Refuse to work, boycott canteen!

August 8, 2012

by Gustavo Chavez

In response to the article printed in the Bay View, I wish to express a few ideas of my own that will have a devastating impact on the prison economy. I confess I’m not for a peaceful solution being that we’re facing an enemy who will go to the fullest extreme to protect its interests.

If we’re going to continue with our struggle, everyone must participate, including the general population. Our first step should be refusing our medication; that will force their hand to take us to the outside hospital.

The general population statewide should refuse to work! Even boycotting canteen statewide will hurt the prison economy. Refusing TB testing is another great idea.

I recognize we must take action soon because I assure you the enemy is not taking a break on plotting against us. The COs (correctional officers) are hurting and not one day goes by without them harassing us. That alone speaks many volumes of what they’re trying to do to us.

Us convicts must always outsmart the system. With unity, we could accomplish anything, including shutting down the SHU!

In struggle.

    i have found it difficult to find a comprehensive list of consumer products either made in prisons or serviced by prisoners…even a list less than complete would be helpful in organizing a boycott of those products and services…i know it would be difficult given american's acceptance of products including coltan (indispensable in phones computers ipads etc) which are drenched in the blood of congolese people…we need to collectively punish the corporations who offer products and services from slave labor in prisons or blood drenched products from other countries….

    The bottom needs to be flat and steady so that the water passes easily pavers through the pavers into the base.
    They are great for both in side your home and outside your
    home. It is the first thing you see when you come in, and
