Allan Gardens Park and Conservatory
August 10th is Prisoners' Justice Day (PJD), a day that commemorates all of those people who have died behind prison walls. On the inside, prisoners fast and refuse to work, both to honour the dead and to protest the horrible conditions that lead to so many deaths in custody.

Please come to Allan Gardens on August 10th to stand in solidarity with prisoners on this important day, and to raise awareness about the lack of access to harm reduction in prisons/jails that has led to an overdose crisis.

The event will be happening from 1 to 4 and will include:
*opening ceremony by Wanda Whitebird
*drumming circle
*speakers
*open mic
*harm reduction kits and PJD shirts will be available
*food will be provided for those not fasting
