America's prisoners are going on strike in at least 17 states
VOX - by German Lopez
Incarcerated Americans are often forced to work for cents an hour. So they’re launching what could be their biggest protest ever. America’s prisoners are going on strike.The demonstrations are planned to take place from August 21 to September 9, which marks the anniversary of the bloody uprising at the Attica Correctional Facility in New York. During this time, inmates across the US plan to refuse to work and, in some cases, refuse to eat to draw attention to poor prison conditions and what many view as exploitative labor practices in American correctional facilities.
