aradioAuf der Seite des Anarchistischen Radios Wien könnt ihr zwei spannende Sendungen aus Mitte September 2016 zum Prison Strike in den Vereinigten Staaten nachhören…

18/09/2016 – Prison Strike: Against Slavery and White Supremacy!

On September 9th 1971, prisoners took over and shut down Attica, New York State’s most notorious prison. On September 9th 2016, prisoners started an action to shut down prisons all across the United States.

To every prisoner in every state and federal institution across this land, we call on you to stop being a slave, to let the crops rot in the plantation fields, to go on strike and cease reproducing the institutions of your confinement. This is a call for a nation-wide prisoner work stoppage to end prison slavery, starting on September 9th, 2016. They cannot run these facilities without us.”
