This week we are honoring the anniversary of the Attica Prison Uprising of 1971. The current National Prison Strike began on August 21st, the anniversary of George Jackson’s assassination, and is slated to end in two days, on September 9th.
We have updates on the prison facilities across the country and their participation in the strike- including Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Texas, North Carolina, New Mexico, South Carolina, Kentucky, Washington, and more. We will continue to share these updates as they come in.
September 9th through 13th mark the days of the Attica Prison Uprising, and as prisoners across the country are currently involved in their own struggles, we take an in depth look back at what took place at this time 47 years ago.
Please join us next week for a recap of the National Prison Strike, and updates from the inside, including other calls from prisoners currently inside the South Carolina and Indiana prison systems.
