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 August 21 to September 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).

The article goes on to state the following:

“Every single field and industry is affected on some level by prisons, from our license plates to the fast food that we eat to the stores that we shop at. So we really need to recognize how we are supporting the prison industrial complex through the dollars that we spend,” Amani Sawari, a spokesperson representing organizers of the protests, told Vox.

  1. To damn bad if they feel their treatment is inhumane. The ACLU will take up their cause again and get them more benefits that many Americans don’t have, especially the homeless. If you are in prison it is because you did something illegal and sent there. If you don’t like being there then don’t be a criminal, end of subject!
