Florida Inmates Strike (NV Radio)
< 1 day ago
Private-for-profit prisons: are they centers for healing and public safety or institutes for exploited labor? Learn about how inmates in Florida are going on strike and boycotting the canteens to put economic pressure on the Florida Department of Corrections, what they want to achieve (hint: their dignity in a dehumanized environment as well as some very concrete and achievable goals), and how you can support them. Karen Smith, of Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee in Gainesville, Florida, joins Stephanie, Michael, and Taylor on Nonviolence Radio. After speaking with Karen, we turn to more Nonviolence News, with a scoop direct from the Nonviolent Peaceforce, and some ideas for escalating actions post-Women’s march.
