On the Anniversary of #OperationPUSH, Support Prison Strikers Facing Repression
Last year today, over 160 groups signed on in support of #OperationPUSH demands, adding their voice to Florida prisoners demanding dignity, justice and a recognition of their continued humanity despite convictions.
Since the national prisoner strike of September 2016, prisoners across Florida have been throwing consistently down against the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC) administration as part of an international movement to end prison slavery. From major uprisings to the daily acts of defiance in defense of human dignity, prisoners in FL have captured headlines and inspired solidarity.
We are taking a next step in that struggle, bringing in power from supporters outside to cancel prison labor contracts with government agencies. Will you join us again?
On Jan 22, we will pack the Alachua County Commission in defense of their decision to end their contracts with FDOC slave labor. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/583860068705222
Even if you can't make it out on Jan 22, you can send commissioners an email right now to help us build momentum, by using and sharing this link:
