U.P. Michigan:
A Second Prison Protest

Apr 11, 2016

At a second state prison in the Upper Peninsula, another protest erupted. It also targeted the for-profit prison food contractor, Trinity. At the Chippewa Prison, in the west wing, only inmates who had to eat for medical reasons showed up. Everyone else stayed in their cells in a peaceful protest. The warden may have met the food company. But if the prisoners got a few decent meals, it was their own unity that got it for them.
