New Piece in The Brooklyn Rail: Solidarity Behind Bars

Dissident COBA caucus editorial cartoon from 1976
I have a piece in the September Brooklyn Rail detailing the political history of the Correction Officers' Benevolent Association (COBA), NYC's jail guard union, and its relationship to the plan to close down Rikers Island. Read it here, or get off your stroke carpet and pick up a print copy in real life.
