Spent the Day in Oakland joining Friends, Loved Ones and Allies in solidarity with the Striking prisoners in the California Department of Corrections system. We had cool weather through the valleys and clear skies by the bay. I was able to listen to the stories of those directly touched by the evil of the Prison Industrial Complex. Witnessing the collateral damage of the "War on Crime", the "War on Drugs" and the class wars puts a sharper edge on the strike for me. here are some of the sights.
