Commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Attica Prison Uprising

Friday, September 9th - 7pm Sharp
518 Valencia Street - San Francisco
Attica - The Restored 1974 Film

Discussion with:
Azadeh Zohrabi - Hastings Race & Poverty Law Journal
Dennis Cunningham - Original Attica Attorney
Manuel Fontaine - about connecting the dots to
Georgia, Ohio and California prison strikes


Prison unrest in the United States hit a boiling point on September 
9, 1971, when inmates at Attica State Prison after months of 
protesting inhumane living conditions rebelled, seizing part of the 
prison and taking 35 hostages. The uprising was met with a military 
attack and the murder of 43 people after NY State troopers assaulted 
the prisoners. Attica - released 3 years later - is an investigation 
of the rebellion and its aftermath, piecing together documentary 
footage of the occupation and ensuing assault. Especially significant 
today as prisoners from Georgia, Ohio, California and other states 
fight for their human rights in the face of increased imprisonment 
and the brutality and torture of long-term solitary confinement.
