No State Execution by COVID-19!
Join the Car Caravan to San Quentin – May 9th
The Labor Action Committee To Free Mumia Abu-Jamal is calling for a car caravan/protest and rally at San Quentin Prison on Saturday May 9th. We demand that Governor Newsom act to prevent prisoners from being infected by this deadly pandemic. Overcrowded and unsanitary conditions which are pervasive in San Quentin and prisons across the country! In the Marion, Ohio prison fully 80% of prisoners have tested positive! Packing inmates like sardines in San Quentin Prison cells will infect many and some will die. Confined spaces like prisons, ICE jails and cruise ships act as incubators of the deadly COVID-19 virus.

Innocent death-row prisoners in San Quentin such as Kevin Cooper, who was blatantly framed by the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department for a crime he did not commit
(https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/06/opinion/sunday/kevin-cooper-jerry-brown-dna.html) could be sentenced to death by insufficient action on this virus! Cooper currently awaits an overdue order from Governor Gavin Newsom to pursue an investigation of his innocence. Newsom has declared his opposition to the death penalty, but Cooper and many other prisoners, due to his inaction could die. We demand the immediate release of the elderly, sick or immune-compromised prisoners, and all those who are close to parole.

Our protest will be held by the West Gate to San Quentin Prison located on Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Larkspur, Marin County. Cars will assemble at 10 AM on May 9th at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal parking lot, which is a 3 minute drive from the prison’s West Gate. The car caravan will depart at 11 AM. There will be a lead car to follow and instructions on the route to follow at the 10 AM meet-up at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal parking lot.

There will be a rally/press conference held near the prison’s West Gate by a maximum of 10 people. Drivers will remain in their car at all times unless they’re participating in the rally on a rotating basis.

Guidelines for This United Front Protest
We will exercise our First Amendment rights to protest horrid prison conditions. Our unifying demand is “No State Executions by COVID-19”. All organizations and individuals who agree with this central message are invited to join us in the action and display their own slogans.

All participants must adhere to the CDC guidelines for this demonstration, using physical distancing. Bring masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and water.
1. One person per car with ID, except for another person from the same household.
2. Participants at the rally will be limited 10 people standing six feet apart. Masks and gloves will be required at the rally site.
3. The caravan route will be presented at the 10 AM meet-up in the Larkspur Ferry Terminal parking lot. The lead car will be carrying a red flag.
4. People should tape their slogans to their cars which we will provide. While driving make noise by honking to let people know why we’re protesting!
