On Sunday September 17 at 2pm WE are running down the walls in support of Political Prisoners in the united states.

Each year in September Jericho Boston does a run with those locked behind the wall. People will be running inside and out all across the country.

Money raised in Boston this year will go to Leonard Peltier who is currently recovering from triple bypass surgery at USP Coleman.

“Some of us feel the entire united states is one big prison. That we out here are in minimum security because if the police tell you to do something you had better to do it or you will be arrested… like the nurse who refused to draw blood from an unconscious person… or like the people in Watertown who were pulled out of their homes, handcuffed and laid face down on their lawns while the police searched their homes for a suspect.

Some of us feel slavery never ended. That the 13th amendments “exception” clause gets realized in the 2.5 million currently imprisoned, with some 5 million on parole or probation and countless others living choked off lives under some form of CORI restrictions.”

SO INSTEAD OF BUILDING WALLS WE ARE RUNNING THEM DOWN
