Prison Labor a Driving Force in Prison Strike!

Prisons are the last place for folks to go for help from the gov't, if they haven't gotten with the program by then, they probably never will.
Maybe we should change the program, it isn't working for large swaths of the population.

For my dear readers that haven't had the pleasure of contesting any charges in court, I highly recommend learning the Marcratic Method.

This Method is not hard to learn, it takes but a few minutes, but like anything to do with the law, the more you know the better your odds.

Prison Slave Labor: A Driving Force in 2018 Prison Strike

August 29, 2018

Prison, USA – One of the primary demands of the 2018 nationwide prison strike is the abolition of prison slavery.
The legal framework of the current system of prison slavery in America is upheld by the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which allows for slavery “as punishment for crime”.
While the 13th Amendment ended chattel slavery, organizers of the nearly three-week-long prison strike are demanding that all slavery is ended and working prisoners get paid “the prevailing wage in their state.”

But, if they followed the law and the constitution,
the prison industrial complex would go broke!

If people just stopped taking plea deals, the entire in-justice system would grind to a halt.

This is the world we live in, where you are guilty, and the only reason you aren't in prison is merely because there aren't enough cops, lawyers and prisons to get to you yet.

One of the rules for radicals is to make them follow their own rules.

Not enough people realize this.
