Eric King is an anarchist prisoner who was arrested in September 2014 after he carried out a solidarity action in support of the Ferguson Uprising. We speak today with his lawyer, Lauren Regan, about the harsh violence and repression he has faced in prison, culminating in trumped-up charges of assaulting a guard, charges which he just defeated in court. In further retaliation for his court victory, he is now being moved to a maximum-security facility with only two years left on his sentence. Regan speaks about the impunity- the wall of silence- that guards enjoy while viciously attacking prisoners.
His supporters are requesting that people call the Mid-Atlantic Bureau of Prisons Regional Office and request answers about why he is being punitively transferred. Check out his support page for more information.
