prison expansion

End the Prison Industrial Complex (EPIC)

EPIC is an abolitionist organization based in Kingston, ON.

This post from EPIC’s blog talks about the companies that will be profiting from new prison construction (and additions to existing prisons) in Canada.

It’s important to know which corporations are profiting from building new prisons, because they are making their living from the misery of others.  I know it’s complicated, because the people who provide labour for the companies need jobs and incomes, but corporations can also choose to make ethical decisions about the kind of work they do.  Applying pressure to companies to stop taking contracts with CSC is important, in the same way people boycott companies that harm the environment or exploit their workers.
