On September 26-28, 2008, thousands gathered in Oakland, California,  
to celebrate 10 years of Critical Resistance and to continue to build  
the movement to abolish the prison industrial complex (PIC).  Each  
participant, with their own experiences of oppression and resistance,  
watched as diverse struggles were unified: by humanity, hope, and the  
shared vision of a different world. We witnessed a vision of a world  
with truly safe, healthy, and whole communities; a world with  
unconditional access to self-determination and dignity for all; and,  
critically, a world without imprisonment, policing, and other forms  
of punishment and control. For more info, see:

Please bring your lunch. Beverages will be provided. $5 contribution  
requested.
