PA: Inmates in Pennsylvania launch boycott of prison profiteers

[workers.org – 9/27/18]

“I am going to boycott the third-party correspondence system,” Bryant Arroyo, an activist and organizer currently detained at SCI Frackville in central Pennsylvania, told this WW reporter during an extended Sept. 23 interview.

Arroyo urges all prisoners to immediately cease sending and accepting mail in response to the draconian new prison policies of current Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf.

Eliminating the right of prisoners to send and receive correspondence via postal service is the most controversial aspect of a sweeping crackdown imposed in September by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. Prisoners will no longer be allowed to receive mail directly at state correctional facilities. Instead, their mail is being routed through a third-party company that rakes in profits from the enslavement of U.S. workers.

    Every prison should be lucky to have someone like Bryant Arroyo. Keep moving forward, Mr. Arroyo!

    Making profits off of prisons is immoral. Period. No surprise that immoral people are drawn to it like a drug.

      This is just unbelievable. What a scam!! This “family owned” (oh, how benevolent) business is ripping off tax payers and lining their pockets and those of the PA pols and beaureaucrats that allow them to get away with it. Scan and then forward copies of mail? What about little kid’s drawings, and perfumed love letters? Jesus, this angers me to no end. God bless Mr. Arroyo. I hope he’s successful and that, when he gets out, he’s 10 times more powerful!
      As a side note, I’m reminded of what incredible talent goes to waste behind prison walls and I’m glad this guy’s, while maybe throttled a little, are not idle.
