Demand An End to Year Long Lockdown at Lieber Correctional

Call for phone-zap at Lieber Correctional in South Carolina to demand an end to the year long lockdown.

Lieber’s abuses of people incarcerated in their facility have effectively created a human-rights-free zone within their walls. Through the bars, voices of those in state cages are demanding an end to the lockdown that has kept the people incarcerated at Lieber Correctional confined to their small cells 24/7 for over a year now. To make an already horrific situation worse, the administration has covered all of the windows in the cells, denying the people inside access even to sunlight, not to mention no television, radio, tables, chairs, rec…Medical access that is slow – response and inadequate is also a violation.

South Carolina’s governor Henry McMaster has demonstrated his level of concern for the incarcerated masses in SCDC institutions by leaving them caged in a mandatory evac zone during and in the direct storm path of Hurricane Florence.

Captain Haney has demonstrated her level of concern for people who sustained life endangering injuries during outbursts of violence between prisoners which has been ushered in through the atmosphere of crushing tension and high anxiety that she, Warden Randall Williams and other complicit parties have created and exacerbate by continually withholding the most basic rights from those they imprison.  As a result of these transgressions, an inmate is currently in the intensive care unit clinging to life.

Horry County SC cops Joshua Bishop and Steven Flood have demonstrated their level of concern for the lives in their care, allowing Windy Newton, mother of 3, and Nicolette Green, mother of 4, to drown beneath their feet as they scurried to safety on top of the transport they used to dodge and disregard barricaded roads experiencing closures due to severe flooding.

Break these abuses out of the isolation of darkened prison cells and let’s mass amplify and pressure those in power who believe they are operating in a vacuum.  

End the lockdown. End restricted access.

With dignity and rage we will tear the prisons down.

IWOC

Members of the IWW have created the IWOC, the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, which functions as a liaison for prisoners to organize each other, unionize, and build solid bridges between prisoners on the inside and fellow workers on the outside. Prison is a setup, a big business, there to make money off the People. Neither the setup, nor the slavery inside of prisons can be combated without the conscious participation of prisoners and the working class on the outside through mutual aid, solidarity, and the building of working relationships that transcend prison walls and the politics of mass incarceration. The IWOC has been actively reaching out to prisoners while at the same time prisoners have been reaching out to the IWW for representation and assistance in building a prisoners union. The IWOC has taken up the cause and is helping prisoners in every facility organize and build a union branch for themselves, which will together form a powerful IWW Industrial Union.
