End Solitary Confinement in New Zealand Prisons

Reason for signing

  • Our family is now on the 'inside' of the fence. How our eyes have been opened. How our ears have been opened. How our hearts have been struck by many emotions. How our minds have filled with questions...with frustrations...with utter sorrow. To place prisoners in Solitary Confinement surely serves only to delay rehabilitation progress, exacerbate already present health and well being concerns and enable prisons to justify 'operational requirements' .
