Prison Protest

June 27, 1986

I am against having a prison built in my community. I live in Boyle Heights, less than three miles from the site. More than 600 of us in the community voiced our outcries less than a month ago at the proposed prison site; yet the politicians continue to ignore our voices. No other community has had to fight so fiercely a battle against the prison. Is it because we are Latinos? Is it because Assembly Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco) and Gov. George Deukmejian are set in having the prison built in East Los Angeles?
