At 7pm Tuesday June 2 we’ll be hosting a discussion on organising in Australian Prisons, presented by Brett Collins, a coordinator at Justice Action.
Brett has been active in campaigning for prisoners’ rights for 30 years. He is an ex-prisoner, and has in the past been involved in establishing halfway houses and a prisoners union. Justice Action currently lobbies for the rights of prisoners, across issues such as forced medication, the upcoming smoking ban in prisons and access to education.
Come hear a talk from Brett introducing us to the history and current state of prison activism in Australia, followed by a discussion about alternatives to incarceration and how radical folks can support inmates and fight for a world without prisons.
