Mother at Jail Protest Info Meeting: You Just Don't Feel Human Anymore
On Monday, several dozen community members gathered in the Glitter Bean Café on Spring Garden Road to express support for prisoners protesting the conditions at the jail at Burnside.
The event was organized to share updates about the protest at Burnside, explain its context, and allow former prisoners and their families to share their experiences.
Earlier prisoners announced a weeks-long non-violent protest against conditions at the jail in Burnside. In a statement released on August 19, the prisoners called for “a more productive rehabilitative environment.” They specified ten demands, including better healthcare services, healthier diets, contact visits, and more.
