Why Build the Green Party: The Real News Network Interviews 2012 GP Presidential Candidate Jill Stein

Jill Stein was the Green Party's 2012 candidate for President of the United States, and its current 2016 exploratory candidate.

Black Hole

In 2005, over 81,000 inmates were held in restricted housing. Solitary confinement is the practice of keeping prisoners in individual cells for most, if not all, hours of the day. Learn about the history of this practice, as well as its cost and the affect it has on the prisoners.

During the Zell Miller administration, the Governor sought and the Georgia Assembly appropriated funds to build three five-hundred cell facilities at existing prisons designed exclusively for solitary confinement. The Georgia-38 and many others are being held in solitary confinement by the Georgia Department of Corrections. Officers of the Georgia Green Party have received correspondence from inmates in solitary who report that some held there have been in solitary confinement for as long as nineteen years.

Multiple hunger strikes have recently been staged by inmates held in solitary across the country, including by inmates held under such conditions at the Georgia Diagnostic Center in Jackson Georgia, home to Georgia's Death Row.
