Ending The Prison Crisis in Hull in Hull on 23/08/17

Truth Juice Hull Presents: Ending The Prison Crisis

In March this year the government announced the expansion of HMP Full Sutton, a high security adult prison near York. The expansion is intended to increase the site’s overall capacity by over 1000 with a new “mega-prison” facility. This is part of a much broader national prison expansion campaign, with five other prisons billed for construction by 2020.

While it’s claimed these new builds are a necessary measure to address the unprecedented levels of overcrowding and the deterioration of prison conditions in the last decades, the longer term drivers of the prison crisis continue to go unaddressed.

A presentation on the British prison system and the pathways out of the crisis.

“Prisons do not disappear social problems, they disappear human beings. Homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, mental illness, and illiteracy are only a few of the problems that disappear from public view when the human beings contending with them are relegated to cages.”

― Angela Davis
