Las prisiones se han convertido en metáfora; las prisiones muestran lo que podemos llamar, el lado oscuro de los Estados Unidos.

From Between The Lines: Interview with Bruce Hamilton, deputy executive director of the Sierra Club, conducted by Melinda Tuhus (Editor's note: At the interviewee's request, a clarification was added to the comparison of natural gas versus coal.)
A blogger for Time magazine revealed on Feb. 2 that from 2007 to 2010, the Sierra Club, under former Executive Director Carl Pope, had accepted $26 million in donations from individuals and subsidiaries linked with Chesapeake Energy, one of the largest gas drilling companies in the U.S. heavily involved in the controversial drilling method known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.” The funds were donated for the express purpose of funding the environmental group’s Beyond Coal campaign.

Credit ‘people power’ for getting internationally known inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal sprung from his apparently punitive, seven-week placement in ‘The Hole.’
For the first time since receiving a controversial death sentence in 1982 for killing a Philadelphia policeman, the widely acclaimed author-activist finds himself in general population, a prison housing status far less restrictive than the solitary confinement of death row.
