About the Prison Watch Network:
Prison Watch Network is a group of blogs with focus mainly on the human righs abuses inside prisons, documenting and publishing about these, and spreading information to the public aiming to create more awareness about human rights and the lack of rehabilitation inside.
If prisons are necessary, they should be places of restoring, healing the persons involved in crimes (victims and perpetrators). We oppose any prisons for profit, or any earning off crime.
We are not a legal organization. We are with a few dedicated volunteers.
Our larger goal is to reduce the amount of prisoners and prisons; we endorse Resorative Justice and prevention from crimes in the first place by concentrating on better education, more personal mentoring, social justice, better care for the mentally ill, more community-building, to create a world where everyone is welcome and where everyone can grow. Everyone can participate in changing our own and the world community for the better.
We are with only a few dedicated volunteers. If you want to participate in one of our State- or topical blogs too, contact us and we will help establish for a blossoming Human Rights activity. We have a PrisonWatch weblog for each US State.
We are not dependent on government or corporate media to wait for changes to happen. We can act now, by doing things we believe in. Solidarity and Compassion, Co-operating with each other should be our focus.
