Episode 141: Attica again… 45 years later, national prison strike in up to 50 cities and 24 states… listen to the uncovering of an unspoken national tragedy …. It effects us all………TODAY!

Prison strike actions are anticipated beginning Sept 9, 2016 in federal, state and city prisons and jails, along with juvenile and immigrant detention facilities over the issue of forced slave labor allowed under the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution adopted in 1865 and vastly expanded under an Executive Order by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935. Slavery has now expanded from punishment into a program to train inmates in skill sets to employ them after their release but is actually a major for-profit enterprise used by some of the biggest Corporations in America to obtain labor at hourly rates not seen since 1865, in direct competition with small and midsize manufacturers who have terminated employees, lost revenues and even lost their business to the prison-industrial complex.  Listen at as Tim Grady and Lew Weiss interview Azzura Crispino, Media Coordinator for the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee who discusses the aspects of racism, prison slavery, direct competition with American manufacturing and the work stoppage action at dozens of prison and detention facilities across America where OSHA rules are not enforced to protect incarcerated slaves.
