Prison Strike!

in prisonstrike •  3 months ago

IF you have never been to prison, dear reader, you are not an authority on how things should go in one.
Sure, sure, you can say that nobody should get hurt there, that prisoners should be treated with respect.
But if you want to know what you are talking about when you say 'lock 'em up', or 'off with their heads', you should probably get some for yourself.
Until crapitalism stops farming our kids for beds in the cages, we shouldn't blame the kids for being in impossible situations.

Rule by force is the disease, who and how are symptoms.


Prison Strike 2018: Tipping the Scale of the Conversation

August 28, 2018

Prison, USA – A week into what’s expected to be the largest prison strike in United States history and word of mass strike participation is percolating outside the walls. Thousands of inmates in the world’s most jailed country are predicted to stop working, stop eating, participate in sit-ins, and boycott for-profit services to draw attention to what many call an exploitative and abusive system of modern slavery in the U.S. prison system.

In attempts to bring more context to the issue, Unicorn Riot has created a five part special on the 2018 Prison Strike. See part two – Prison Slave Labor: A Driving Force in 2018 Prison Strike

Direct actions, blockades, noise demos, call-ins, and networks of solidarity from people outside prison walls seem to have grown across the U.S. in the last couple of years, supporting prisoners and uplifting their voices.
On August 21, the first day of the 2018 Prison Strike, about 50 people, accompanied by a marching band, shot fireworks off the Juvenile Detention Center (JDC) in Minneapolis, Minnesota while incarcerated youth looked down at banners reading “End Prison Slavery“, “Fire to the Prisons“, and “Stillwater to Attica, Support Rebel Prisoners“.

How do prisoners strike? Do they do a walk out (of prison)? LOL


They stop doing the cleaning, cooking, and manning of the library.
Many prisons are working farms.
Our girls prison manages car tags.

How anyone doesn't wake up to the idea of a for profit prison is scary. Take another peek at how many are railroaded on lies, falsified evidence and ignored evidence and damn. Sadly, the government goes that extra step in undercover agents trying their best to create criminals so they can send more people to these slave camps.


Job security for cops, judges and guards.
Some of the worst folks you'd ever care to meet.


You forgot to mention the lying 'evil' prosecutors, as well.


Yep, they are the worst.
