  • VICE News Tonight: Inside The Prison Strikes Rippling Across The Country

    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. Then Holman’s correctional officers joined in the action to address overcrowding and understaffing, staging a protest of their own with nearly a dozen quitting or going on leave.

"These strikes are our methods of challenging mass incarceration, as we understand the prison system is a continuation of the slave system, which is an economic system," says Kinetik Justice, who joins us by phone from solitary confinement in Holman Correctional Facility. He is co-founder of the Free Alabama Movement and one of the organizers of the strike. He says organizers tried petitioning their conditions via the courts and lawmakers, but when...

    Marwan Barghouti is seen as a potential Palestinian president, but he's serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison. Now, he's leading a hunger strike by about a thousand Palestinian inmates. Barghouti says they're only drinking water with salt to protest what they call arbitrary arrests and inhumane treatment. Since then, Israeli prison officials have cracked down on the detainees, confisicating personal items and transferring some prisoners into solitary confinement. Israel denies any wrongdoing, and dismisses the strike as a political ploy. In the past, Barghouti has called for a Third Intifada. And now, Fatah has called for a Day of Rage.

US prisons are forcing slave-like labor for next to no pay. This has caused the largest prison labor strike in the history of the country. Corporate media is in absolute blackout mode. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, Ana Kasparian, and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/join "THE LARGEST PRISON strike in U.S. history has been going on for nearly a week, but there’s a good chance you haven’t heard about it. For months, inmates at dozens of prisons across the country have been organizing through a network of smuggled cellphones, social media pages, and the support of allies on the outside. 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 - The largest prison work strike in U.S. history has entered its third week. Organizers report that as of last week at least 20 prisons in 11 states continued to protest, including in Alabama, California, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, South Carolina and Washington. The Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee says at one point about 20,000 prisoners were on strike. With protest has come punishment. Several facilities have been put on lockdown, with prisoners kept in their cells and denied phone access both before and during the strike. Organizers have also been put in solitary confinement.

http://democracynow.org - We go behind bars to get an update on the end of a 10-day strike by Alabama prisoners to protest severe overcrowding, poor living conditions and the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which bans slavery and servitude “except as a punishment for crime,” thus sanctioning the legality of forced, unpaid prison labor. "These strikes are our methods of challenging mass incarceration, as we understand the prison system is a continuation of the slave system, which is an economic system," says Kinetik Justice, who joins us by phone from solitary confinement in Holman Correctional Facility. He is co-founder of the Free Alabama Movement and one of the organizers of the strike. He says organizers tried petitioning their conditions via the courts and lawmakers, but when they were unsuccessful, "we understood our incarceration was pretty much about our labor and the money that was being generated from the prison system, therefore we began organizing around our labor and used it as a means and a method to bring about reform in the Alabama prison system."

Using cell phones to communicate, they named December 9th as the strike day, and refused to leave their cells, or perform any work. University of Baltimore's Jeffrey Ian Ross explains if the prisoners will really get their way.

Marwan Barghouti is seen as a potential Palestinian president, but he's serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison. Now, he's leading a hunger strike by about a thousand Palestinian inmates. Barghouti says they're only drinking water with salt to protest what they call arbitrary arrests and inhumane treatment. Since then, Israeli prison officials have cracked down on the detainees, confisicating personal items and transferring some prisoners into solitary confinement. Israel denies any wrongdoing, and dismisses the strike as a political ploy. In the past, Barghouti has called for a Third Intifada. And now, Fatah has called for a Day of Rage. So is this strike just a peaceful protest, or a way to revive resistance behind bars?

Across the country, inmates, often paid little or nothing for their labor, are going on strike demanding better treatment, pay, housing conditions and medical care. The strikes began on the 45th anniversary of the 1971 Attica Prison uprising in New York. RT America has coverage of the strikes with RT’s Ashlee Banks, Brigida Santos, and Marina Portnaya reporting on what the inmates want to see changed in prisons across the country. Then RT America’s Simone Del Rosario talks with Azzurra Crispino of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, who says private corporations are the ones that benefit from the prison labor industry.
