As well, the National Boricua Human Rights Network is happy to announce the arrival of Out of Control: A Fifteen Year Battle Against Control Unit Prisons. This important book documents the decade and a half struggle of the Committee to End the Marion Lockdown in challenging the barbaric practices at Marion Federal Prison in Illinois, opposing the proliferation of control unit prisons across U.S. and illuminating the racist and inhumane nature of U.S. incarceration. Additionally, a special version of this book can also be found on the internet. While theinternet version is shorter and more concise, it provides direct links to documents, pamphlets, audio and video segments as well as other materials created by and related to the Committee to End the Marion Lockdown. We are really excited about this book, the historical context it provides and the interactivity of the online version.
