2015 marks the 40th annual Prisoners Justice Day, which began in commemoration of Eddie Nalon, a prisoner who bled to death in the segregation unit of Millhaven prison, in the Kingston area, on August 10, 1974. With the recent deaths of Abdurahman Ibrahim Hassan in Canadian immigration detention and Sandra Bland in a Texas jail, remembrance and action are as urgent and timely now as then.
