"Private Prisons: Commerce in Souls" Airs Next Week
Our good friends at Free Speech TV have put together a compelling episode of their newsweekly "Source Code" all about the tragedy of the prison industrial complex. Featuring legandary organizer Si Kahn, "Private Prisons: Commerce in Souls" is worth a look.
From Free Speech TV:
Corruption and collusion are nothing new for private prisons, but with back-room boosts from the Department of Homeland Security, the stakes are getting higher. SourceCode looks inside the private prison boom, and at the growing opposition to this state-administered slavery. In These Times reporter Silja Talvi talks with The Sentencing Project, and Grassroots Leadership shares their success story in Memphis. Plus, former inmates create moving images to tell their stories in a multi-media community arts project.
The show can be viewed online at sourcecode.freespeech.org starting February 28th, and on Free Speech TV, DISH Network Channel 9415. Working with activists and artists, FSTV uses television to cultivate an informed and active citizenry in order to advance progressive social change.
