Occupy a Private Prison!

Fantastic new video from the Immigrants for Sale Campaign called "Occupy a Private Prison."  It's an advocacy piece to call for the shutting down of the Stewart Immigration Detention Facility in Lumpkin, GA.  The video discusses how the private prison industry exploits immigration detainees to enhance its bottom line; for example, prisoners lucky enough to have jobs earn about $1 per day, but CCA charges up to $5 per minute for a phone call.

Update (11-22-11): a crowd of 270 turned out to voice their opposition to the detention center, and two people were arrested.
