www.prisoncensorship.info is a media institution run by the Maoist Internationalist Ministry of Prisons. Here we collect and publicize reports of conditions behind the bars in U.$. prisons. Information about these incidents rarely makes it out of the prison, and when it does it is extremely rare that the reports are taken seriously and published. This historical record is important for documenting patterns of abuse, and also for informing people on the streets about what goes on behind the bars.

We hope this information will inspire people to take action and join the fight against the criminal injustice system. While we may not be able to immediately impact this particular instance of abuse, we can work to fundamentally change the system that permits and perpetuates it. The criminal injustice system is intimately tied up with imperialism, and serves as a tool of social control on the homeland, particularly targeting oppressed nations.

Update from Lawrence Correctional Center

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am writing this to give you an update from the Lawrence Correctional Center, in southern Illinois.

Since early November, we have seen an explosion of the COVID-19 virus at this gulag, and at their last report of December 18th, there were 829 cases of it – of about 1800 men total. With this rapid increase in cases, we saw the attempted responses of the administration be overwhelmed. Due to medical issues, I had been assigned to a room by myself, but when there was a massive outbreak of the virus on the other wing of my building, two days before Thanksgiving, they moved a man from that wing into my room, without testing him prior to the move. Not surprisingly, he brought the virus with him, and I ended up in isolation for 27 days, after I contracted the virus from him. In response to a grievance I filed, the gulag administration stated that they had “policies and procedures in place to help slow the spread of COVID”. Perhaps the individual responding to my grievance had previously worked as speechwriters for Donnie Trump, because that response reeks like a loaded baby diaper.
