Hell in Paradise Tonight at the Omni in Oakland

Pelican Bay State Prison is one of the largest prisons in our state. With close to 3 thousand men, and more than a third kept in solitary confinement, this prison is one of California’s most notorious for its unjust treatment of folks inside.

Join us tonight at the Omni in Oakland, for a performance of Hell in Paradise: My Visit to Pelican Bay State Prison.  A play written and preformed by Charlie Hinton, based off the prison letters of Clyde Jackson.

Hell in Paradise screening & Panel Discussion
The Omni, 4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland
Friday November, 14, 7pm 

Followed by a panel discussion on Prisons: Budgets, Conditions and Resistance:

  • Danny Murrillo – UC Berkeley student and imprisoned at Pelican Bay SHU
  • Emily Harris – Californians for a Responsible Budget (CURB)
  • Annie Kane – Human Rights Pen Pals

 The event is free and is being hosted by the Bay Area Public School. I am looking forward to joining activists and the greater community in conversations on carceral California.
