On the theme of “Decolonization and Abolition,” this powerful issue pulls back the curtain on the essential relationship between global, intersecting decolonial struggles, and the work to resist the insidious violence of the prison industrial complex. As stated in the “Letter from the Editors,” from Palestine to Puerto Rico to First Nations resistance:
…abolition and decolonization are a necessary ongoing kinship to uplift all bodies harmed by colonialism, as mechanisms of erasure, disappearance, and confinement work to uphold the prison industrial complex and uphold the same actors that benefit from the first colonial settlements centuries ago.
