(en) Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Solidarity in the struggle of striking prisoners in US prisons by Greece Anarchist Federation

Date Wed, 29 Aug 2018 09:43:42 +0300


Prisoners and prisoners in at least 17 states in the US have planned to strike from August 21 to September 9 away from working in jail, organizing sedentary protests and boycotts, and hunger strikes to claim a series of demands summarized as follows: ---- 1. Improve both prison conditions and treatment of detainees and the current prisons policy. ---- 2. Remuneration of incapacitated workers equal to the salary determined by the respective state or territory to which the prison belongs. ---- 3. Abolish the Prison Litigation Reform Act and find an effective way of submitting complaints and complaints of violations of prisoners' rights. The abovementioned law, in force since 1996, was introduced in order to limit the large number of applications made by prisoners for the judicial settlement of violations of their rights by prison officers. ---- 4.The abolition of the Truth in Sentencing Act and the Sentencing Reform Act, which denied the possibility of suspending prisoners.
5. Eliminate the racist treatment of black prisoners involving bullied charges against them, the extensive sentences they are ordered to serve and the refusal to grant a suspension.
6. Termination of racist laws on criminal organization, targeting blacks and whites.
7. No deprivation of the right of access to the reintegration programs of detainees in the area in which they are imprisoned due to their being described as a violent offender.
8.Strengthening the funding of state prisons.
9. Resumption of study grants for prisoners across the United States.
10 . Recognition of the electoral rights of all detainees, defendants and those described as former convicts.

Detachment committees planned this strike for next summer. However, they decided to take immediate action after the bloody developments that occurred on April 15 in the Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina, where after 7 hours of improvised knives, 7 detainees (6 of whom were African Americans), they died and 17 others were seriously injured. Prisoners, as well as the expected medical assistance from the ambulance, never occurred, with the result that the prisoners involved in the engagement died of bleeding. Detainees complain that prison staff have deliberately put rival gangs on the same wing. Strike strike in US dollars is a move that seeks to address the oppression and degradation it harbors in US prisons, while domestic and international regime media are attempting to medicalize the cases of those who are imprisoned and to exaggerate with sensitivity and racism horizontal violence among prisoners rather than the vertical violence systematically exercised by the US State. and prison managers.

The start and end dates of the strike were targeted to highlight the historical continuity of matches in the US. for the abolition of slavery and the liberation of the Blacks. On August 21, 1831, Afro-American Natter Terner participated with other slaves in a major revolt that freed slaves from plantations and executed slave merchants. On September 9, 1971, the revolt in Attica began. The 1,200 prisoners captured three prisons by September 13, holding hostages of 38 prison officers, amnesty petitioners, and release of all political prisoners in the US. and the abolition of torture. New York State prisoner officer, Russell Oswold, however, failed to negotiate with prisoners, by ordering the immediate repression of the rebellion, which, after a military-type operation, eventually left behind 43 people (10 of them were prison officers, but they were killed by the police in accordance with the forensic decision, the prisoners had no firearms weapons) and 250 injured. The then president of the United States, Richard Nixon, promptly rushed to cover New York state republican governor Nelson Rockefeller. The upsurge in suppression of the rebellion was the outbreak of a wave of upheavals and clashes with suppressive forces in all of the US, particularly in the Black Sea communities. but they were killed by the police in accordance with the forensic decision, and the prisoners had no firearms) and 250 injured.

USA. are an illustrative example and live proof of how embarrassment can be transformed beyond an enforcement and control mechanism into an industry that generates enormous profits each year in private capital. USA. although they account for 5% of the world's population, account for 25% of the world's prisoners, or 2,000,000 prisoners, of which 10% are held in private prisons because the state is crowded. The privatization of American prisons dates back to the 1980s, with prime-ranging President-elect Ronald Reagan being elected to escalate rapidly in the 1990s by the Bill Clinton government, which, after making successive cuts in the number of federal civil servants, subsequently instructed the Ministry of Justice to assign prison management mainly to undocumented migrants to private contractors. Private prison companies are subsidized by the state with a fixed amount for each prisoner, regardless of the actual cost of keeping the prisoners. As you can see, these cunning drones in the free market are gathering money with the scoop eating from the public funds. Private CoreCivic Prison Management Company (formerly CCA), e.g. receives $ 90 a day for each prison prisoner, according to data presented by Bloomberg.

