Did you know about the exception to the 13th amendment of the U.S. constitution? That would be the one that allows slavery "as a punishment for crime." Well, I didn't but it explains why prisons in the U.S. are a business. Prisons are given out like candy to provide employment for primarily white Americans in rural areas. Read this piece from the Guardian. It explains a lot.

Affaire du 8 décembre : Le chiffrement des communications assimilé à un comportement terroriste – La Quadrature du Net
Proposal for a new constitutional amendment: every human incarcerated in the U.S. must rehabilitated prior to release and during any probation period, including but not limited to altering behavioral patterns, economic deprivation, and mental illness support and counseling.
Yeah, I don’t think it would ever pass either.

A statutory appointment and profoundly important voluntary role undertaken by a people with a diverse range of backgrounds, ages, current careers, studying or retired. It is not for the faint-hearted because the stories and issues in our prisons are hard, but it is very interesting and important.
“The appetite for punishment, in a culture that is fueled by fear and anger, is infinite. We have 2.3 million people in our jails and prisons. A healthy society doesn’t take pride in the fact that it has the highest incarceration rate in the world. That’s a mark of failure. Unless you believe Americans are just less capable, less civilized, less decent, less human than every other country on the planet.” - #BryanStevenson

Forced Labor Continues in #Colorado, Years After Vote to End #Prison #Slavery
Coloradans voted in 2018 to amend their state constitution to ban forced labor in prison. Years later, incarcerated people are still being punished for refusing work assignments.
Even though the @TexasObserver has tracked this for a while, today is the first time I've really dug into the Clinton Young case, personally. https://www.texasobserver.org/clinton-young-death-row-lawsuit-midland/
What a fucking travesty:
"Ralph Petty played multiple, conflicting roles in Clinton Young’s case: He was part of the legal team that prosecuted him for murder, and also later argued against Young’s subsequent writs and appeals. At the same time, he was paid to advise and draft opinions for the district judge who ruled on those same appeals."
Alexa Gervasi, Young’s lawyer in the civil suit, has argued that was an impermissible and illegal abuse of power. “No one has more power than a prosecutor to take away a person’s liberty, and to allow what happened here to go without accountability, whatever that looks like, but without a court saying, ‘You violated Clint’s constitutional rights and that’s wrong,’ …. it’s self-perpetuating injustice,” Gervasi said. “The brazenness of all of Midland County—it’s an entire county of government officials signing off on this constitutional violation year after year after year for decades. It’s mind-boggling.”
Just in: "They stole 20 years of my life from me. I want them held accountable.”
Former death row inmate Clinton Young has filed a federal civil rights suit against two district attorneys who condoned the unethical behavior of the infamous 'moonlighting prosecutor': Ralph Petty sent Young to #prison while simultaneously working for #Midland county judges. https://www.texasobserver.org/clinton-young-death-row-lawsuit-midland/

Trump Does Not Rule Out Pardoning Himself
Former U.S. President Donald Trump says in a new interview that as he left office in 2021, he decided against preemptively pardoning himself against possible criminal charges. Trump, who is facing dozens of charges, however, refused to rule out doing so if he wins the 2024 election.

The United States’ extreme prison sentencing policies and practices, including life without parole, life with parole, “virtual life,” and other sentences that exceed life expectancy and thus effectively condemn individuals to death by incarceration, violate ...

Today in Labor History September 14, 1918: Labor leader and Socialist Eugene V. Debs was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for opposing World War I. During his sentencing he said “. . . while there is a lower-class I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free . . .” While in prison, Debs became the first person to run for U.S. president while behind bars, winning nearly 1 million votes.

Prison Labor Is Slave Labor and the Constitution Says That’s Fine
Incarcerated people work for cents on the dollar or for free to make goods you use.
The 13th Amendment, which ended slavery, left an important exception: it’s still legal to garnish wages, or more commonly, refuse to pay incarcerated people for forced labor. “As a result, incarcerated people live in slavery-like conditions,”

Wow... A German court refuses extradition to the UK, after asking about "chronic overcrowding, staff shortages, violence among inmates", only receiving a vague, last-minute email frok a police station in Manchester about "creating an extra 20,000 prison places", and then being ignored.
Prisons in the UK no longer meet EU standards, according to a judgment in a German court, and prisoners cannot be extradited according to EU law.
Whether other EU courts will agree with this remains to be seen.
Alabama Department of Corrections is on a statewide lockdown after a prisoner took a guard hostage last night, stealing his gun and vest. The situation is ongoing.
Shaw, who took the guard hostage has said on Facebook live “They like to use crime and punishment as the guise for keeping up white supremacy but that’s an old trick that’s been exposed..They profess to be about law and order but they don’t follow no kind of laws these people break the laws. Completely disregard the laws bend the laws and do all of that as they see it.”
A woman who has gone to the prison in support of Shaw said “This is the thing. They kill our loved ones, they kill our people on the inside on a regular basis. Nobody does anything they get away with it. But when they feel like something is going to happen to one of theirs, look how they respond. They don’t want to be peaceful.”
Approximately 110 people have already died is ADOC custody this year, and that is expected to be an undercount.
Ten Comrades Arrested in Police Operation Against Anarchist Newspaper in Italy
"On August 8, at dawn, the public prosecutor’s office of Genoa and the Digos (antiterrorist police) of La Spezia led yet another operation of repression against the anarchist movement. Ten anarchist comrades are accused in this investigation, including five comrades from Carrara, for whom the prosecutor initially asked for detention. In addition to searches in the homes, the Anarchist Cultural Circle “Gogliardo Fiaschi”, the historic center of anarchists in Carrara, has been the subject of a descent. Magazines, books, leaflets, posters and computer supplies have been seized. The preliminary investigation judge has decided on four residential assignments with all restrictions, five house arrests with return to prison at night. One comrade is not subject to any restriction. Luigi, one of the four residential comrades had no official residence: he was therefore transferred to the Spezia prison."

☝️ I'd suggest putting all the magas — the opportunists and sociopathic incurables alike — in a single *regular* general public style facility. Without the 'general public' (too harsh although not really), but with plentiful personal care supplies including safety razors. And life-sustaining orange dyes for the one stable idiot who needs them to shine.
Call for International Week of Solidarity with #AnarchistPrisoners
"Extreme right, conservative and authoritarian politics are increasing all around the world. Some use it to start Wars and kill thousands of people, some build fences and guard what they think is their property and others use it to arm up in the digital world. Surveillance is increased and the states are leaping more and more into our private spaces, analyzing our private conversations and collecting data about us with a depth of detail we could never have imagined. The tools of the states to crush resistance, crush even the idea of fighting the system, are sharpened with every minute. Many anarchists, anti-authoritarians, environmental activists, and antifascist around the world face repression because acting anonymous in a digitalized world is as difficult as never before.
With all the obstacles put into our way during the struggle for a better world, anarchist ideas and values remain important. In times of crisis methods of collective organizing, mutual aid and the principle of solidarity start to shine. The system will fall apart and we should get ready to take back a world that was stolen by companies, yacht owners and the war industry."
