"Whereas, we, the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee of the IWW have heard their call for support and find the strike and its goals completely aligned with our material work and with all points of our Statement of Purpose,
Be it resolved, we endorse the strike, pledge our support and furthermore, embrace the work of solidarity."
Decarcerate Louisiana member broadcasts a video message from inside Angola prison on their goals to organize incarcerated people against the racist and exploitative nature of the prison system and society as a whole. This video and call to organize comes on the heels of Juneteenth and as momentum begins to build toward the national prisoner strike August 21-September 9.
Solidarity with those detained (children, women, and men) by immigration and Customs Enforcement and the families you are forcibly kept from. You are held in those for profit gulags, whose aims are to maintain a rotten nationalist- racist- capitalistic social order. The August 21st National Prison Strike called for strikes and boycotts in and against those so called immigration detentions for a reason, to acknowledge for the world that our struggles are not separate.
An organizing tool for the upcoming 2018 prison strike, this zine includes a spirited endorsement, important background on the lead up to this strike and lessons shared by prisoner rebels to keep in mind with this new round of coordinated resistance.
