All Out To Support The Prison Strike!

726

On August 21st, prisoners across the United States will begin a strike against prison slavery. This strike comes hot on the heels of the inspiring actions against ICE and the planned anti-fascist mobilizations in the first weeks of August. Not only are all of these struggles connected, but our best chances of succeeding in any of them are to build momentum across these different moments and beyond.

With this in mind, we’re collecting a list of solidarity actions and events going on to support the prison strike on the outside.
