Radical unionism, local street movements, complaints about waged labour and strategies to slack off at work and still get paid.

Last week the Beyond the Bars program teams broadcast live from six Victorian prisons. We shared the mic with First Nations women and men across the state for NAIDOC Week 2023. You can now listen back to all the broadcasts and hear the insights direct from First Nations people in the system. We look forward to a day when we don't need to go into prisons to give First Nations people a voice.
