Title Demonstrations Against "Workhouse" Jail Rock St. Louis
 
Subtitle
 
Description The Workhouse medium security prison in north St Louis City is notorious for it's filth, cockroach and rodent infestations, black mold, antagonism by the guards, and deep ineptitude of those who operate it. To highlight the inexcusable conditions, a noise demo was called for the evening of July 21. Around 300 people gathered outside the Workhouse to demand immediate relief of those suffering inside. The front line of the demo turned it's energy on the fence itself, shaking the outer fence and eventually removing some of the clasps that adhere the fence to the fence poles. Protests continued through the following day. Numerous people were pepper sprayed by police and arrested.
