Australia: "I just need it to end"

// Series of testimonials “A day in prison” (13)*

In prison, days follow one another but are not always identical. The conditions of detention, the rhythm of the days, the possibility of receiving visits, medical treatment, the food, or still the access to the right for defence, vary considerably from one prison to another, from one country to another. Prison Insider publishes testimonials of people who live or have lived in prison and can share their experience. This series of testimonials, “A day in prison,” puts into words the varying realities of imprisonment around the world.
