“The Attica Massacre 50 Years Later: America’s Human Rights Crisis Continues”
Attica has never been over. Slavery has never been over.
Is there anything more to learn about the Attica prison uprising? The truth is that it was a massacre of inmates protesting the lack of acknowledgment of their humanity. Demanding to be regarded as humans and the right to be treated as more than animals. Did we learn? We are just telling something of the truth about what happened there. Will that truth or a false pronouncement of being a global leader of human rights make the American prison system saner, and humane?
The prison system is one of the demonstrations that slavery bears harm in this nation. Let’s talk about abolition. Until the continuing existence of slavery in America is ended, the nation’s prison camps will be the largest plantations ever seen on the planet.
