CR New York City Releases Zine: Attica Interview Project

In September 2016, on the 45th anniversary of the 1971 Attica Uprising, CR New York City released a new zine with artwork by Anu Biswas. The zine powerfully outlines some of the history of Attica prison and the legacy of resistance. Between 2013-2014, the Attica Interview Project interviewed several people formerly imprisoned at Attica. The zine includes accounts of their lives in prison, and their experiences of repression, resistance and social transformation. The New York City chapter continues its work to close Attica prison alongside the Beyond Attica coalition and later this year will be launching a website to more fully profile these interviews and provide a platform for ongoing education about Attica prison.
