here's a photo from the SHARC coalition's demo Friday morning, on the construction site of the proposed Chicopee Womens Jail. Don't miss the Boston action and press conference at the State House, THUR 11-1:30. I'll post updates here.

The photo is from the beginning of the demonstration, when some folks hadn't arrived yet. This was about 1/2 hour before the press conference at the jail site. This was on a main road between Chicopee and Springfield, and we got lots of approval from the people driving past -- horn honks, thumbs-up, and even raised fists.
SHARC can be contacted at 413-348-8234. There will be a similar action at the State House in Boston on Thursday April 28, approximately 11AM to 1:30 PM.
I don't know the exact time of the press conference in Boston. I'll add a comment to this article when I confirm the press conference time. I'm not one of the Sharc organizers but I'm a member of a group in the coalition (CCB).
