Is Organizing Striking Prisoners The Next Occupy Wall Street?
We've caught word of a nationwide/international prison strike commemorating the 45th Anniversary of the Attica Uprising after the murder of Black Activist George Jackson in the early 1970's. There's been a few bleeps here and there but now appears to be a real grass roots organizing campaign across the US, Mexico, Brazil, Scotland, Wales, UK and Greece plan work stoppages inside many prisons.
The question posted online was, "how will we know if a prison strike will have any effect"? Then a few weeks ago stock holders began dumping their prison stocks in private prisons like Correctional Corporation Of America and stocks plummeted over night?
What we do know is 7 cell blocks in 5 prisons in Texas went on strike in April of this year letting the world know the "Free Texas Movement was down". A member of the Free Alabama Movement was interviewed by Amy Goodman on Democracy Now while in Solitary Confinement this summer.
So the question is, "is prison organizing the next Occupy?"
