Posted to the Internet Archive

We open with a few announcements and news tidbits.

Next we share a CKUT interview with Melissa Munn, a professor at Okanagan college in British Columbia and an activist who has been supporting prisoners for over two decades. They spoke to Melissa about the Penal Press project, which is digitizing newspapers produced in prisons in Canada since the 1950s.
We close with a Final Straw interview with a member of the organizing committee for the Anarchist Black Cross conference in Denver, Colorado. In this conversation they discuss the history of the Anarchist Black Cross, how the prison strike is informing this year’s conference and much more.
