Detroit Event in June: IWOC, Solidarity and Prisoner Resistance

IWOC hearts and handsPDF of flier, here.

The Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) is a campaign to defend our Sisters and Brothers locked up and on the inside. The campaign works to build solidarity and aid for those in prison. IWOC works with their families, communities and allies on the outside. From everyday needs to the direct support for prisoner resistance, IWOC works to build the movement against injustice!

 

Prisoners are on the front lines of the struggle against wage slavery and forced slave labor conditions, where refusal to work while in prison results in inhumane retaliation. The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) has created IWOC which functions as a liaison for prisoners to organize each other, unionize, and to build solid bridges between prisoners on the inside and fellow workers on the outside. IWOC understands the importance of organizing with prisoners so that prisoners can directly challenge prison slavery, work conditions, and the system itself.
