This week, we share an urgent statement from the Free Alabama Movement about their ongoing hunger strike and economic blackout. Afterwards, we speak with David Pellow, Fabiana Lake, and Camber Wilson, who recently coauthored a report on ‘Environmental Justice Struggles in Prisons and Jails Around the World,’ via the Prison Environmental Justice Project. Environmental justice is an even more important question now, as toxicity and health deficits render prisoners even more vulnerable to the ravages of the pandemic.
You can find their report here.
