After the news, we hear from Daniel McGowan, former political prisoner and member of the Certain Days Collective. Daniel’s been on the show before, talking to us about the Certain Days calendar – which is out now.
Later on in the episode, we talk to an organizer with the group Both Sides of the Wall. Alabama prisoners have been striking since September 26th. Prisoners at all 13 prisons in the Alabama department of corrections system went on labor strike, demanding improvement to conditions. This week we speak again with an outside organizer, who gives us updates on the situation. As we hear, the strike is now on hold- but they are still fighting on the inside and out.
