Prisons - Nowra, Grafton and Pelican Bay

This week we’re talking incarceration in our criminal justice system. We look at the living and working conditions for inmates, why it's so extraordinary that the community in Grafton blockaded the gaol to keep the prisoners in and the gaol open, and it’s a year on from the mass hunger strikes at Pelican Bay prison in California. Jessica Minshall speaks with Brett Collins, co-ordinator of Justice Action.

Inside Time is a free national newspaper in the UK, which gets circulated to over 80 000 prison inmates and dates back to the 1990 Strangeways riot in Manchester. The magazine's Managing Director Eric McGraw spoke with Annamarie Reyes.
