Prisoners striking in 17 states over conditions

Prisoners striking in 17 states over conditions | 18 Aug 2018 | Prisoners across 17 states are planning to strike for nearly three weeks starting later this month to protest prison conditions, Vox reports. The demonstrations are planned to take place from Aug. 21 to Sept. 9, marking the anniversary of a bloody prison uprising in upstate New York in 1971. Protesters are "demanding humane living conditions, access to rehabilitation, sentencing reform and the end of modern day slavery," according to the website for the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC).
