In the Spirit of Incarceration,

Thanks to the good ole 13th amendment :facepalm:

13th amendment

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.



'This is slavery': U.S. inmates strike in what activists call one of the biggest prison protests in modern history

In his 29 years in prison, David Bonner has mopped floors, cooked hot dogs in the cafeteria and, most recently, cut sheets of aluminum into Alabama license plates.

The last job paid $2 a day — enough to buy a bar of soap at the commissary or make a short phone call ...



David Bonner, an inmate at Alabama's Holman prison, went on strike from his job last month at a factory on prison grounds where inmates manufacture state license plates. (Alabama Dept. of Corrections)

As long as Supermax prison populations are generally divided along racial & cultural lines there will never be a cohesive force to protest effectively without causing populationwide lockdown. As I said before economic sanctions are far more effective & damaging to the State Correctional system. Just stop reporting for what's considered physical & mental stimulation. Stop stamping out license plates, don't volunteer for road cleanup duty, refuse to load or unload supply vehicles, all trusties should disenroll from the facilities trustee programs, inmates scheduled to report for court appearances other then for early release should instead report to the medical units for treatment for any kind of medical complain they can think of. Whatever it takes to disrupt & eventually halt the day to day operation of the facility in a nonviolent manner. They'll get noticed then.

Exactly, we touch and agree, its called pulling out all stops and do not stop.
