Gateway Green Alliance Universal African Peoples Organization

Black & Green Wednesday Forum: July 7, 2004

Mass Incarceration and Torture
in the U.S. and Abroad

WHEN: 7 pm, Wednesday, July 7, 2004

WHERE: Genesis House, 6018 Delmar, just east of Skinker

Draconian practices of the US government have lead to mass imprisonment, especially of people of color. This goes hand-in-hand with abuse of prisoners throughout correction systems in the US.

This daily torture of US prisoners is the basis for violence against prisoners in other countries, since many guards abroad were trained in inmate control techniques in the US. The tendency to violence by US military personnel is increased by their training and by drugs that are tested on them. The program will ask "Who is ultimately responsible for prison atrocities committed by Americans in Iraq?"

The panel will include:

Greg Tumlin, Universal African People's Organization, discussing mass incarceration and the struggle to save our children

Zaki Baruti, Green Party of St. Louis, Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression, discussing the racism of prison systems.

Bud DeRaps, Veterans for Peace, discussing the training and  drugging of US servicepeople.
