Demonstration Against Double Bunking at Twin Rivers Prison

About a dozen members of the outside community held a demonstration in front of the Twin Rivers Correctional Center on October 21st. The protest was sponsored by the Ethnic Minority and Prison Task Force (PO Box 667, Edmonds, WA 98020), and was called in an effort to draw attention to the following areas of concern:

The mandatory double bunking to T.R.C.C. prisoners.
The overall bias and mistreatment of prisoners, especially the African-American population.
Administrative impediment of outside volunteers and programs.
Abuses in the use of administrative segregation.
Poor medical service.
While prison officials at T.R.C.C. refused to meet wit protesters or to otherwise discuss the issues involve, word of the action reached prisoners at both T.R.C.C. and the nearby Reformatory. News of the demonstration substantially raised the spirits of prisoners at both institutions.
