Tonight we feature two critical perspectives on the recent government announcement to re-introduce the prison farms program at Kingston-area prisons. The first is with Calvin Neufeld of Evolve Our Prison Farms who has been campaigning for plant-based agriculture and an animal sanctuary in place of the prison farm program. The second interview is with a member of End the Prison Industrial Complex, a Kingston-based prison abolition collective.
