NO MORE to Mass Incarceration
Taking the Fight to Sites of Outrages and Outbreaks

May 19, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper |


As we build up to the October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, we will be taking the fight to stop the slow genocide of mass incarceration to key sites of outrages committed by the criminal "injustice" system and of outbreaks of struggle against these outrages. As part of doing this we are fleshing out a proposal to go to places like:

Alabama's Tutwiler Prison for Women. The U.S. Department of Justice found prisoners at Tutwiler Prison endured all manner of humiliation, including male officers forcing women into sexual acts, openly watching women shower and use the bathroom, and more. Yet the DOJ has done nothing more than launch further investigation.

Menard prisoners on hunger strike. Prisoners in the High Security Unit at Menard Correctional Facility in Chester, Illinois, went on hunger strike on January 15, 2014, to protest their placement and conditions of confinement. They have faced ongoing retaliation.

Albuquerque, NM. An epidemic of police murders of unarmed civilians has enraged the entire community into a storm of resistance drawing national attention.

Immigrant detention centers. A massive program of criminally prosecuting undocumented immigrants has been hidden from public view. Thousands languish in federal, and privately run, "detention centers."

Join us for a summer of taking the fight to stop mass incarceration to the sites...
