Chicano Mexicano Prison Project (CMPP)
Conference On Raza Prisoners
Bulletin No. 1, May 1, 2005


On June 18, the Chicano Mexicano Prison Project (CMPP) will organize its'
annual Conference On Raza Prisoners On Colonialism. This year's conference will
be held in Los Angeles, Califaztlan. Location, Theme, Objectives/Focus, and
Conference Agenda will be announced in next CMPP bulletin.

The CMPP was founded in 1993 and is a member of the Raza Rights Coalition, a
coalition under the leadership of Union del Barrio. For over 10 years, the
CMPP has been in the forefront of the struggle for the human rights of Raza
prisoners and in educating our communities to the role that the prison system
plays in the oppression and colonization of La Raza.

The prison conferences have served as "centros" for Raza prison activists to
come together to (1) share and learn from each other's experiences, (2)
movement forward importance of organization to our struggle and consolidate the
network of prison activists, (3) connect the question of prisons to the Mexican
national liberation struggle, and (4) to unite with all progressives forces in
the fight against the capitalist-imperialist globalization of prisons as
institutions of social control and profit making.
