Black Agenda Report Interviews Prison Strike Organizers with Jailhouse Lawyers Speak

The death of 7 inmates in fighting at South Carolina’s Lee correctional facility “is an indictment on the nation as a whole,” said Brother Dee, of Jailhouse Lawyers Speak, in an interview with Black Agenda Radio producer Kyle Fraser. Inmates with the prison slavery abolition movement have put forward a list of ten demands, including the outlawing of work without pay and a rollback of repressive prison laws and practices that “have been designed to dehumanize us as well as make us feel hopeless,” said Akin Yele, of Unheard Voices OTCJ.
