Santa Cruz Jail Fight
Sin Barras is leading the local fight in opposing the construction of a new jail in Santa Cruz County. In addition to organize to end the inhumane conditions in Santa Cruz county jail, at least where 6 people have died since August 2012. The deaths in the jail are caused by the same pattern of unaccountability that recently allowed Officer Darren Wilson to walk free after killing Michael Brown. On January 17, 2015, we organized a CAGES KILL – FREEDOM RALLY to demand immediate medical and safety measures be met to reduce harm faced by those presently incarcerated.
