Tell prison administrations: lift ban on SF Bay View newspaper

Prison administrations in several states have banned prisoners from receiving the San Francisco Bay View National Black Newspaper, a grassroots paper that has published articles by and about prisoners for decades. Background:
Un-Ban the Bay View!
13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
Voice of Detroit: Prisoners Teargassed, Zip-Tied, Left Out in Rain

The bans began in July 2016 in an attempt to silence those preparing for the nationwide prison strike that began on September 9.
 
Since the strike began, dozens of prisoners have reportedly been placed in solitary confinement, transferred to distant facilities, or attacked with weapons and tear gas. In Texas prisons, there has been a spate of suicides.
 
Articles sent from prisons to the SF Bay View reporting these conditions have been continuously intercepted.
 
Denying access to the SF Bay View violates prisoners' rights to freedom of speech and press.

Please sign this petition to prison administrators:

Lift the ban on the San Francisco Bay View newspaper.
