5th Annual Shut Down the Stewart Detention Center Vigil

On November 18, 2011 from 10 A.M. until noon the annual "Shut Down the Stewart Detention Center Rally" will be taking place. This is a partnership between several organizations including the SOA Watch that is coordinated and put together by the great folks over at the Georgia Detention Watch.

The 270 View put together a short video to help publicize the event which can be seen above. The vigil is currently looking for former detainees, family members or ex-CCA or ICE employees from the Stewart Detention Center who might be interested in speaking about the abuses they saw taking place there. You can contact Anton Flores directly or(706) 302-9661 if you are interested in possibly speaking or need further information.

The song is "Can We Go Home Now" by the immensely talented Shaji.
