Postage is one of our biggest expenses. Why not send a book of stamps or two to POB 40799 SF, CA 94140 next time you're at the post office? help out

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.

Bogus Writeups in North Carolina Extend Solitary

For every infraction we get we are charged $10 and our time on long-term segregation starts over. If a certain officer doesn't like you or they have malice in their heart all they have to do is write you up and $10 is deducted from our personal account. The officers who neglect us of our rights are the same officers that have the power to write us up at any time they feel like whether we are in violation of the rules or not. Because they know it will keep us behind these doors 24 hours a day for another year where we are limited to the opportunity to spread the word and liberate comrades from ignorance and let them know we as one need to stand up against this prison system here in North Carolina.

North Carolina is a state with over 52,000 people incarcerated and more being added daily! The unit I am on is a segregation unit where political prisoners, gang members and others are housed for years at a time. I'd say 30% of the prisoners back here get a write up on a daily basis. Some of us who are in the sights of these tyrant officers receive 5 or 6 write ups a week just because the officers have the power to do so. I strive daily to mitigate our situation. But it's impossible when these guys around me lay down and accept what's going on around them. It's also impossible without access to the public and without help. The money taken from us funds the fascist and imperialistic government of this state.
