There are currently 85,690 people held in prison, not including people
detained under the Mental Health Act, in Secure Children’s homes or in
Immigration detention. The prison population of Britain has doubled over the last twenty years.
“Tear Down The Walls” is the rallying cry of prison abolitionists
around the world. When we begin to understand the harm caused by
prisons, the concept of dismantling the prison-industrial-complex seems like the most logical conclusion.
But the common narrative surrounding prisons is that they are a
necessary part of justice. As prison abolitionists we refute this and
claim that prisons are the symptom of a broken system.
This March after the debut at Kebele, members of the Empty Cages Collective will be touring the north of the UK to discuss the ideas of prison abolition and alternatives to incarceration.
*Saturday 15th March | 11am-3pm | Kebele (incl. breakfast!)*
