Ce qui arrive aux prisonniers à l'isolement | Laura Rovner

Imaginez devoir vivre sans contact humain significatif pendant des années, voire des décennies, dans une cellule de la taille d'une petite d'une salle de bains. Voici la réalité de ceux qui vivent à l'isolement, une forme d'emprisonnement régulièrement imposée dans les prisons américaines. Dans cette conférence édifiante, l'avocate des droits civiques Laura Rovner nous emmène dans l'ADX, la seule prison « supermax » du gouvernement fédéral, et nous décrit les effets déshumanisants de la solitude à long terme sur l'esprit, la personnalité et la perception de soi. En émerge un plaidoyer puissant pour abolir l'isolement -- et la preuve l'intrication de nos impôts, de la sécurité publique et de nos valeurs. « Les prisons sont administrées en notre nom et à notre place, » nous dit-elle. « Nous devons être témoins. »

Imagine living with no significant human contact for years, even decades, in a cell the size of a small bathroom. This is the reality for those in long-term solitary confinement, a form of imprisonment regularly imposed in US prisons. In this eye-opening talk, civil rights lawyer Laura Rovner takes us to ADX, the US federal government's only supermax prison, and describes the dehumanizing effects of long-term solitude on the mind, personality and sense of self. What emerges is an urgent case for abolishing solitary confinement -- and evidence for how our tax dollars, public safety and values are implicated in it. "Prisons are administered in our name and on our behalf," she says. "We have an obligation to bear witness."

Imagine viver sem contato humano significativo por anos, até décadas, em uma cela do tamanho de um banheiro pequeno. Essa é a realidade para aqueles que estão em confinamento solitário prolongado, uma forma de prisão imposta regularmente nas prisões dos EUA. Nesta palestra reveladora, a advogada de direitos civis Laura Rovner nos leva à ADX, a única prisão de segurança supermáxima do governo federal dos EUA, e descreve os efeitos desumanos da solidão prolongada na mente, na personalidade e no senso de si. O que surge é um caso urgente para a abolição do confinamento solitário, e evidências de como nossos impostos, nossa segurança pública e nossos valores estão envolvidos. "As prisões são administradas em nosso nome", diz ela. "Temos a obrigação de prestar testemunho."
