Hello from Pelican Bay State Prison - SHU. I have some legal news. The following prisoners, Bwana Millon, James X. Williamson, Thomas Fetters, and Nicholas X. Delamat have joined in a writ of mandamus petition in state superior court, county of Del Norte (case no. 91-141-X). The prisoners are African (Millon, Williamson, Delamar) and a North American anti-imperialist (Fetters) and have joined as co-petitioners to address lack of medical care, a futile administrative appeals system, and physical and verbal abuse by correctional officers. The struggle continues as author of this letter has been verbally threatened by law library personnel, and copies of this 50 page plus legal document were mixed-up when photocopied. Issues in the writ include direct violations of petitioner's civil and human rights. This control unit is so filled with abuses and corruption that a federal investigation appears warranted.
