The Industrial Workers of the World’s (IWW) Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) is excited to announce our first Incarcerated Workers Industrial Union 613 branch application. The charter is currently being reviewed by the IWW's General Executive Board. When approved, this will be the first ever IU613 Branch in IWW history.
On January 15th, in lieu of our regular letter writing hours, a group of fellow-workers from the Tidewater IWW took to the streets in love and solidarity with the #OperationPUSH strike in Florida. We held a banner and handed out flyers and literature to raise awareness about the strike, prison conditions, and prison struggle both locally and nationally.

A Statement by Haitian Prisoners on Operation PUSH.
As prisoners in Texas, we have to grab the bull by the horns and take control of our own destiny. Free world supporters can’t do this for us. They can help, but ultimately the grassroots organizing, and effort must be done by us.
