Continuing a tradition of confrontational noise demonstrations at correctional facilities in Atlanta, GA, dozens of people converged last night on the DeKalb County Jail to offer a small gesture of support, disruption, and solidarity with all those struggling against the American prison nightmare.
We do this for our friends, family and loved ones currently facing repression, in anticipation of the national prison strike set to occur on September 9th, and to show our comrades currently in revolt in Alabama and elsewhere that they are not alone in the fight against slavery and domination.
The weekend of May 7-8 saw solidarity actions with the Free Alabama Movement’s May Day strike in at least three cities across the US. Making this work stoppage a national issue, raising public awareness of prison slavery, and shaming the state of Alabama and ADOC for their abysmal practices are good ways to support the actions on the inside. Please consider organizing an event, a rally, or workshop in your town. If you do, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
