The Expanding AmeriKKKan Gulag

The Expanding AmeriKKKan Gulag

“Establishing Installation Civilian Inmate Labor Programs
2–1. Policy statement
a. With a few exceptions, the Army’s Civilian Inmate Labor Program is currently limited to using inmates from facilities under the control of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP). Section 4125(a), Title 18, United States Code allows the Attorney General to make available to other Federal agencies the services of Federal inmates and defines the types of services inmates can perform. The FBOP provides civilian inmate labor free of charge to the Army.
b. The Army is not interested in, nor can afford, any relationship with a corrections facility if that relationship stipulates payment for civilian inmate labor. Installation civilian inmate labor program operating costs must not exceed the cost avoidance generated from using inmate labor (see para 4–3 for a discussion of cost avoidance).
c. Guidelines in this regulation for establishing installation civilian inmate labor programs pertain to negotiating with Federal corrections facilities only. Currently, there is no overarching law that addresses establishing State and/or local civilian inmate labor programs on Department of Defense (DOD) military facilities when these programs use inmates from off–post corrections facilities.
d. However, there are 3 exceptions to using State or local civilian inmate labor from off–post corrections facilities.
(1) Section 1065, PL 103–337, allows the Army to conduct a demonstration project. This demonstration project tests the feasibility of providing prerelease employment training to nonviolent offenders in a State corrections facility. The demonstration project is limited to 3 Army installations. The 3 Army installations participating in the demonstration
project may use inmates from an off–post State corrections facility.”- Army Regulation 210-35 Installations Civilian Inmate Labor Program Headquarters Department of the Army Washington, DC 14 January 2005 UNCLASSIFIED

The United States Army actually has a regulation calling for the establishment of a civilian inmate labor program and civilian prison camps on US Army bases. That’s right, slave labor done by US prisoners This program harkens back to the old convict leasing, chain gang, free labor model employed in the US extensively immediately following the US Civil War. Following Reconstruction, the re-established ruling elites of the Southern states created laws that in effect restored slavery in the US. These laws coupled with the virulent racism that pervaded the nation set the stage for the courts to lock up and lease out countless Africans to plantations and corporations for free or in some cases for a monetary kickback to the Sheriff or Judge. Business as usual in AmeriKKKa, justice compromised for sale to the highest bidder.
Most folks don’t know that the US Constitution actually still permits slavery. The Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution says, “Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” This is real, double check it yourself In this missive I will share with you dear reader portions of the US Army’s regulations specifically US Army Regulation 210-35. The Army will allow “non-violent” prisoners from federal prisons to work for the US Army free of charge. US Army regulation 210-35 is available on the Internet write it in on your browser download it and read it for yourself. In the meantime US Army Regulation also calls for “pilot programs” that will allow civilian prisoners from state and local prisons to be used for free labor. For example US Army Regulation 210-35 actually contains this wording: Chapter 1
1–1. Purpose
This regulation provides Army policy and guidance for establishing civilian inmate labor programs and civilian prison
camps on Army installations. Sources of civilian inmate labor are limited to on– and off–post Federal corrections
facilities, State and/or local corrections facilities operating from on–post prison camps pursuant to leases under Section
2667, Title 10, United States Code (10 USC 2667), and off–post State corrections facilities participating in the
demonstration project authorized under Section 1065, Public Law (PL) 103–337. Otherwise, State and/or local inmate
labor from off–post corrections facilities is currently excluded from this program.
Of course after this program is up and running, you can bet your bottom dollar the “pilot programs” that include state and local prisoners will be expanded to include any and all state and local prisoners. Couple this with the fact Haliburton’s subsidiary Kellogg Brown and Root was recently awarded a $385 million dollar contract to construct “emergency immigration detention centers”. Shades of Rex 84 or the old King Alfred Plan whereby the US government actually planned to man and operate numerous detention centers probably on the order of the internment camps that housed Japanese-Americans during WWII. Any questions about who will be housed in these new “emergency detention centers”? With Arab and Muslim xenophobia on the rise and Bu$h and Co. worrying about their crashing opinion poll ratings, dissent and opposition to their imperialist war agenda, is it too far fetched to conclude these detention centers are being built to house AmeriKKKans? Remember COINTELPRO and Operation Chaos during the 1970's and the US government’s police state campaign to squash the anti-war, Black Power, organized labor, Indian and Chicano rights movements? Bu$h and Co are far more fascist, psychopathic and imperialist than Nixon ever was; so what do you think they plan to do with these interment camps? Not only do they plan to lock up more people and classify them as Federal prisoners, they plan obviously to exploit the free labor of these new prisoners Keep an eye on this because given present incarceration rates and policies black people will be swept up, stuffed into these new centers and mandated to work for free. They did it from the 1800's up until the mid twentieth century. Africans in AmeriKKKa experienced and suffered the bulk of this prison slavery. Is there any doubt this scenario will replicate itself in the not too distant future?
