Read the Announcement of the Nationally Coordinated Prisoner Workstoppage for Sept 9, 2016 at https://iwoc.noblogs.org/post/2016/04/01/announcement-of-nationally-coordinated-prisoner-workstoppage-for-sept-9-2016/

Excerpt from statement – Our protest against prison slavery is a protest against the school to prison pipeline, a protest against police terror, a protest against post-release controls. When we abolish slavery, they’ll lose much of their incentive to lock up our children, they’ll stop building traps to pull back those who they’ve released. When we remove the economic motive and grease of our forced labor from the US prison system, the entire structure of courts and police, of control and slave-catching must shift to accommodate us as humans, rather than slaves.

National Prisoner Strike Is Happening Now…Can It Bring An End To Penal Slavery?

A National Prisoner Strike started September 9th, the 45th anniversary of the day that prisoners took over Attica Prison in New York. Many will say how can they strike, they don’t have a job but prisoners do most of the work to keep the prisons they are incarcerated in running. They work in the kitchen, the laundry, in the barbershop, they clean the common areas and cells alike, repair the plumbing, do the carpentry and much much more. The fact is the institutions run on the slave labor of the “duly convicted”. This strike is a demand to end the penal slavery of today’s prison industrial system.

Many well known and profitable private sector industries benefit from labor cheaper than any offshore destination. Some of the consumer goods and services that you buy are produced by prisoners and sold by major corporations like MacDonalds, Wendy’s, Whole Foods, Starbucks, Walmart, Sprint, Verizon, Fidelity Investments, JC Penny’s, KMart, American Airlines, Avis and many many more. You can find out at https://www.popularresistance.org/identifying-businesses-that-profit-from-prison-labor/

The authorities in institutions across the nation have responded to this strike with lock downs, denying phone privileges, denial of visitors, putting strike leaders in isolation, and more. These actions have made it difficult to find out what is happening in these prisons, but information has been filtering out. Today hosts Keith Brown El and Jeff Humfeld are joined by Peter, Brianna and Karl and a striking prisoner of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee of the IWW.

Pythia Peay, author of America on the Couch, returns with a discussion about integrity…or the lack thereof…during our current political season.  Host David Mitchell and Ms Peay will discuss the work of San Francisco Jungian analyst John Beebe.

Brian Steed is a military historian and Mideast specialist at the U. S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth. On this 15th anniversary of 9‐11, Brian will posit that to defeat ISIS, we need to be􀆩er understand their centuries old beliefs, wrapped in a philosophy of violence.

Attorney Jeff Haas: Bakken Pipeline Construction Temporarily Halted

Last week the US government announced that the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River in North Dakota near Sioux Indian lands had been voluntarily suspended. In a joint statement the Department of the Interior, which interacts with Native Americans, the Department of Justice,and the Army Corps of Engineers, which had granted the permit for construction, announced that a reconsideration of the process whereby the US government receives input from Native Americans was under examination. So, the fight about water and human rights continues.

Guest – National Lawyers Guild Attorney Jeff Haas, has just returned from living at the North Dakota encampment with thousands of Native Americans and climate change activists who gathered in solidarity with the Standing Rock Indian tribe in North Dakota to protest the pipeline construction. Jeff Haas was a founding partner of the Peoples Law Office in Chicago. He victoriously represented the family of Fred Hampton, the chairman of the Chicago Black Panther Party and proved that Hampton was assassinated by the FBI and Chicago Police Department. He s also author of the book The Assassination of Fred Hampton.

U. S. Commission on Civil Rights: Peaceful Coexistence

Recently the U. S. Commission on Civil Rights issued a report called “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Non-discrimination Principles With Civil Rights “.
The report discusses how religion is used to deny others’ equality. The commission’s chairman Martin Castro wrote that the phrases “religious liberty” and “religious freedom ” are code words hypocritically employed to support discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, and Christian supremacy.

Guest – Columbia Law Professor Attorney Katherine Franke about the commission’s findings and recommendations and the objections to the reports conclusions. Katherine Franke is the chair of the board of the Center for Constitutional Rights. She is the Sulzbacher Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, and also the Faculty Director of the Public Rights/Private Conscience Project, a think tank that brings legal academic expertise to bear on the multiple contexts in which religious liberty rights are in tension with other fundamental rights to equality and liberty. Her book is titled “Wedlocked: The Perils of Marriage Equality”.


Ray McGovern: Surveillance, Terrorism, CIA, Manufactured War

Fifteen years have passed since the criminal attack on September 11, 2001. Today we’ll take a look at some critical changes this country has undergone since. Believing he was doing God’s will, President George W. Bush ordered airstrikes against Afghanistan and then, with intelligence cooked up to fit the plan, brought shock and awe to the people of Iraq, killing and and displacing more than 1 million people. The authorization to use military force that he procured from a frightened Congress is still used as a rationale for overseas war. Obama is the only president in American history that has fought wars for the entire eight years of his presidency. Currently the United States is at war in seven different countries. At home, draconian legislation such as Patriot Act was quickly passed even though it wasn’t read by most members of Congress. The surveillance budget of the CIA and the NSA tripled. Every keystroke we make on our computers and every phone call we make, are spied on by our own government. We live in a culture of manufactured fear of terrorism, even though more people (23) were killed by toddlers with pistols then terrorists.

Guest – Ray MacGovern, former senior CIA analyst, who was for 27 years an analyst with the CIA giving the first President George Bush his daily intelligence briefing. He is the cofounder of Veteran Intelligent Professionals for Sanity. Ray McGovern works for “tell the world”, the publishing an arm of the ecumenical church of the Savior in the inner city of Washington DC.
