Report Back from Corcoran Phone Zap for Heat Relief

Keep the Pressure On Here

Thanks to all who participated in Friday’s phonezap action to bring heat relief to the brothers in Corcoran!

We got reports all day from people who were calling and emailing Corcoran officials and there’s no doubt the prison bosses felt the pressure. We’ve got word back already via a family member of someone inside:

Oakland IWOC: “So have you heard anything from your son yet?”

Anonymous: “Yes, It was Awesome!

I was waiting to talk to you to let you know what my son reported the last time I talked to him.

He said “Mom, I don’t know what you had going on out there but they came in to my cell and checked the temperature”…So, I hope to hear from him again to hear if they are actually making the necessary corrective actions, but they are taking us more serious now.

My son said to tell you & everyone else “Thank you!!” Him and all the other guys really appreciate everything that you are doing for them.”

Solidarity works.

Solidarity is simple, Heed the call.

“Inside, Outside! All on the same side!”
