Todos Somos Prisioneros — We Are All Prisoners!

On Saturday, June 20, 2009, the Chicano Mexicano Prison Project (CMPP) will be organizing its 12th annual conference/summit on the question of “Raza Prisoners and Colonialism”. The conference will be held at 1000 Cesar Chavez St. in Los Angeles, Califaztlan from 11:00am-4:00pm.

Under the theme of “Todos Somos Prisioneros (We Are All Prisoners), the objectives of the conference will be:

1. To provide Raza activists an opportunity to share and learn from each other, the role that capitalism and colonialism play in the mass incarceration of Raza.

2. To network and unite prisoner rights activists/workers as a way of building a movement that can really challenge those institutions that oppress and exploit our communities.

3. To expose the terror and brutality faced by Mexican/Raza prisoners in the capitalist-colonial prisons of the United States.

The conference will include a panel-presentation of activists and a “circulo de discusion” (discussion circle) where everyone attending will have a voice in finding solutions to the colonial oppression of our communities and the mass incarceration of Mexic

an/Raza men, women, and children. The CMPP’s aim is to create a revolutionary response to the racist-colonialist imprisonment of our people; one that opposes the policies of the ruling class and upholds the interests of the majority of our community –the workers and the poor.

If you are tired of reformist reactions to the daily oppression and racism faced by our communities, then this is the conference for you attend.

Share, learn, and struggle. Join us on June 20, 2009.
