Show of solidarity with WI prisoners and their families - Madison DOC

September 22, 2008 10:30-12:00

21 people boarded a bus this morning in Milwaukee and headed to WI Department of Corrections headquarters on East Washington, Madison -  for a peaceful demonstration.  Participants came together around dissatisfaction with the WI parole system and DOC's treatment of their loved ones.  Several speakers who have been directly affected by the justice system rallied supporters in chants of "Justice and Fairness".  About 40 people in total gathered at DOC headquarters in a show of solidarity with WI prisoners nd their family members who are serving time along with them.  Co-organizer Sarah Freeman said, "This is only the beginning of our voices being heard."  (photo by Sarah Quinn - sarah@wnpj.org)
