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.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
