The Rock


The Rock
«скала», тюрьма Алькатрас (Alcatraz) на острове вблизи Сан-Франциско. В 1963 г. тюрьма была закрыта из-за дороговизны ее содержания, а с 1973 г. открыта для посещения туристов. В 1980 г. она была захвачена и удерживалась около месяца группой индейцев в знак протеста против вопиющих нарушений американским правительством договоров, ранее заключенных с индейцами, захвата их земель, политики геноцида в отношении коренного населения Америки.
