Kite Line- December 20, 2019: Counterinsurgency on the Inside

This post was originally published on this site

On our show this week, we hear from Dennis Boatright, a co-organizer with MAPS- Michigan Abolition and Prisoner Support. Boatright presents ‘From Convict to Inmate’, tracing the counter insurgent and repressive measures- such as isolation, book restriction, and even the colors used within the facilities- used by the Michigan Department of Corrections to neutralize and depoliticize prisoners. He spoke about his time behind prison walls, along with some of his research at the recent Bend the Bars conference in Lansing, Michigan.
