As the 2018 National Prison Strike quickly approaches, we have news of hunger and work strikes already underway. We have updates on the successful, 108 day hunger strike of Mapuche Shaman Celestino Cordova, who had been denied access to his ceremonial altar while in Chilean prison. We also get updates from Siddique Abdullah Hasan and Greg Curry on the hunger and work strikes happening at the Ohio State Prison.

Also in this episode, we give a broad overview of the 2016 National Prison Strike and its impacts on the prisoners who participated, and the ways various prisoners chose to be involved in it, which at the time was the broadest and longest-running prison strike in U.S. History.

Kite Line is a radio program devoted to prison issues around the Midwest and beyond. Behind the prison walls, a message is called a kite: whispered words, a note passed hand to hand, or a request submitted to the guards for medical care. Illicit or not, sending a kite means trusting that other people will bear it farther along till it reaches its destination. On the show, we hope to pass along words across the prison walls.
