On September 9th the largest prison strike in history will sweep the USA. All over the world incarcerated workers and their allies will take action in solidarity. From Anarchist Prisoners in Greece lending their support in communiques and refusing to go to their cells to info nights and noise demos in the UK – inside and out people will be taking action.
The IWW’s Incarcerated Workers Organising Committee is calling for a communications blockade of Lend Lease on Friday the 9th of September.
In the UK we face massive prison expansion with 9 new mega prisons. Lend Lease is the main construction contractor for the North Wales Prison in Wrexham, which will be the second biggest in Europe, holding 2100 people in cages.
As well as being a Tory Party donor, Lend Lease recently attained notoriety when it was fined $54 million after a three year investigation by the FBI that proved that they had defrauded the public purse whilst working on projects in New York including the 9/11 Memorial and Grand Central Station.
This is your chance to stand in solidarity with those putting everything on the line in their fight against the prison industrial complex as part of this historic prison strike.
E-mail, Phone and Tweet Lend Lease what you feel about their profiteering from caging human beings.
