Received from Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund

Hands on the Globe

Overturn the Ban of REVOLUTION

at Pelican Bay State Prison
and All Other Prisons!

45 prisoners in the hellish supermax Pelican Bay State Prison in California subscribe to Revolution newspaper through Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund (PRLF). In February 2010, Revolution was officially banned there and at California 's Chuckawalla State Prison. It's also been banned in Illinois ' Menard and other state prisons. 

PRLF, which currently provides subscriptions to almost 800 prisoners around the country, has announced a suite of major initiatives, including legal, political, fundraising and cultural efforts, to overturn the ban on Revolution and expand its ability to provide revolutionary literature to prisoners throughout U.S. prisons.

Come to a panel discussion about the ban on Revolution and how people can be part of overturning it. The panel will feature Clyde Young of Revolution newspaper, the new Director of PRLF and possibly more.

A statement now being circulated to overturn the ban says, "Prisoners are human beings! And as human beings they have the right to develop as critical thinkers and explore alternative solutions to the plight of the people and of the planet itself."

As one prisoner in the Midwest wrote, "This is a fight that we must not concede to the enemy. We must prevail! Our future depends upon it! We must fight this ban on all fronts: in the streets, in the courts, and in the media."
