I have information that the guards at Bibb County Correctional Facility are intimidating and threatening the inmates in order to keep them from also protesting. Who can I contact about this?

I clicked on the link you provided but it takes me to a mortgage company site. Thanks for your comment. I will tell them. The workers are being rounded up and separated as well as threatened with being thrown in lock up if they do strike. I will do what I can. Thank you for your response. Is there a facebook page for this movement?
