SummaryOrganizers from the African People's Solidarity Committee (APSC) in Philadelphia will discuss Pennsylvania's Oppressive 'Economic Stimulus Package' (Prison Economy) and African Resistance. With judges taking millions of dollars in payoffs to lock up children, a 567% rise in prison population since 1980, and brutally enforced public policy of police containment, it's clear that Pennsylvania's economy rests on the oppression and incarceration of African people. This week's show will expose the economic boom of prisons and police in the city with the largest rate of imprisonment in the U.S., and will present clips from the February 26th People's Townhall Meeting, a public forum for solutions to the conditions faced by the African community, led by the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement.
