The Missions of Impossible Contact

The missions of impossible contact:

A perplexing situation awaits every prisoner who tries to reach out in loneliness, to communicate with family and loved ones on the outside world. Correctional facilities replaced New England telephone system with the Global Telephone Company in Texas. A privatized organization, and the rates for these calls are way too high in cost for poor families; single mothers with loved ones incarcerated struggle to keep up with the high cost. What this creates is hardship and stress which destroys the cement of any relationship under-going the reality that confronts all love-affairs that exist behind the curtains of incarcerated men and women. There must be some sort of phone justice surrounding the high rates, and being refunded when losing money to this company is impossible, there's no relief out-reach.

We cry out for aid in establishing communication with Global-Tel to stop future issues at hand.

Hi, Rickey

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 to subscribe to PAN, write to:
