This is the second segment of a series of political discussions focused on building support for Jalihouse Lawyers Speak 2021 National call to action ‘Shut’Em Down” along with support for the 2022 National Prisoner’ Strike & Boycott.
In this segment “Interpreting Realities: Aligning Fragments Within the Prisoners Resistance Movement”, moderated by an organizer within the Resistance Movement, we hear from two Comrades located within the belly of the beast to discuss myths and misconceptions of the us prison structure and how these misconceptions create fragmented understandings about the prison-carceral state and forms of abolition. We also hear how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has further isolated prisoners from the outside world.
** This episode, including Sean Swain’s segment on the 50th anniversary of the Attica Prison Uprising and the massacre that follows, detail abuse and brutality against people in prisons, including of a sexualized nature, so listener discretion I advised **
