Outrage over death of transgender woman in New York City

first_imgMembers of Workers World Party and New York City People’s Power Assemblies joined several hundred people in Manhattan’s Foley Square June 10 to demand justice for Layleen Polanco Xtravaganza, an Afro-Latinx transgender woman who died June 7 while incarcerated at the notoriously abusive Rikers Island prison. Layleen Polanco Xtravaganza was an iconic member of the House of Xtravaganza, a well-known “house” in the NYC ballroom scene, and her death sparked outrage in the community.Justice for Layleen Polanco protest, June 10.While supporters at the rally called for a fully transparent investigation into the cause of her death, of which the NYC Department of Corrections had not released any details, they blamed the cause of her death on anti-trans violence in the so-called “criminal justice” system itself. Layleen Polanco Xtravaganza had been in Rikers Island for two months because she could not afford $500 cash bail. Even though she was placed in a special unit for trans people to prevent anti-trans violence, these measures did not prevent her death.Layleen PolancoRikers Island needs to be dismantled, along with the entire mass incarceration system in the U.S. After the rally, her supporters took to the streets and marched through downtown Manhattan.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

30 years after the Camp Hill Uprising: Repression in Pennylvania’s prison system

first_imgOn Oct. 25, 1989, a three-day uprising took place at Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institution Camp Hill in response to overcrowding and administrative changes impacting visits, food from families, medical care and the termination of prison programs.Fire rages in one of the multiple buildings damaged or destroyed during the Camp Hill Uprising in October 1989.The prison, originally called White Hill, opened in 1941 as an industrial school for juvenile prisoners on 52 acres of property in Cumberland County. In the 1970s it was accredited by the state to house adult prisoners and certified as SCI Camp Hill.When the uprising happened, the facility designed to house 1,826 prisoners was overcrowded with 2,600 men.  By the time the uprising was put down on Oct. 28, over 100 people were injured, including guards and inmates; 14 prison buildings were destroyed, with an estimated damage of $57 million. In the weeks that followed over 1,200 prisoners still housed at Camp Hill were kept in leg irons and handcuffs and denied showers until an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit forced prison officials to back down.Four days after the Camp Hill uprising, then Pennsylvania Gov. Robert P. Casey held a press conference announcing he was appointing an independent commission to investigate Camp Hill. In the three decades that followed, conditions for Pennsylvania prisoners have only deteriorated as draconian state and federal measures, pushed by the agenda of criminal justice policyholders, including the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), were introduced.Privatizing prisons and breaking resistance ALEC is a Washington, D.C.-based public policy organization that supports conservative legislators. Launched in 1973 by Paul Weyrich (a Heritage Foundation founder and major New Right figure), ALEC exemplifies the overlap between the corporate sector and public policy. With over 40 percent of state legislators as members, ALEC represents a force in state capitols across the U.S. Of  more than 6,000 state legislators, approximately 2,500 are members of ALEC, including scores who hold key leadership positions.William Barr, currently President Trump’s hit man as U.S. Attorney General, in 1995 was a hardcore ALEC member and poster boy who used Pennsylvania [as the launching site] for ALEC policies. Barr, Sen. Steward Greenleaf (minority chairman of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee), and Rep. Jeff Piccola (Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee) did a press conference together about so-called crime to announce the agenda. In March 1995, Gov. Thomas Ridge appointed Martin F. Horn as Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (PADOC), giving him carte blanche to make dramatic changes in the state’s prison system. Both Ridge and Horn were staunch members of ALEC and shared its prison policies agenda.  On Oct. 24, 1995, six years after the uprising, Ridge and Horn spent over $2 million and authorized a joint federal and state task force to carry out an attack on predominantly African-American prisoners at SCI Graterford, the largest maximum security prison in the state. The state’s attack took place just nine days after the Million Man March in Washington, D.C.Making an example out of Graterford, Secretary Horn established operational manuals impacting policies in all state prisons and opened the way to privatize PADOC’s infrastructures, including medical service, phone and cable service, food packaging, commissaries and emails.Horn’s policy manuals included  physical removal of prisoners to areas sufficiently isolated to effectively break or seriously weaken close emotional ties; segregation of all natural leaders; use of cooperative prisoners as leaders; and prohibition of group activities not in line with brainwashing objectives.Clinton’s ‘crime bills’ and PennsylvaniaIn the early 1970s Pennsylvania state prisoners had filed a successful class action lawsuit challenging oppressive prison conditions. It resulted in a consent decree that established policies restricting prison officials handling of prisoners’ mail; guaranteed prisoner access to outside publications; established health care and sanitation standards; imposed restrictive standards for prison officials’ use of force; and prescribed detailed procedures for conducting cell searches.In 1996 President Bill Clinton signed the Prison Litigation Reform Act that terminated the consent decree and stripped prisoners of their civil liberties. In 1994 Clinton had signed a $30 billion crime bill, the largest in U.S. history, creating dozens of new federal capital crimes. On April 24, 1996 — political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal’s birthday [on death row at that time] — Clinton signed the Antiterrorism and Death Penalty Prevention Act which made capital appeals nearly impossible.Fast forward to 2011 when “one-term Tom,” i.e., Pennsylvania Gov. Thomas Corbett, appointed his personal friend and fellow Board of Pardon member John Wetzel as Secretary of PADOC. Wetzel pledged to boss Corbett that he would reduce the state prison population and save money.  In fact, Wetzel, in the lucrative business of exploiting prisoners by selling cells, brought Pennsylvania prisoners back from other states to which they had previously been transferred. The move was designed to take advantage of federal stimulus money, which Wetzel used to pay correctional officials overtime while shaving the PADOC budget.  In 2017 the Vermont DOC paid the PADOC $7 million per year for three years to house 270 prisoners, until two died at Camp Hill. In January 2019, under an interstate corrections compact, 224 inmates from Delaware prisons were moved to  PADOC jurisdiction.In conclusion, 30 years after the Camp Hill riot, the PADOC is not only “behind the times” —  it has gone from bad to worse. Wetzel is putting the finishing touches of oppression on prisoners, glorifying the Prison-Industrial Complex and allowing racist Jim Crow policies to be implemented by the policing industry.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Conservation Conference Kicks off On Off-Beat Note

