Anti-torture petition drive winds down

The Black Bird Collective's eight-week petition drive gathering opposition to torture and human-rights abuses in the Maine State Prison will close tonight with an evening talk about Maine prison conditions, international human-rights laws, and the collective's efforts to support anti-torture legislation in Maine and at the federal level.

It'll be at the Philippi Hall lounge, on the Gorham campus of the University of Southern Maine,  from 6 to 7 pm. Admission is free.
