No Postage Stamps Allowed on Michigan Mail
Our most recent censorship notice came from GOA T. Bates at Thumb Correctional Facility in Michigan. The reason our mail was censored? “MAIL - WITH LABEL AND POSTAGE STAMP”. So you can send mail to prisoners in Michigan as long as you don’t put a postage stamp on it. Do they understand how the postal service works?
Of course they do. Violations of our First Amendment rights for illogical reasons is common occurrence here in these United $nakes. There are no rights that we don’t stand up for and defend. Right now we are behind on fighting censorship battles, but we could use your help in increasing the pressure on such egregious cases as this. See our Prison Censorship database for examples of protest letters, and our legal/caselaw page for existing court precedents. Please email us any letters you send, or about any phone calls you make or if you have any questions.
