Emergency Support for the Alabama Prison Boycott!
Alabama Resistance Movement Support (ARMS), along with several allied groups, have called for an economic boycott of the Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC) for the month of January 2021, in response to the carelessness and neglect that ADOC has demonstrated towards the prisoners in their custody. Participants are already facing brutal retaliation and beatings for their bravery. Funds can be sent directly to ARMS via Cashapp at $FAMARMS and Venmo via @Justice-Amun.
ARMS asked Fight Toxic Prisons to raise emergency funds to directly support these prisoners as they face further retaliation. All money raised will be used for commissary, material support, and legal support for hunger strikers and other participants in the economic boycott.
Donations will be a huge help for our comrades behind bars, but you can also support in other ways! Check out this toolkit to see how! And share the link:
Not even five days into the boycott, we have heard from comrades inside Kilby Correctional Facility that they are ALREADY facing brutal retaliation! On December 31st, 2020, corrections officers aggressively attacked several prisoners who were allegedly involved with planning the boycott. Shift lieutenants and captains were on hand and did nothing to intervene or stop the assaults from happening, and prisoners were denied medical attention afterwards.
The following individuals are currently housed at Kilby Correctional Facility and are being held in segregation. They have committed to joining the cause in the only way that they can, by going on a hunger strike; along with hundreds of unnamed prisoners across the state engaging in the broad-based economic boycott.
Salute to the Freedom Fighters on the frontlines!
