Comrade Malik: Is prison authorities’ real plan ‘Let the prisoners die’?

April 18, 2020 – Like many of you in the free world, I have been monitoring closely the daily COVID-19 briefings broadcast from the White House. I have also been observing and analyzing the propaganda disseminated by the mainstream media in regard to the deadly pandemic.

Comrade Malik: Free our elders now!

COVID-19 test kits needed for Federal Bureau of Prisons now! Screening...

COVID-19 test kits must be provided for employees and prisoners who work and are housed in facilities operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. I have engaged in some investigative journalism and discovered that prison administrators at the Federal Correctional Complex at Pollock, Louisiana, have ordered screening for all federal employees entering the federal prison complex at Pollock daily, but because of a shortage of COVID-19 test kits, the BOP employees are not being tested!

North Carolina prisoners plan grievance submission to US DOJ on May...

“Dear U.S. Attorney General: For over 100 years, citizens born and naturalized in the U.S. who have been convicted of crime have endured the inhumane indignity of being stripped of our citizenship and right to vote through felony disenfranchisement by way of the United States Constitution’s 13th Amendment. Additionally, citizens who have been arrested or continue to be housed in jails and prisons nationally in all 50 sovereign states have been subjected to the conspiratorial practice of police and/or prison officials who violate our First Amendment right to free speech as well as political association through on-going censorship practices that limit what we can read or write and to whom.” – Excerpt of grievance crafted by North Carolina Department of Correction prisoners Randy Watterson and Joseph “Shine White” Stewart

Civic engagement of Texas college students obstructed: We must rock the...

The growing interest of 18-30-year-olds in the voting and legislative process has scared the Republicans in Texas. Scared them to the point of creating laws such as HB 1888 that block access to the voting box!

Why I fight so hard for our people

If you make your living off of incarcerating poor Black, Latinx and white human beings, why in the world would you be interested in turning out whole human beings from these slave kamps? It is not in their interest to help us!

We must collectively champion the restorative justice policies of Chesa Boudin

The election of Chesa Boudin serves as a paradigm shift in what we have become accustomed to as criminal justice in Amerika. He is intimately familiar with the deleterious effect and collateral damage that lengthy prison sentences can have on the moral fabric of a family.

Liberate the Caged Voices: Free Sitawa!

Sitawa, along with three other strong and principled leaders of the Pelican Bay Short Corridor Collective, inspired 30,000 courageous prisoners, who, in their struggle for freedom from the torture of solitary confinement – or the threat of it – chose to shun violence and rather embrace a peaceful strategy in order to bring about much needed change.

Comrade Malik: USP Pollock! but not quite yet

I feel like Schleprock, the character on “The Flintstones” with the dark cloud following him around! The U.S. Bureau of Prisons (BOP) has chosen to transfer me to USP Pollock in Louisiana, whereas I’d requested transfer to California, where a home and job are waiting.

The reality of federal prison, Part 1

These drastic changes like video visits and lockdowns are being gradually introduced and are creating a more inhumane environment. Will this stop the drugs and violence? I think not.

Lockdowns and violence persist at USP Beaumont

In the year 2020, support our incarcerated journalists, activists and freedom fighters. Send a resounding message to the Federal Bureau of Prisons that free speech rights of all prisoners must be respected.

I will not be silenced!

The Trump administration has an overt and covert campaign of suppression aimed at journalists, activists and servants of the people – including Comrade Malik, who plans to edit the Bay View upon his release.
