Join Community Action on Prison Expansion (CAPE) to stop further mass incarceration in the U.K. through the development of a mega prison in Wellingborough.
Private company Kier is being paid £143 million to build the proposed prison, which will lock up over 1600 people.
Wellingborough is one of the areas most affected by job losses and other impacts of austerity. Whilst Kier has promised the prison will bring in new jobs, the introduction of exploitable prison labour is likely to threaten the jobs and wages of the local community.
Kier is profiting off exploitation of people in cages, most of whom will be working class; disproportionate numbers will also be Black and Brown, LGBTQ, and/or disabled.
We say: stop building prisons, let us build support for our communities!
Join the resistance:
to say you too believe we should build communities, not cages!
