At the last year’s vigil 1000+ people of conscience have cried out, “Shut Down Stewart!” Join us SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2015 at 9:30 am and add your voice to this growing chorus of justice. This year we expect to be the largest vigil ever!
Consider Corrections Corporation of America’s and ICE’s tainted seven year history at Stewart Detention Center:
-Recent hunger strikes and uprisings inside Stewart Detention Center (SDC).
-SDC guards still use the torturous practice of solitary confinement.
-At least two detainees have died at SDC with one wrongful death being settled in court.
-An American has been detained at and deported from SDC.
-Families are still denied contact visits at SDC.
-Corrections Corporation of America makes millions in profit at SDC.
-Stewart County remains one of Georgia’s poorest counties.
Indeed, expose and close and “Shut Down Stewart!”
