Protest at young offenders institute

Issue No. 2234

Prisoners rioted at Littlehey young offenders’ unit in Cambridgeshire this week. It comes after a riot at Ford open prison two weeks ago.

The media is making a fuss about a few prison officers being injured in the “disturbance”.

But the real issue is the brutality of prisons that drives the young people in them to fight back in whatever way they can.
