Prison Radio has been on the air in Montreal for more than nine years. Prison Radio seeks to confront the invisibility of prisons and prisoner struggle, by focusing on the roots of incarceration, policing, and criminalization, and by challenging our ideas about what prisons are and the people inside our jails.
Prison Radio is dedicated to programming that is directly collaborative with people who are currently incarcerated. This is in the interest of forging stronger ties between incarcerated and non-incarcerated people, ensuring that prisoners have direct control over their representation, and that our understandings of prisons be informed by those who live inside their walls.
Prison Radio is on air the second Thurday of every month from 5-6pm and the third Friday of every month from 11am-12pm.
Alternates with No One Is Illegal and Labour Radio on Thursdays.
