Prisoner rights talk at Info Shop

On the evening of December 10th, 2005 a forum was held at Paper Street Info Shop in Richmond to discuss the condition of the prison system in the United States. A racially diverse crowd of about 30 people were in attendance. Earlier in the day a group of protestors gathered outside the Richmond City Jail to bring attention to abhorrent and unsafe conditions that the inmates are forced to endure. Both of these events were part of International Human Rights Day.

Several activists, some local some not, discussed the current state of prisons in Virginia and abroad.
