Class War Prisoners

A CLASS WAR PRISONER IS A working person held behind bars because of their role in organizing or leading a battle in the class struggle. Class war prisoners are often union organizers, strike picket leaders and labor solidarity activists. Generally, they are charged with breaking one of the numerous anti-labor laws meant to keep working people from asserting their rights and defending their livelihoods.
