NJ Prisoner Wins Censorship Suit

In April, 1991, New Jersey DOC officials at the Trenton prison banned MIM Notes (journal of the Maoist International Movement) because it contained articles on oppression at Trenton. The DOC said all future issues would also be banned. One of the prisoners, Kevin Thomas, filed suit in state court challenging the censorship and won. On March 31, 1991, the New Jersey Court of Appeals ruled that the DOC had violated its own rules in censoring MIM Motes.

Political and revolutionary literature is a key effort in the struggle for progressive change in the Amerikan gulag and all efforts must be made to challenge prison officials efforts at censorship. MIM regularly reports on prison struggle around the country as well as providing news and analysis from a Maoist perspective. For more information write to: MIM Notes, P.O. Box 3576, Ann Arbor, MI. 48106-3576.
