This edition of Stark Raven features highlights from Vancouver's Prison Justice Day Memorial Rally that was held on Aug 10, 2006.
Tiffany Chong, Stark Raven Radio
August 10th is Prison Justice Day. It is a day to honour the memory of the men and women who have died unnatural deaths inside Canadian prisons. On this day, prisoners across the country fast, refuse to work, and remain in their cells, while supporters organize community events to draw attention to the conditions inside of prisons.
