Welcome Visitor:

What is the Prison Industrial Complex?

Date and Time: 
Friday, March 25, 2011 -
6:00am to 8:00am

Join us for an evening of learning about the Prison Industrial Complex, through a bunch of short films and clips we've collected.

Films will include:

** Short video lecture about the Prison Industrial Complex by prison abolitionist activist Angela Davis

** Short film/clips about Aboriginal incarceration and deaths in custody

** News clips from the recent Georgia Prisoners' Strike (the largest in U.S. history)

** 'I won't drown on that levee and you ain't gonna break my back' - a 30 minute film exploring the 'botched and deadly evacuation' of the New Orleans Parish Prison during Hurricane Katrina, and the 'broader climate of racial tension and brutality throughout the local and Federal response to the disaster'.

++ opportunity for discussion ++

We are a recently formed collective based in Sydney with a vision for a world without prisons.

Hope to see you there!!

There will be some snacks available, please feel free to bring some too.
