New Action: Stop Sheriff Earnell Lucas and DA Ted Chisholm taking $300,000 from mental health!

“On Thursday, June 24, the Milwaukee County Board will vote on creating 3 new deputy sheriff positions using $300,000 from the county mental health budget. These funds are coming in connection with the Crisis Assessment Response Team (CART) program, which replaces a deputy sheriff with a mental health professional on calls relating to mental health crises.”

Tabling outside the post office—it’s getting pricey, but we don’t quit. Random folks going in to mail packages are mostly more than willing to send off some literature to prisoners!

They tried to tell us we’re not allowed to table out here, but fuck them, we don’t listen to the man!

(also, city ordinance is on our side 🤪)

Lots happened on both the state and local level in the last few weeks. Too much for us to really keep up with.

-joint finance shot down prison reform, but also expanded the DOC budget and buildings less than Evers had proposed.
-the snitch house bill and other fake police reforms went to gov Evers desk and he said he would sign them.
-the county board’s finance committee agreed with sending $300,000 of mental health money to the sheriff’s office, but rejected their overspending report.

What is the State, why do anarchists hate it so, can it not be a tool of liberation & are you still pissed about the 1st Intl? Scott talks to Eric Laursen about his new book, "The Operating System: An Anarchist Theory of the Modern State" (AK Press, 2021)

Need to boost this one again, anyone in Wisconsin, please make sure you’re challenging these fuckers on their Snitch House Bill.

“Working together, we took a bill that had unanimous support in the senate and turned all the democrats on the committee on local government against it. We can do it again. If we sow dissent in the assembly, and convince senators to recant their votes, we will see this harmful, police-expansionist bill vetoed!”

“Find it on Facebook. Share it. Sign the connected petition. Attend. If you can’t attend, follow and signal-boost our coverage.

We won’t win the budget, but we will lose in a way that stops our racist Governor from passing the buck and washing his hands of responsibility for Wisconsin’s ongoing, daily pursuit of Black suffering and death.”

head up to madison to tell this gerrymandered bullshit committee: No New Prisons!

New Post: Snitch House Democrats

“Other measures to expand police funding have met strong local opposition in Milwaukee...We don’t want cops using wraparound services to recruit snitches to do their neighbors dirty, either. Nevertheless, every single senator, including those representing Milwaukee, voted for the bill.”

New Post!

A refutation of the testimony by guards and "workers" at Lincoln Hills & Copper Lake.

These people are claiming that these facilities are unsafe for workers. All of them worked there since prior to 2016 when the treatment of children at these facilities was so bad even the Walker Administration and the Feds got involved with addressing it.

Here's our video response, point by point of what, they say at these hearings in Rhinelander Wi:

New Post! Prison Hurts All of Wisconsin

“Despite many cultural differences, Wisconsin’s prison system has a similar negative impact on people in both under-resourced rural communities and Milwaukee’s northside. Those who have been cut out of the jobs economy, who’ve been marginalized and neglected by political elites, business owners, and corporations, are more likely to struggle with addiction, despair, and violence. We know what comes next...”
