Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report National Edition 26:15 Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash ****************** Hundreds Rally Against Prison Industrial Complex And Mass Incarceration at the Lincoln Correctional Facility in West Harlem â THE NEW JIM CROW!
The Occupy Wall Street Prisoner Solidarity Subcommittee along with hundreds of allies heeded Occupy Oakland's call to action and marched in solidarity with Pelican Bay prisonerâs hunger strike protest, with brothers and sisters who are dispossessed by the criminal INJUSTICE system, with immigrant detainees and with political prisoners everywhere. They raised their voices against the growth of the privatization of the prison system and mass incarceration â the New Jim Crow. The characterization of the system of mass incarceration as the New Jim Crow raises the racist nature of the prison system, pointing out that between 1970 and 1995, the jailing of African Americans increased seven fold. African Americans make up 12% of the U.S. population - and 53% of the nation's prison population. There are more African Americans enslaved under correctional control today - in prison or jail; on probation or parole - than there were in 1850. *************************************** Please email Building Bridges if you are broadcasting our National Edition.
