Rikers Island Fact Sheet

On October 23, 2015, as part of #RiseUpOctober, 100 protesters marched to the entrance of Rikers Island, holding portraits of people who had died at Rikers. They spoke out, sang and danced energetically, and some sat down chanting “Shut It DOWN!” The NYPD had put up barricades across the road leading to Rikers Island prison. For more than an hour access was blocked.

Clark and Miles with Kenny Gilbert, their lawyer outside Queens Criminal Court.
Rikers Island is compared to the prison the United States ran in Iraq, Abu Ghraib, the site of scandalous prisoner abuse. This is no exaggeration. Decades of deaths in custody at the hands of guards, brutal and widespread sexual violence, solitary confinement for years, denial of medical care, and abuse of children are routine—a part of the genocide of mass incarceration. Of those imprisoned at Rikers on an average day, some 90 percent are Black or Latino.

Clark Kissinger & Miles Solay face charges serious enough to get a one-year sentence on Rikers Island for nonviolent political protest. We can’t allow this happen!

Sign this message to the Queens District Attorney calling on charges to be dropped.
