Inmates at Holman in Alabama took over their dorm yesterday, August 1st, and prison authorities have yet to regain control. Inmates set fires and resisted the CERT team which is currently trying to suppress the uprising. Power and water have been shut off, and the entire prison is on lockdown.
Prisoners are calling for news of this resistance to be spread. This is only the most recent in a series of rebellions at Holman, and it will not be the last! Those outside the prison walls are encouraged to get in touch with prisoners and get organized to support them.
