Episode 3 – One Funky Onion

Update 3-13-2020
Both Jeremy and Chelsea have been released from Contempt of the grand jury! Now Jeremy will be transferred back to the FBOP for the duration of his sentence, but is stuck in Alexandria still while the 30 day suspension of BOP movement is lifted…..

Thanks to those who have supported Jeremy during this latest fiasco and everyone who assisted with the Grumbles motion and letters!

-Update 3-12-2020
We are shocked and disheartened with news of Chelsea’s health, and we’re sending love and solidarity and all the strength in the world to this brave woman. We are all just reflecting on the situation and are doing our best to look out for each other while her legal team can hopefully get her out on Friday.

This episode is a stinky one. We record this episode as Jeremy is in solitary confinement for stealing an onion from the kitchen, so for that one, we’re starting off by blowing the whistle on the roaches and crap food that Aramark has been slinging to inmates. On The Noise! this week we talk about the recent police shooting on an unarmed man on the subway in Chicago, continuing our conversation about the movement against the criminalization of poverty and the dangers of police on public transportation. We also raise the question of what the state plans to do for prisoners in the case that Coronavirus becomes pandemic, as it has in Italy, where inmates have been rising up, starting fires, escaping their captors in protest of their particularly vulnerabilities due to the decrepit situation of overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, and low access to medical care. Lastly of course we will be talking about the upcoming Grumbles hearing for both Jeremy and Chelsea. Can you believe they went through all the effort of reassembling the whole damn Grand Jury again, only to bring Jeremy to court and give ‘em the Bartleby?

We’re featuring music by Tzar Bomba, punx from chicago that get the masses moving!

Episode 2 – Grand Jury Exposed

2.22.2020
This episode is our biggest one yet! And there is no one better to be our first guest than Grace from the Support Committee! In this podcast Jeremy spills the tea on what went down at the grand jury, including the questions themselves, and what they reveal about their investigation into Wikileaks and Julian Assange. Also mentioned are the arguments Jeremy and his legal team pursued to demand his constitutional right to remain silent, and some updates on Assange’s upcoming extradition hearing and a discussion of how his politics has turned to the right over the years.

This weeks On The Noise! segment discusses the investigations into the GEO and G4S Private Prison groups, including mentions of the large number of inmate hunger strikes that went down in 2019 at a number of immigrant detention centers in protest of the disgusting and dehumanizing conditions. We also talk about the alarming number of inmate deaths in the Mississippi Department of Corrections, about how they are blamed on prisoners or gang violence, even though they are the result of poor conditions of the prisons themselves. We continue on with a bit about the Fare Evasion Movement, mentioning a recent FTP3 action on Jan. 31st in NYC, talking about the demands for universal free transit and how the increase in transit cops and fare hikes are bogus austerity measures imposed by the state to criminalize and tax poor people, especially POC. Lastly, we revisit the recent legalization of cannabis in Illinois, and elaborate on barriers that the federal prohibition maintains for people, especially for undocumented folk and people seeking food stamps, EBT, SNAP or housing assistance.

This episode introduces a new segment, Raggedy Ass Jails, where Jeremy talks about the destitute conditions at Alexandria Detention Center, problems ubiquitous throughout jails and prisons everywhere.

Lastly, there is a new letter section, where we respond to questions or suggestions of things to discuss on the podcast.

This episode features music by Chicago rapper Novatore. Check this shit out!

Updates – In addition to the exemption of FOIA requests for GEO, the National Archives begins removing records related to ICE, including complaints filed for misconduct, including those filed under the Trump regime, showing how they are covering up their heinous conditions and practice of family separating from the public eye.
