Prisons Censor Bay View Newspaper – Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee • Oakland, California

The April issue of the Bay View is saying prisons are still censoring the subscriptions to the paper! Now, a prison at Holman is hunger striking to protest the censorship.

 

I’d like to nip this in the bud. I’ve been churning out appeals to state after state and prison after prison that rejected the last several Bay Views (different issues for different reasons, though prison strikes seem to scare them the most) and even winning a few, but this is California, and we can’t let them get away with this here at home.Though this rejection applies to only one prison, New Folsom, it’s the one that’s wired to the capitol — and the guards’ union, CCPOA, is still one of the most powerful lobbies there, not to mention the insatiable budget appetite of CDCr. So New Folsom is a bellwether; other California prisons will follow suit if New Folsom succeeds.
