    Le père Magnin est le Recteur de l'Université Catholique de Lyon (UCLY). Il explique la volonté de l'Université de s'installer dans les anciennes prisons en cours de réhabilitation. Saint-Paul et Saint-Joseph de Lyon ont accueilli des détenus jusqu’en mai 2009. Après leur désaffectation, l’État a lancé un appel à idées, puis un appel d’offres, pour leur reconversion. Le projet de réhabilitation retenu "la VIE grande ouverte" conçu par les architectes Thierry Roche, Garbit & Blondeau (St-Paul), Jean-Jacques Ory (St-Joseph) joue sur l’ouverture, le lien et la conservation de ce patrimoine. En 2014, Saint-Paul hébergera l’université catholique de Lyon, Saint-Joseph sera reconverti en bureaux et logements. Interview réalisée par Madeleine Caillard en 2012.

      Johanna Fernandez, a Baruch College Professor of History, explains how a recent ruling throwing out Mumia Abu-Jamal's death sentence, has galvanized further efforts to "Occupy the Justice System." Police corruption is rampant throughout urban areas in the United States, and only serves to exacerbate the effect policing practices like racial profiling and stop and frisk, and mass incarceration have on communities of color and working-class people.

        Valentine Kovtun - The books of Ephesians and Colossians are two of four prison epistles (along with Philippians and Philemon) that the Apostle Paul penned while on house arrest in Rome. These two books are very similar in their presentation of a holistic, panoramic view of the Christian life, demonstrating who we are in light of the person and work of Jesus Christ. In each book, Paul shows us that an exalted view of the supremacy and sufficiency of Christ in salvation helps us understand how to live out a heartfelt obedience to Christ in both the church and the world.

          from Confrontational Media / Added

          On September 19th, the Joint Budget Committee held a public hearing to discuss the Prison Utilization Study. In response, a coalition of organizations, faith leaders, and community members rallied outside the Legislative Services Building to let the legislators and media know that we are opposed to for-profit prisons operating in Colorado. For-profit prisons not only sucks money out of our state budget to fund prison contracts instead of education or job programs. But they also rob our communities of talented individuals who are seen only as dollar signs to for-profit prison CEOs.

                    DESCRIPTION TE2/1976/11 Seminar. Begins as a continuation of TE2/1976/10. A black screen and quick tracking wave cuts to a seated woman in a pointed-collar blouse and wavy dark hair leading a discussion. The camera pans to reveal 2 women seated beside her, then an audience in a large, rectangular white-washed brick room with paintings hung along its perimeter. The handheld camera seems to be shooting this opening sequence of events from a low angle directly in the middle of the seminar circle. Whether this technique and location is kept consistent throughout the film is unclear, as the camera technique relies heavily on close ups of the faces of the people speaking. Cuts, pans and zooms follow a gradual discussion of social issues as its jumps back and forth across the circle and the room. Light tracking begins about one minute before the end of the film. Ends mid-sentence on a man speaking off camera, the shot of an dark-haired English woman who has also just finished speaking moments before. McGrath also gave a quick overview of Jones’ career and mentions the publication of a new book which may have sparked the seminar at time when Third Eye was already interested in the special unit at Barlinnie and working regularly with the art therapist Joyce Laing: ‘Maxwell Jones, who is now resident in Arizona, was instrumental in setting up the Henderson Hospital unit for character disorders and Dingleton Hospital, Melrose. During his 30 years work in developing social organisations he has issued a number of publications including ‘Social Psychiatry in Action’, and his most recent book – ‘Maturation of the Therapeutic Community’ – has just been published.’

                      DESCRIPTION TE2/1976/12 Seminar. Begins mid-sentence of a dark-haired English woman, framed in close up and in profile. A zoom out by a handheld camera reveals a group of seated people in a large, rectangular white-washed brick room with paintings hung along its perimeter. Cuts, pans and zooms follow a gradual discussion of social issues as its jumps back and forth across the circle and the room. Towards the end of the film, discussion becomes lighter, emanating some laughter that reflects in the technique in the camera work. The technique remains mostly focused on faces, but becomes increasingly experimental to include focus on hand movements and gestures, parts of the face and body language. Some shots even appear confused or out of focus for a moment. Applause from the audience marks the end of the seminar. Ends after a dark, curly-haired man in a cap finishes his sentence and sits down. A tracking wave cuts the footage to black.. Tom McGrath issued an invitation to this event stating: ‘The Seminar will begin with an introductory talk by the social ecologist Maxwell Jones, who will then act as facilitator. It is expected that he will outline his basic philosophy of learning by interaction, with particular reference to therapeutic communities, schools and prisons. ’McGrath also gave a quick overview of Jones’ career and mentions the publication of a new book which may have sparked the seminar at time when Third Eye was already interested in the special unit at Barlinnie and working regularly with the art therapist Joyce Laing: ‘Maxwell Jones, who is now resident in Arizona, was instrumental in setting up the Henderson Hospital unit for character disorders and Dingleton Hospital, Melrose.
