On September 9th 1971, prisoners took over and shut down Attica, New York State’s most notorious prison. On September 9th 2016, prisoners started an action to shut down prisons all across the United States. Prisoners from across the United States have released this call to action for a coordinated prisoner work stoppage against prison slavery:
“Slavery is alive and well in the prison system, but by the end of this year, it won’t be anymore. This is a call to end slavery in America. This call goes directly to the slaves themselves. We are not making demands or requests of our captors, we are calling ourselves to action. To every prisoner in every state and federal institution across this land, we call on you to stop being a slave, to let the crops rot in the plantation fields, to go on strike and cease reproducing the institutions of your confinement. This is a call for a nation-wide prisoner work stoppage to end prison slavery, starting on September 9th, 2016. They cannot run these facilities without us.”
