Harvard Law students stand in solidarity with nationwide prison strike

Approximately thirty Harvard Law School students held a protest on Tuesday to voice their support for prison strikers across the country.

The so-called Nationwide Prison Strike has been in effect since August 21 and is due to end September 9.

The event was organized by the Powerfully Utilizing Law School Educations for Political (PULSE) and Social Justice Committee, a subcommittee of the Harvard Black Law Students Association.

The Harvard Crimson reports attendees demanded reforms at federal and state prisons including prisoners getting paid for their labor, the possibility of parole for all prisoners, and “an immediate end to the racial overcharging, over-sentencing, and parole denials of Black and brown humans.”

The activists gathered by “form[ing] a semicircle” around a memorial dedicated to the slaves owned by Isaac Royall Jr., Harvard Law’s “original benefactor.”
