Lompoc Prison Strike

Immediately following the Los Angeles uprising, prisoners at FCI (Federal Correctional Institution) Lompoc, North of LA, joined in a prison wide general strike for 3 days. Prison officials were greatly threatened by the unity of the prisoners: hundreds of men were put in the hole and teargassed, five hundred men were immediately transferred out.

New Afrikan political prisoner Dr. Mutulu Shakur, convicted of conspiracy in the liberation of imprisoned New Afrikan freedom fighter Assata Shakur, faces transfer to the US Penitentiary at Marion, IL. He is charged with "encouraging a disturbance". We will keep readers posted of new developments in this story.
