Oakland Abolition and Solidarity on National ‘Shut’Em Down’ Demonstrations & Abolitionist Strategy

On today’s episode, we speak with two members of Oakland Abolition and Solidarity, an abolitionist organization based in the bay area of California that is involved in supporting prisoner led organizing in jails and prisons. We discuss the recent call from Jailhouse Lawyers Speak for national ‘Shut’Em Down’ demonstrations, the impact and role of the coronavirus in the recent wave of prisoner resistance, and abolitionist strategy in the current terrain.
