Supporters say Alabama inmate protest is growing

A Dothan minister, who works with Alabama inmates, says nonviolent protests have spread to other prisons.{} The Reverend Kenneth Glasgow, executive director of The Ordinary People Society, said the protests began January 1 at St. Clair and Holman correctional facilities and now include Elmore and Donaldson prisons.{} He says some prisoners in the institutions are refusing to do their assigned jobs because of concerns about unsanitary conditions, overcrowding and small pay.

Holman had fewer protesters Monday, with eight refusing to work in the tag plant.{} Four inmates refused to work in the laundry at Elmore.{} No inmates were working at St. Clair but that was because of an inmate stabbing rather than a protest.{} There was no report of protests at Donaldson.
