We’ve created a new poster calling for the destruction of prison society. It’s designed to provide a basic introduction to the concept of “prison society.”
The image is below and it is also available as a PDF:
The full text of the poster:
DESTROY PRISON SOCIETY
Prison is much more than four walls of a vile institution; prison as a condition is reflected and reproduced in the world that surrounds us.
It is the cameras on every street corner surveilling our comings and goings; it is the DNA and fingerprint databanks that record our most personal details; it is the borders and constant threat of detention and deportation that would keep us from freely choosing where we want to live. It is the threat of work or imprisonment; the routine of work and school; the domestication of life.
