TALLAHASSEE (Florida) – A man protested the conditions in prisons by wearing concrete in front of the Governor’s Mansion.
According to Tallahassee police, Jordan Mazurek, 28, said that he locked his arms and filled the PVC pipe with concrete before placing them in two 55-gallon containers. Mazurek was seen around 06:00 AM and was released from the concrete at 10:30 AM.
According to Mazurek, one of Mazureks gallons had written “Stop the massacre”. He was also covered in a mask.
Mazurek, a Texas sociologist and cofounder of the Campaign Against Toxic Prisons, is a co-creator. Mei Azaad spoke on behalf of the group, saying, “We didn’t organize the protest but we are aware what happened.” Azaad stated, “It was an action that showed those in power that our intentions were serious.” Our goal is to release the defenseless in prison.
The group’s website stated that the demonstration was due to the “worsening situation in Florida prisons” in a statement.
According to police, Mazurek was difficult to free. Kevin Bradshaw, a police spokesperson, stated that Mazurek refused leave the area and it was very difficult to get him out. He said that heavy equipment was used.
According to police, Mazurek will be charged with restricting access and penalized for blocking traffic.
A group of nearly 20 inmate rights advocates sang songs around the Capitol and Department of Enforcement this week. They demanded the release of the prisoners to ensure that the coronavirus epidemic doesn’t affect prisons.
