This post was originally published on this site

This week, we share important news from around the Midwest and more updates from the struggles in Louisiana’s immigrant detention centers.  Kevin ‘Rashid’ Johnson is facing threats on his life inside the Indiana Department of Corrections.  An abolitionist in Madison, Wisconsin has chosen to enter solitary confinement rather than violate his ethics and testify against other activists in a secret Grand Jury.  At Winn Correctional, in Louisiana, ICE detainees have risked retribution from guards to speak to Perilous Chronicle about indefinite confinement, poor conditions, and COVID-19 vulnerability.  We are grateful to Perilous for sharing this important story with us and our listeners.  You can find out more about Perilous’ efforts to document prisoner organizing across the U.S. at perilouschronicle.com.
