Houston: Speak-Out at Harris County Jail

Submitted to It’s Going Down

On September 10th Houston IWOC held a SPEAK OUT at the downtown Harris County Jail. Approximately 30 people attended chanting, giving speeches, and discussing the history of the Attica Prison Rebellion. The intention of the Speak-Out was to invite family members of those who are being held in the jail awaiting trials to speak with us about their experiences. Several people shared their frustration, anger, and pain of seeing the treatment of the ones they loved being incarcerated. Their grievances ranged from lack of medical care, to straight up brutality and murder inside the jail and prison walls. One person had just been released from jail when they joined the rally and shared their thoughts.

Houston stands with striking inmates! Motin!
