Phone Justice

I am an Alaskan prisoner at the Spring Creek Correction Center in Seward, Alaska. I would love to be able to call my family. Due to the extreme, outrageous expense, I cannot afford to nor can my family afford this expense. It costs over a dollar per minute. This is due to corrupt D.O.C. Alaska facility heads extorting money by obvious kickbacks and payoffs by such corrupt private phone companies such as Evercom. There is no justifiable reason for any prison to be connect to any private phone company. Also the Alaska D.O.C. does not want prisoners to get out of prison or to be close to their families in any manner. Alaska prisoners are none other than dollar signs to D.O.C. employees. It is a fact that D.O.C. employees are blatant liars and could care less about any prisoner or their family. The phone service is juts one of the many corrupt tactics used to embezzle money from prisoners and their families.

Hi, Earl

I am writing to let you know about Prison Action News, a biannual journal of prisoners' stories of resistance to incarceration. Written by prisoners and edited and distributed by outside volunteers, PAN has about 1,600 incarcerated subscribers across the US. It is a great outlet to both read and publish stories about fighting exorbitant phone prices, or any other oppressive aspect of prison life. If you would like a free subscription to PAN, write to:
