Wednesday is a Prisoner Solidarity Call-in Day!

From Chapel Hill Prison Books:

Hello friends and comrades,

This Wednesday there is a national call in day to the warden of Central
Prison in Raleigh and also the NC Director of Prisons about there cruel
and unusual treatment of 8 prisoners who engaged in a sit down strike
against atrocious working conditions. Their numbers as well as a script
for some talking points are below. Pressure campaigns like this let the
people in charge of prisons know that their indifference and cruelty are
not invisible and they can't destroy people with impunity. Your call will
make a difference.
For more details and background on the case please see:

Until Every Cage Is Empty,
the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective

"Hi My name is ____ and I'm calling to express deep concern about the
treatment of 8 prisoners sentenced to I-Con for their role in a peaceful
sit-down strike in the kitchen at Central Prison in Raleigh on December

These prisoners were expressing their deep frustration at the forced, long
hours of their work; rather than even acknowledge their grievance, they were
threatened with violence and are now effectively in solitary.
It is absolutely unacceptable to use solitary confinement or segregation
as a form of political intimidation. I demand that you free these 8
prisoners back into general population, and address their labor grievances
immediately, and I'll continue to support them and spread news of their
struggle however possible."
