Bustin’ Out: From Solitary To Re-Entry by Janetta Johnson

This grassroots project was initiated by Marius Mason. He is an imprisoned transgender anarchist, serving 22 years for acts of eco-sabotage. Marius is incarcerated at Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas, a small, high–security facility; he receives few visits, his mail is monitored, and he is intensely socially isolated.
