Protest Corporate Torturers! - In the latest example of the privatized war to privatize Iraq's resources, CACI Inc.'s employees have been implicated in the Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal. With at least $45 million in contracts for "intelligence work" in Iraq, CACI is profiting as it participates in the torture of Iraqi prisoners, 70-90% of whom were arrested by mistake.
Meanwhile at home, the same soldiers guilty of torturing Iraqi prisoners have worked as guards in the U.S. prison system. Muslim, Arab and South Asian detainees rounded up since 9/11 have been tortured and abused in custody. Recent scandals at the California Youth Authority -- the state's prison system for youth -- have shown the systematic abuse of children held there.
Come out and show that the Bay Area has no tolerance for torture, at home
