Alright I'm going to make a thread on solid #PrisonStrike2018 articles today.

So given the number of reporters we've talked to about #PrisonStrike2018 who have never covered prisoner resistance before and in many cases have little to no experience writing about prisons, I'm making a list of writers I suggest editors try to commission for pieces (thread) First is my mentor @bsonenstein who sets the bar in writing about prisoner resistance.

Abolition does not require a new system of racialized control and the hyper exploitation of labor to come and replace the old. In fact, that's not abolition.
