC.
