Letters protest Florida’s ban on the ‘Militant’ in state prisons

September 28, 2020

Join fight to overturn suppression of Militant in Florida prisons. Above, some letters sent so far.

Florida prison officials have banned four recent issues of the Militant, preventing them from reaching dozens of subscribers behind bars. The Militant  is urging supporters of freedom of the press and prisoners’ rights to join in pressing Florida Department of Corrections Literature Review Committee to lift the bans. Send letters to Dean Peterson, Literature Review Committee, Florida Department of Corrections, 501 South Calhoun Street, Tallahassee, FL 32399 or via email at Allen.Peterson@fdc.myflorida.com, with a copy to the Militant.
