Georgia Schreiber & Charles Minster: Prison Focus and Pelican Bay SHU
Freedom is a Constant Struggle TV Show, January 25, 2008.
Our first guest is Georgia Schreiber, Board Chair of California Prison Focus (CPF). Formerly known as The Pelican Bay Information Project, CPF was founded shortly after the supermax prison opened in 1989. CPF staff work with prisoners and their family members to expose human rights abuses with a larger vision of closing the SHU and ultimately abolishing California's racist, genocidal prison system (see www.prisons.org).
Also joining us will be Charles Minster, a retired trade union activist and supporter of the Partisan Defense Committee (www.partisandefense.org). Both activists have recently visited political prisoner, Hugo 'Yogi' Pinell, now enduring his 18th year in SHU, his 38th in solitary, and his 44th in California prisons.
