Millions For Prisoners: A Day of Action with the Incarcerated (Press Release)

Millions For Prisoners: A Day of Action with the Incarcerated

August 19, 2017

Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee

The Call Has Been Issued

In Kansas City We Respond.

American slave labor is alive behind prison walls. This labor is the end result of a carceral state that entraps the poor, african american and latinx communities at an exponentially higher rate than others. It is extortionist, legally codified white supremacy in service to American Capitalism’s basest exploitation.

Last year, September 9th, marked the beginning of the “nationwide prison strike,” which catalyzed a wave of organizing, locally and nationally. We now have a level of national organization and communication that has not been seen before. On August 19 Jailhouse Lawyers Speak call for a day of action in solidarity with the incarcerated. Building this grassroots effort, initiated by JLS and by IWW members in prison, are the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, Free Alabama Movement, Free Ohio Movement, George Jackson University, New Abolitionist Movement, and many more. We stand together with those in prisons across the country.

Join The Millions for Prisoner March Here in K.C.

On August 19th From 5:30PM -8:30PM

At Ilus W. Davis Park, Downtown Between Locust and Oak on East 11th Street
