advocates will be participating in teleconference calls on Monday, June 23, 2008 at 9:00 pm (EST) and Wednesday,
June 25th, same time, in order to discuss an approach to addressing the prison abuses, deaths, mail tampering, destruction,
deprivations and the writing up of unnecessary bogus misconduct to keep inmates in RHU/SHU status in American prisons.
The moderator will be Beverly Walters, MAPJEN. These conference calls will be an opportunity for organizations
nationwide to come together in unity to brainstorm and discuss the best approach to bringing these serious issues,
which the U.S. local, state and federal government obviously refuses to address, to the International (World Court,
Geneva Convention, U.N.) Sources. The teleconference call will also be an opportunity to work with other activist who
are working to address other non-related but serious issues of concern within America's penal system and its courts.
If you are interested in participating in the upcoming teleconference calls with advocates/activists across the country,
