York CI protest04

Community organizers and prison advocates gather in the parking lot of a park next to York Correctional Institution in Niantic, Monday, April 13, 2020, for a car protest calling on Gov. Ned Lamont and the Connecticut Department of Corrections to release prisoners who are at risk of infection from the Covid-19 virus. The protest is one of a series the group will be staging this week at several prisons across the state. Later they moved the protest to the prison entrance where they chanted and honked their horns for several minutes before authorities asked them to leave. Cloe Poisson / CT Mirror.org
