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.
