The lines between the digital and the physical blur everyday. The way we communicate and organize is intimately bound up in the technology we use. The digital platforms we are on are shaping the way we work, learn, communicate and socialize. What and how we use technology is a critical component of revolutionary organizing.
Theory and Strategy
Articles and essays contributing to prison abolition theory and strategy.
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.

On Aug. 11, white supremacists rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia, against the removal of the statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. In the wake of that rally, which turned deadly when a rally-goer plowed his car into a group of counter-demonstrators, killing one and injuring 19 others, calls across Amerika to remove Confederate monuments have intensified.
An article from Bennu Hannibal of the Free Alabama Movement about their strategy for 2018.
The weekend of August 19 2017, amid the second nationwide inside/outside mass protest against prison slavery in as many years, Jacobin Magazine published an article against prison abolition entitled How to End Mass Incarceration by Roger Lancaster. Jacobin caught a lot of deserved flack from abolitionists on social media for it. Numerous scholars, organizers and journalists decried Lancaster's article, creating such an online storm that Jacobin decided to publish a response article entitledWhat Abolitionists Dopenned by Dan Berger, Mariame Kaba and David Stein. Unfortunately, this response fails to fully critique Lancaster's arguments and instead sells other abolitionists out.
