@RobynElyse @WholeFoods @ATT @McDonalds @VictoriasSecret @BP_plc @Aramark @Walmart Here are 4 things 2 know about the nationwide strike:

1. The movement was created in response to a riot in a South Carolina prison that left at least 7 inmates dead in April 2018.

2. The strike began on a symbolic date that marks the 47th anniversary of death of Black Panther..
@RobynElyse @WholeFoods @ATT @McDonalds @VictoriasSecret @BP_plc @Aramark @Walmart leader George Jackson at San Quentin prison in California. The final day of the strike is slated for September 9. That date is also symbolic, chosen to coincide with day in 1971 when Attica Prison riots began in NY, which left 40 people dead before police stormed the facility...
@RobynElyse @WholeFoods @ATT @McDonalds @VictoriasSecret @BP_plc @Aramark @Walmart 3. It was organized by a group of incarcerated activists called Jailhouse Lawyers Speak and supported by the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), a prisoner-led trade group. They have put together a set of 10 demands to improve life in prison and the penal system...
@RobynElyse @WholeFoods @ATT @McDonalds @VictoriasSecret @BP_plc @Aramark @Walmart 4. The No. 1 goal is to put an end to what organizers call “modern-day slavery,” where inmates are paid incredibly low wages for their labor.Other demands include the immediate improvement of prison policies & rescinding laws that prevent prisoners from having a chance at parole.
