The PUSH against prison slavery

“The prisoners are revolting again, folks. After the wave of strikes launched on the 45th anniversary of the Attica Prison riots and the August 19th strikes of this past year, inmates in Florida are planning another strike starting on January 15th, 2018 on Martin Luther King Day. On that day, in what has been dubbed Operation PUSH, inmates across Florida will refuse to do any work until their demands are met. … With prison slavery explicitly written into the very amendment we were always told ended slavery, it is high time we put an end to a practice that was never abolished but rather hidden away behind bars.” (01/11/18)
