Fuck Yeah Anarchist Banners
from anarchistnews.org:




Tomorrow morning in Pelican Bay State Prison in California, prisoners in the security housing unit will begin a hunger strike to protest their conditions, which include 22+ hour/day lockdown. In 2011, there was a call for prisoners in lockdown to go on hunger strike, and prisoners in genpop to go on a work strike. The 2011 strike peaked at 12,000 prisoners in 13 prisons, and lasted 3 weeks.
This year, strikes have been organized in San Diego, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Sacramento, Portland and Seattle. This is to call attention to the inhumane and torturous conditions of prisons all across North America. In Pelican Bay, prisoners are only allowed the chance leave lockdown if they inform on fellow inmates and folks on the outside. This is to create suspicion and division, and to reinforce the power of the state. Hunger strikes are an act of solidarity among prisoners, and an act of revolt against the prison industrial complex that fucks with them all.
Kingston anarchists dropped a banner over the highway in solidarity with hunger strikers and prisoners everywhere. There are 8 PIC institutions in our town and one fucking huge military base. Fuck prisons, fuck the state, fuck oppression in all its forms. We will never stop fighting.
