This month’s show is dedicated to everyone locked down at Collins Bay. We discuss an upcoming public event reflecting on the Save Our Prison Farms campaign, flyering visitors at Collins Bay Institution about the U.S. Prison Strike, and a recent statement issued by the End Immigration Detention Network. We share a segment from Democracy Now with updates about the prison strike, and a poem submitted to our Facebook group. And of course, we play some music.

CPR hosts C and Reeko discuss the imminent U.S. Prison Strike. We play the initial call-out for the strike, Ohio prisoner Sean Swain’s statement in support of the strike, a poem by an outside organizer, as well as an original interview with a member of the Providence, Rhode Island chapter of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee.