first_img SHARE SHARE Scott SandersThe opening general session of the Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts opened on a note that had only marginal ties to soil conservation. Scott Russell Sanders, a retired Indiana University professor and author, was the first speaker at the 3 day  meeting in Indianapolis; but, instead of talking about soil and water conservation, Sanders lectured the over 400 in attendance on economic conservation.  His 45 minute harangue was a one-sided indictment of capitalism, consumerism, and the free market system.  In his presentation, called From Consumption to Conservation , he urged his audience to buy less, eat less, and waste less.  He blamed technology, the media, advertising, and the government for the social, environmental, and spiritual problems in the world today.

The Bench comprising CJI SA Bobde along with Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian was considering a Special Leave Petition(SLP) challenging Bombay High Court’s decision to uphold the Maharashtra State High Powered Committee’s recommendations to not release on emergency parole those prisoners convicted for offences punishable with less than 7 years under Special Acts such as NDPS Act, UAPA, MCOCA etc. The CJI indicated that the Bench would pass a reasoned order wherein the Maharashtra High Power Committee will be at liberty to modify its classification in accordance with the on-ground conditions. Advocate SB Talekar appearing for the Petitioners apprised Court that it was a grave situation where more than 10 prisoners had died. “We will pass a reasoned order. We will observe that High Powered Committee will be at liberty to change its norms as per changing conditions”, declared the CJI without going in to further arguments. Medha Patkar, NGO National Alliance for People’s Movement (of which Patkar is the convenor) and Mumbai-based activist Meera Sadanand Kamath are the petitioners in the SLP.Advocates S B Talekar, PB Suresh,Vipin Nair, Karthik Jayshankar, Sughosh SN appeared for the Petitioners. Pursuant to the Supreme Court directing all states to constitute a High Powered Committee (HPC) in order to release prisoners on interim bail or emergency parole in an attempt to maintaining social distancing in the prisons during the pandemic, the Maharashtra HPC classified prisoners for temporary release on emergency parole as well as interim bail. The HPC on 25.03.2020 and 11.05.2020 made these classifications whereby it was directed that all such persons who are accused or convicted of offences punishable with imprisonment of 7 years or less shall be released on interim bail or emergency parole as the case may be. However, it was held that these directions would not apply to the prisoners who are accused of offences under the Special Acts or the serious economic offences. It was further directed that jail authorities would favourably consider the release of the convicts who are undergoing imprisonment for offences punishable with less than 7 years imprisonment, on emergency parole. Furthermore, release of those convicted for offences punishable with more than 7 years imprisonment was restricted to only such prisoners who had returned on time twice in the past when released either on parole or furlough, but excluded all such convicted prisoners who are undergoing punishment under the special Acts from the scope of its directions. The classification prescribes exclusion of certain convicts under the Special Acts for release on emergency parole on the ground that additional conditions or special procedure were prescribed for release on bail under such Acts. This, argues the petition, resulted from a ‘total non-application of mind.’ “The HPC excluded the prisoners who were accused of offences punishable under the Special Acts for the purpose of availing interim bail on the ground that such Acts required observation of a separate procedure or imposition of additional conditions for the purpose of grant of bail. However, most of the special Acts did not provide for any special procedure or additional conditions for grant of bail… …Once the HPC had classified the prisoners after applying the relevant parameters, it was not required to apply those and other relevant parameters once again by the lower courts, thereby making the entire exercise of classification of prisoners for the purpose of decongestion in the prisons, a futile attempt and illusory.” -reads the petition Claiming that the prescription of additional safeguards while granting bail cannot be a ground for total exclusion of all such prisoners who were accused of offences under the special Acts, it is urged that the classification is made without any intelligible differentia or a rational nexus with the objects sought to be achieved by such classification. The High Court, vide order dated 05.08.2020 upheld these classifications. The petitioners clarify that the present plea is limited to challenging the High Court Order and the HPC’s classification of not allowing parole to prisoners convicted under Special Acts. Challenging the High Court judgment, is thus urged that the Bombay High Court “has erroneously upheld not only the classification of the prisoners done by the HPC but even the additional conditions/restrictions on grant of temporary release of prisoners imposed by HPC holding that the prisoners had no vested right to be released either on emergency parole or interim bail; and that the classification done by the High Powered Committee did not violate any of the fundamental rights of the prisoners.” Next Storylast_img read more
