END SLEEP DEPRIVATION TORTURE

Solo Performance by Charlie Hinton,
followed by discussion
When: Friday, Jan 22 at 7pm
Where: Omni Commons

Charlie created Solitary Man based on his letters and visits with people in solitary confinement. The show is set in 2014, a year after the largest prisoner hunger strike in history.
Charlie says,“I want this show to gain an audience and become one more voice calling for the end of mass incarceration and solitary confinement…The world is such a cold and cruel place these days, I want Solitary Man to add at least one drop of humanity.”
After the performance, we will discuss how and why the men in Pelican Bay SHU have been continuously deprived of sleep since Aug 2, 2015.
Suggested Donation $5-15, snacks & beverages provided

Rally in Sacramento Against the Torture of Prisoners

Since Aug 2, 2015, people in Pelican Bay SHU have been jolted awake by guards doing loud “checks” every 30 minutes. This cruel torture tactic is causing serious psychological and physical harm. Sleep deprivation is inhumane. Join us to demand an immediate end to this torture.
No more torture in our name!
