US inmates launch nationwide strike

US inmates launch nationwide strikeUS prisoners on Tuesday declared a nationwide strike demanding changes to correctional institutions including living conditions, pathways to parole and voting rights restoration. The US incarceration rate is the world’s highest: about 2.2 million people were behind bars at the end of 2016, a figure the American Civil Liberties Union says represents approximately one-fifth of the global population of prisoners. The strike — set to continue through September 9, according to organizers — was called in response to a deadly riot in April at a maximum security prison in South Carolina, Lee Correctional Institution.
