Show Notes:

This interview with imprisoned anti-capitalist and solidarity activist Alex Hundert looks into his article "Getting out of jail in the age of austerity" which, among other things gets into discussion about the McGuinty attacks on social services and the plan to cut funding to the community start up and maintenance benefit (CSUMB).  These cuts will have enormous impacts on prisoners who will be unable to pay first and last months rent on getting out of prison, and are more likely to end up on the streets and back in jail.
