Request hours at the Juvi {youth cage torture chambers }

 day 7 of the national week of actions against youth incarceration was so amazing~ people coming together to speak out against jail and juvie and so much power and spirit ! With carnival like games of skill and cathartic screaming !
 Thank you so much to all of our amazing wonderful powerful friends for coming to the defense of our youth trapped behind walls ~ kidnapped by the state~ tortured for being young and wild and attempting to~ daring to be free !
 With puppies
 and carny's teaching us how it's done in the street ! ACAB !

 come with us just once and listen to the young people inside these walls, as they ask us to play their favorite song, ask us to smash out their windows, ask us to call their children and tell them~ i love you , come with us one day, and cry your eyes out and know how incredibly horrible it is that prisons exist !  FIRE TO THE PRISONS, COURT, JUDGES, GUARDS and fuk da Police !

 we could see the faces of young people staring at us, asking us to play songs for them, asking us to meet them when they get out, asking us to call their loved ones, asking us to get them out~ come back at 9pm and play Tupac !
it was a very long week and exhausting trying to understand muffled voices requesting everything!

the kids yell back. . . Open the window !

 report back from the second night of actions against youth incarceration !  walked down to the juvie to ask the kids what they need, what songs they wanted us to play, to let them know that they were not alone ! and they screamed out ~ OPEN THE WINDOW !

                          thanks to Food Not Bombs we all had a great snack attack and picnic ~
 we built this sick sound system platform and rolled around taking requests and playing sounds for freedom !

                                kids and big kids drew messages of hope for our friends inside
                                                                   we took the streets

                                                                Fire To The Prisons !

                         Panel discussion of the school to prison pipeline ~ School is a carceral site !

4 more days of actions and so far our minds have been blow with the level of excitement and commitment to ending this horrible machine of prison and child torture ! see you all tonight ~!
