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!
Join us & get involved
Info on transport coming soon!
A talk and workshop designed to help keep you safe and effective whilst protesting, and full of advice that also transfers well to non-protest interactions with the police.
What can the police order you to do?
What are your rights when stopped and searched?
When are your risking arrest – and what happens if you are arrested?
Built on legal advice from activist groups and legal firms, along with decades of shared real experience interacting with the police. This should be of use to everyone. From protest organisers, to people looking to attend their first demonstration.
Useful if you are planning on attending events such as our climate action https://www.facebook.com/events/232166077919459/ or this upcoming anti-arms trade action https://www.facebook.com/events/2980689138642911/
