People in jails and prisons have been subject to the worst this pandemic has to offer. It’s been made clear by the terrible conditions – that include forced labor as well as letting people die through negligence. However, even if you haven’t heard, people are fighting back.
Hunger strikes, uprisings, and other collective acts of rebellion have been methods people inside prisons, jails, and detention centers have taken up. Ultimately, they’re pushing back against the idea they should be left to die just because they’re locked up.
Black liberation means fighting for Black people being killed, tortured, and abused by a white supremacist criminal justice system. There’s nothing just about letting people be neglected, ignored, and left to die during a pandemic!
