Private Prison Divestment with Nation Inside


Download Podcast
Tonight on New Abolitionists Radio we hope to speak with Jamie Trinkle, who is the lead campaign manager on the Private Prison Divestment campaign promoted by Nation Inside.  The Private Prison Divestment Campaign was convened by Enlace in 2011. Last year, Nation Inside graciously offered to promote this campaign on their website, a consolidated online platform for community campaigns engaged in different pieces of the struggle against the prison industrial complex. Divestment was an important tool in ending the apartheid regime of South Africa and can be just as an effective tool in shutting down the private prison industry.

In other news...
Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Virginia is trying to get back lost federal dollars associated with holding federal prisoners. Whether it is a private company or an entity of government, big money is the name of the prison industrial complex game.

In the Overseer Chronicles, we will highlight the so-called War on Drugs and the 53 drug convictions dropped in Philadelphia because of corruption in the police drug units in the city.

Our profile in abolitionism is Leonard Andrew Grimes (1815-1873).
