Week two for the largest prison strike in US history


As many as 20,000 US prisoners are going into their second week on strike against forced labor and inhumane prison conditions, though the US prison system has locked down the centers of the strike, denied all conduits for information, and put the leadership into solitary confinement.

The strike commemorates the anniversary of the Attica Prison Uprising, and though it’s hard to know exactly what’s going on inside – thanks to the control exerted by America’s jailers – the news that’s trickled out is both inspiring and worrying.
