This chapter examines the efforts of the Indochinese Communist Party (ICP) to instigate prisoner resistance movements during the period from 1930 to 1936. It describes how the ICP conducted extensive political work in prisons to rebuild its organizational apparatus, recruit and train new members, spearhead demonstrations for improved prison conditions and maintain communication with communist forces still at large. It suggests that the balance of power within the colonial prison was the result of administrative shortcomings.

Keywords:   ICP, prisoner resistance movements, organizational apparatus, prison communications, colonial prison
