Hunger Strike Anniversary Rally
March 7 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm PST
March 7th marks the sixth anniversary of the first large hunger strike in any detention center, which led to the creation of La Resistencia. Join us outside the Tacoma Cages to commemorate this important date, and also honor the legacy of Don Cipriano Rios Alegria, who was one of the main organizers of the hunger strike and one of the most skilled organizers we’ve ever worked with. Cipriano passed away in July of 2019, and today we honor his spirit and deepen our commitments to shutting the NWDC down.
You’ll get to hear from folks steering the coalition to shut down NWDC, engage with a timeline of inside/outside activism over the past six years, and dance in the street with DJs Luis and Pepe Garcia!
