Prison resistance has been building over the last several years, culminating in a nationwide strike starting on September 9. Tens of thousands of incarcerated workers in at least a dozen states staged coordinated protests calling for an end to prison slavery.
These workers took great risks in demanding basic rights, and many have been put in solitary, seen their food withheld and their communication restricted. Many have faced torturous conditions for asserting their humanity.
Join us in writing letters of support to these prisoners, letting them and the authorities know we are still with them on the outside. A representative of the DC IWW Incarcerated Worker Organizing Committee will tell us more about the campaign and update us on the latest news from inside the walls.
