Originally published to It’s Going Down

On September 9th, people all over the world answered the call for a strike against prison slavery. Prisoners all over the U.S. began hunger and work strikes, while on the outside supporters took action to express their solidarity. However, despite outside support quieting down significantly after the first weekend, prisoners continue to struggle fiercely against their conditions.

Three weeks into the strike, a call was published for renewed actions in solidarity with the prison strike. While it emphasized the arbitrary nature of any particular day or week of action, for simplicity’s sake the authors suggested October 15th-22nd as the week to concentrate actions.

This page will collect actions in solidarity with the prison strike that took place around this time frame, regardless of whether they were inspired by this particular call or not. You can view a list of events planned for the week here, and remember you can submit communiques anonymously to It’s Going Down here.
