#Occupy Private Prison: Shut Down Stewart Detention Center

Correction Corporation of America’s Stewart facility in Lumpkin, Georgia is the largest private detention center in the nation. Stewart currently profits close to $50 million a year.

CCA charges inmates close to $5 a minute to make a phone call. To pay for this inmates work in the facility and earn a whopping $1 a day. 5 days of work gives them enough for a one minute phone call.

CCA’s greed knows no boundaries. In the past few years they have spent $14.8 million lobbying for more anti-immigration laws, like HB87 in Georgia, to ensure they have continuous access to fresh inmates and keep this money racket going. It’s time to put an end to it.

Join the protest on November 18th!
