Listen to the New Rustbelt Abolition Radio

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, listen to the first episode of Rustbelt Abolition Radio! This is an excellent answer to anyone who says abolition is “not realistic” or that “it is not time.” Abolish prisons and police now! Thank you to the folks at Rustbelt Abolition Radio.

In this episode we turn to recent news of the deepening impacts of the biggest prison strike in U.S. History, as we look at Kinross Correctional Facility in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We also speak with Professor Liat Ben-Moshé on our carceral society and the political imaginary of abolition. We wrap with a phone interview with Chaz, an imprisoned trans woman in Michigan who is fighting for queer and trans prisoners’ liberation.
