    In September, inmate strikes at U.S. prisons spread into what’s believed to be the largest prison strike in American history. In a coordinated protest against a range of prison conditions, a total of 24,000 inmates in at least 12 states refused to work or eat. Using a contraband cellphone, inmate Kinetic Justice spoke to VICE NewsAntonia Hylton about what led to strikes at Holman Correctional Facility in Alabama. “The conditions were so horrific and deplorable that sewage was actually coming up in the dormitory,” he explained.

The effort culminated in a mass refusal to report to prison jobs on September 9, the anniversary of the 1971 Attica prison uprising. “This is a call to action against slavery in America,” organizers wrote in anannouncement that for weeks circulated inside and outside prisons nationwide, and that sums up the strikers’ primary demand: an end to free prison labor. “Forty-five years after Attica, the waves of change are returning to America’s prisons. This September we hope to coordinate and generalize these protests, to build them into a single tidal shift that the American prison system cannot ignore or withstand.” Since Friday, details on the strike’s success have trickled out of prisons with some difficulty, but organizers and supporters have no doubt the scale of the action is unprecedented, though their assessment is difficult to verify and some corrections departments denied reports of strike-related activities in their states. Prisoners in 24 states and 40 to 50 prisons pledged to join the strike, and as of Tuesday, prisoners in at least 11 states and 20 prisons continued the protest, according to outside supporters in Alabama. Tactics and specific demands varied locally, with some prisoners reportedly staging hunger strikes, and detainees in Florida protesting and destroying prison property ahead of the planned strike date. “There are probably 20,000 prisoners on strike right now, at least, which is the biggest prison strike in history, but the information is really sketchy and spotty,” said Ben Turk, who works on “in-reach” to prisons for the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, a chapter of the Industrial Workers of the World union helping to coordinate the inmate-led initiative from the outside.”* Read more here: https://theintercept.com/2016/09/16/the-largest-prison-strike-in-u-s-history-enters-its-second-week/ Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, Ana Kasparian, Jimmy Dore *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

http://democracynow.org - Prison officials in Alabama have confirmed a group of correction officers refused to report for the evening shift Saturday at the Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore. The apparent work strike comes as guards have been walking off the job amid safety concerns and overcrowding throughout the summer. Prisoners say there are stabbings on a regular basis, and call the facility "The Slaughterhouse." We speak to incarcerated organizer Kinetik Justice and Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, founder and national president of The Ordinary People Society.

Please share your views with me on Twitter: @susanmodaress Across the United States, there is an emerging movement calling for the end to solitary confinement. Inmates in at least seven California prisons have been on a month-long hunger strike. The largest prison strike in California history, state prison officials call it a plot to relax controls on gang activity. However the prisoners say harsh conditions like overcrowding, deplorable health conditions, discriminatory treatment of people with illnesses are the cause. As of now, nearly 80,000 people are locked up in solitary confinement, sometimes upto decades. On this edition of Inside Out I talk to one of the lawyers of the hunger strikers, Ann Weills , Scott Paltrowitz of the Correctional Association of New York and Five Omar Mualimmak, a national activist and former inmate who was held in solitary confinement.
