NYC-DSA Statement on MDC Occupation 

NYC DSA stands in solidarity with the incarcerated people at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

It is a major contravention of human rights that these incarcerated people have been denied heat, food, medical services and clean clothes since early last week.

No person should be subjected to these conditions. We demand these human rights be restored to those imprisoned at MDC.

As Socialists, we fight for a radical transformation of our society so that all people are treated with dignity and humanity. We encourage all members and allies to join the occupation outside the prison and demand justice for all those inside.
