Rock College: An Unofficial History of Mount Eden Prison
2020 should not only be defined by the mass death and social devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. 2020 was also a year for a long-overdue global confrontation with the socially unjust consequences of justice systems around the world. Following the police killing of George Floyd, millions of people around the world took to the streets demanding ‘Black Lives Matter’, alongside calls to defund and disband the police. Tens of thousands took part in the successful ‘Arms Down’ campaign in Aotearoa to end a trial of Armed Response Teams. These movements put the question of racism and the future of the criminal justice system at the forefront of public debate.
