June 2017: Critical Resistance is taking up some work this year to highlight the use of state repression as related to the prison industrial complex. In so doing, it is important to hear from political prisoners as to how they understand political imprisonment being used to repress social movements for liberation. As
we carry our work forward, political prisoners’ ongoing work and struggle for national liberation, against imperialism, and to organize your community is an inspiration to so many in our organization and movement.

We are still receiving responses. Here are some of the initial replies to our June 2017 letter to political prisoners. We will update this page with the final collection of responses.
