Trust and humanity are every day seeming more elusive as we struggle to sort fact from fiction, love from treachery – and human resiliency keeps us from despair.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Prisoners who, like me, are trapped in federal and state prisons in close proximity to these toxic chemical plants rely on free world people to confront these violators of the public’s trust. Don’t be silent.
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.
“When I embraced this life as a freedom fighter and whistleblower, I knew there would come a time when the oppressors would place me in harm’s way and then feign ignorance. I think it’s time we all got more serious about protecting our most advanced political elements.” – Comrade Malik
“The struggle to restore the soil and the struggle to create a just social order have up to now been carried on mostly as parallel political movements, without much mutual awareness."
Comrade Malik, currently in solitary confinement after being attacked at USP Beaumont, urgently needs to get out of there and into an institution in California. Prison officials need to know that many, many people are watching out for him and they can’t get away with any more dirty tricks.
On this 50th anniversary of the Black Panthers’ Free Breakfast Program, let us meditate on the incredible legacy of the original Black Panther Party. Although this is a plea for help and a call to action, this piece is also a dedication.
Make no mistake about it, comrades, I was sent to this high security facility because I continue to speak TRUTH to power and I won’t be silenced – period.
Romello writes: “I need y’all help! I miss my child! My daughter needs me.” Please contact the federal prosecutors in Houston today; persuade them to drop the charges. And urge your friends on social media to do the same. Bring Romello home to little Hazel!
Sisters and Brothers, there is nothing more important to me than the children! Nurturing and educating our children is one of the most important things that we can do.
I want all of you to understand that as soon as a prisoner is released from prison or jail, she or he is expected to find a job and pay taxes. So, with this in mind, why in the hell can’t all states restore our right to vote?
It is with great joy that I announce my parole from Texas state prisons (TDCJ)!
Clear your calendar for the third Sunday in August 2019 and make your way to Terre Haute, Indiana. Kwame “Beans” Shakur is a revolutionary scholar and activist who is organizing the First Annual REBUILD: New Afrikan People’s Assembly Conference at the Booker T. Washington Community Center on Aug. 18, 2019, in beautiful Terre Haute, Indiana.
