RAM-NYC Bails out Youth
This September, as part of our community bail fund, RAM NYC bailed out a young man from one of the city’s jails. Locked up on ludicrous charges designed to rob the city’s poor, the predatory state used previous arrests as a pretext for incarceration, showing once again that these laws are designed to put certain people in shackles. The bailout provides a reprieve from state bondage. He is now home and can fight this case.
It is our hope that this small bail fund will allow a few people to escape the horrors of incarceration for long enough to fight back against the racist charges that put them inside.
Solidarity with all those imprisoned at the hands of state! Until all are free!