In August 2016, a few months before the election of the Trump, the US Department of Justice announced that it would gradually start to leave private prisons due to degraded conditions of detention and increased violence and why they did not actually offer substantial savings to state funds. But Trab, with his election, has overturned this policy, while at the same time proceeding to the further authorification of criminal provisions. The issue does not want so much thought. With the accumulation of detainees in private prisons, the state funds received by the prison management company are rising proportionally. Stricter criminal provisions mean more detainees in private prisons, so more money from government funds, the bulk of which will end up in the pocket of the individual and not in improving the conditions of detention. In CoreCivic's prisons, detainees are charged with an additional 30 days of punishment for each offense they commit in jail. This prolongation in serving the sentence means, of course, more revenue for the company.

The accumulation of capital from private prison companies is not, however, only parasitic. The 13th amendment to the US Constitution provides for the abolition of slavery and involuntary slavery, with the sole exception of a conviction for a crime, which shows that forced labor survives to date in US prisons, both prominent and sophisticated, marvelous capitalist paradise (mainly for the hunting of petty bourgeois dreams) and an alleged lighthouse of democracy and human rights. Of course, these slimy and antisocial compliments belong, as perceived, only to the propagators of bourgeois propaganda. At least 37 states have legitimized the exploitation of the labor force of detainees from companies setting up their productive activities in prisons. The working prisoners appear to be the immediate descendants of slaves. In private prisons, they are at best paid off with a devaluation of $ 1.25 per hour, a pay much lower than the basic salary, while the average hourly fee in state prisons is estimated at $ 0.20! There is not a small number of multinationals who have smelled the opportunity for quick and easy profits through the wrath of prisoners in the US, as their labor hands cost the same or cheaper (free of charge) than those of workers in countries of the so-called Third World, especially if one takes into account that strikes and trade unionization of detainees are in a weak dynamic, while the workers' compensations of the prisoners are also scarcely the same as their enrollment in the unemployment fund. Moreover, if state prisons do not comply with international human rights provisions, circumventing them in private prisons proves to be far more extensive.

Over the years, private prison companies have proven to be the most brave donors of US governments. We can mention some typical cases of misery, which among other things also demonstrate the obvious reasons for supporting these companies for election of Donald Trump. CoreCivic donated $ 254,000 to the Republicans and offered another $ 250,000 to celebrate the Trab election. For the same company, it is known to fund lobbying around Congress in exchange for stricter criminal laws that will fill prison cells more easily and for longer. The GEO Group also gave Republicans $ 1,000,000. End,

When talking about repression and imprisonment in the US we obviously can not speak outside the framework of racist policies that primarily target the black population. Blacks and Latins account for 60% of prisoners in US prisons. Generally, those who fill prisons are overwhelmingly those who are excluded and marginalized. The election of Trab was an encouraging development for the rise of extreme right, police repression, and diffuse racial and gender racism in the United States. Naturally, racism that ravages US-led society by state policies the walls and the bars of the prisons and is extinguished to the Blacks and the other marginalized social groups.

In US prisons the most prolific prostitution circuit has been set up in time, with prisoners imprisoned and gravitationalists who are trying to find the way for their release or redeem. In many states of the United States personal data and criminal record of detainees are freely circulated on the internet, with the result that pimples make entire lists with the women they intend to exploit. Puppies recruit their victims while they are in prison and re-re-engage in prostitution this time when they are released. Thus, in many cases, the release of female prisoners comes at the cost of violating their self-determination and the exploitation of women by trafficking. The more the prison is filled,

Prisons are the culprits of bourgeois democracy. These are the places where violence and the imposition of the dominant system are a daily routine for the incarcerated. They are the warehouses where all those who are left over from the productive design of capital, as well as fighters who are confronted with sovereignty, aim to overthrow it. In prisons, intensified processes of discipline, obedience and consolidation of sovereign social and productive relations are intensified. It is violent - or by using psychological and sometimes using physical violence - the detachment of prisoners' consent to the tyranny of the state and capital. At the same time, however, they are bullied out of the walls. They show them what awaits them if they think of putting them with their state, their capital and their auxiliary mechanisms.

In the prison of prisoners in the US. against the decriminalizing embassy that makes their lives behind the benches and the struggle of prisoners in Greek prisons against the new prisons and penal code that brings about the further autocraticisation of the conditions of imprisonment, we stand solidarity, recognizing the need of the prisoners to even in their prisoners. Much more, we recognize that prisons are the birthplace of the society of class divisions and state despotism. Prisons can remove people from the public sphere, especially from the lower social strata, but they do not in any case preserve any social pathogenicity, because that should mean the overthrow of state and capitalist barbarism, which, among other things, is responsible for the alienation of slave layers and social cannibalism. In the struggle for universal human emancipation and social self-management that we choose to give as anarchists and as a part of the social basis, we recognize the necessity of creating common struggles for the prisoners and the exploited and oppressed outside the walls because at the end of this difficult road, we seek to build a society of freedom, equality, solidarity and community, without prisons and coercion, putting the service at the forefront of collective human needs.
