Private Prisons in a Wider Context: Video

Recent momentum has been building against the private prison industry, including here in Denver, and is exciting and is already making progress. Over at the blog Chaparral Respects No Borders (CRNB), an excellent two part video series has been put together on the ways in which the criminal justice system intersects with capitalism, white supremacy, colonialism, and other forms of oppression to maintain themselves.

These are great videos to watch to remember the bigger picture of imprisonment and criminalization in this country so as we put the heat on corporations such as Wells Fargo, GEO, and CCA that we avoid what CRNB warns of

“An anti-private prison campaign can easily fall into the same traps as the “go after the real criminals” message, as though there’s nothing wrong with the “criminal” “justice” system.”
