“I grew up poor in the south, in a trailer park, and I knew from the age I could start comprehending words, that this society had nothing for me…”

-Brianna, Co-Founder of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC)


In this episode of IGDCAST we talk with Brianna, one of the founders of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), which is a part of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), a revolutionary anti-capitalist union. Brianna discusses the recent Southern Speaking Tour, which was a tour organized by IWW and IWOC members which discussed workplace and prison organizing and worked to make connections between various cities and towns. Brianna speaks on growing up in the South, racism in the region when compared to the rest of the country, outside perceptions of the South and Southern people, the tour itself and some highlights, as well as an in depth look at the upcoming national prison strike which begins on September 9th.

It’s Going Down is a revolutionary media platform from anarchist, anti-fascist and anti-capitalist movements. We are a network of friends and comrades across so-called North America, who seek to provide news and analysis of when it goes down: riots, strikes, sabotage, occupations, expropriations, rebellion, revolt, insurrection, whether together or alone – we support liberatory revolt. We are a news website and not an organization who seek to uplift and build capacity for a wide range of social struggles, movements, and revolutionary groups.
