first_imgSmart Communications logoMany do not realize that the mail one sends to an incarcerated loved one in Pennsylvania must now be sent to Smart Communications in St. Petersburg, Fla. There the mail is scanned, then sent digitally to prisons in the state, where copies are printed and distributed to recipients. The originals are kept for 45 days. Incarcerated people never receive the actual mail their loved ones sent.How and why did this happen?On Aug. 29, 2018, Pennsylvania Corrections Secretary John Wetzel ordered a lockdown of all state facilities after correctional officials allegedly got sick from substances in incoming mail. It didn’t matter that this highly suspect story was disproven by many. Plus, it is well-known that guards are the major source of drugs in prisons.Yet based on these fabricated accounts, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections contacted Jon Logan, owner and CEO of Smart Communications Holding, Inc. And on Sept. 4, 2018, in a no-bid, 3-year contract, the PA DOC executed an emergency agreement with Smart Communications to scan and process prisoners’ postal mail for $15.8 million. (tinyurl.com/3dvv9p3d)It is highly suspect that a company could be found and a plan could be implemented in six days; so, was this already planned? “They were the only company that could do it as quickly,” Wetzel claimed. We see this contract for what it truly is — yet another way to completely privatize every facet of an incarcerated person’s life. It extracts any human emotion (like getting a real drawing from your child instead of a copy) from the daily lives of the incarcerated.  It leaves feelings of simmering rage and despair. This is one of the reasons why there are so many angry and rebellious incarcerated people. The prison administrations’ solution is to implement yet more and more retaliations and punishments.This contract is paid for with tax dollars, leeching money from the families of the incarcerated. In frustration, many incarcerated people in Pennsylvania started to use email to communicate, even though it costs 25 cents a shot. However in order to use email, the incarcerated person (or their family) must purchase an electronic tablet at a grossly inflated price from the prison commissary.Smart Communications also offers the potential for deep surveillance. In March 2018, the company pitched a proposal for their Mailguard system to the Virginia DOC. It stated: “Investigators will have access to the postal mail sender’s email address, physical address, IP address, mobile cell number, GEO GPS location tracking, exact devices used when accessing system, any related accounts the sender may also make or use,” Fortunately their proposal was rejected.  (thevice.com, March 24)The renewal of this Smart Communications contract is in September, and Food Not Bombs Solidarity, along with incarcerated member Jerome Coffey, plans another demonstration to expose and protest the privatization schemes of the Prison Profiteers. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_img December 10, 2020 – Updated on March 26, 2021 Indian journalist charged over Facebook post urging respect for the rule of law News IndiaAsia – Pacific InternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Hostile decisions This is not the first time that the Meghalaya high court’s judges have issued a decision hostile to Mukhim. As RSF reported at the time, she and her newspaper’s publisher, Shobha Chaudhuri, were each condemned to pay 200,000 rupees (2,600 euros) in March 2019 for contempt of court because of an article drawing attention to a court directive on benefits for retired judges. The pair approached the Supreme Court and the decision was eventually stayed. Patricia Mukhim presents her latest book, entitled “Waiting for an Equal World: Gender in the Northeast,” in July 2019 (photo: SheThePeople.TV). And in April 2018, RSF called for a thorough investigation into a kerosene bomb attack on Mukhim’s home that was probably a reprisal for her investigative reporting on illegal mining in which Meghalaya state officials were allegedly involved. India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Follow the news on India RSF_en Urging Meghalaya’s chief minister to ensure that the assailants were prosecuted, Mukhim’s post argued that Meghalaya’s systematic failure to punish ethnic violence against its non-tribal minority put it in the category of a “failed state.” And she concluded by asking: “Should our non-tribal brethren continue to live in perpetual fear in their own state?” News June 10, 2021 Find out more “We call on the members of India’s supreme court to restore the rule of law by invalidating the Kafkaesque charges against Patricia Mukhim,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “This journalist is clearly the victim of a misuse of the justice system and is being punished for using her freedom of speech. The court must end this farce, which borders on judicial harassment.” India is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. “I put up the post as someone who believes in human rights and justice for all,” Mukhim told RSF. Her lawyer asked Meghalaya’s high court to dismiss the case on the grounds that a Facebook post calling for application of the rule of law couldn’t be regarded as promoting discord. But against all logic, the high court’s judges recently upheld the complaint’s validity. “I have no alternative but to approach the Supreme Court with the hope of getting justice there,” Mukhim said. News In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival —————————————————————————-Update, 25 March 2021In response to an appeal by Shillong Times editor Patricia Mukhim, India’s supreme court today quashed criminal charges brought against her last year in the northeastern state of Meghalaya over a Facebook post about the state’s systematic failure to punish ethnic violence. RSF hails this decision and hopes it will set a legal precedent that protects free speech and the right to investigate and question the actions of politicians.—————————————————————————–Shillong Times editor Patricia Mukhim is facing a possible combined sentence of ten years in prison as a result of her Facebook post on 4 July about a violent attack on five teenage members of Meghalaya’s “non-tribal” minority by suspected members of those officially known in India as “Scheduled Tribes,” who form the majority in Meghalaya. News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Indian judicial system to dismiss criminal charges against a newspaper editor in Shillong, the capital of the northeastern state of Meghalaya, over a Facebook comment saying those responsible for a case of communal violence should be prosecuted. to go further In response to a complaint about the post, the police brought three criminal charges against Mukhim – promoting enmity between different groups, statements conducive to public mischief, and defamation – which together carry a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.

first_img25 July 2007Mauritius-based Safal Investments, which owns steel-coating facilities in eastern and southern Africa, plans to build a US$100-million plant near Durban in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province.Business Day reports this week that the plant, to be built in Cato Ridge, is the company’s third investment in the country and will create about 300 jobs for the local community.Safal South Africa chief executive Ronnie Graham told Business Day that the Cato Ridge plant would produce 150 000 tons of coated steel a year in its first three to four years.“Strategically, it is a good area because of its proximity to the Durban port, which we believe is still the best for export and import,” Graham told Business Day. “It is also on the main railway line between Johannesburg and Durban.”The company will buy steel either locally from Mittal Steel, or import it from Japan and India, and then export the finished product to other parts of Africa.Graham told Engineering news earlier this month that construction on the plant would begin as soon as an environmental impact assessment was completed, possibly by October this year, and that the International Finance Corporation and the Industrial Development Corporation had expressed interest in the project.Graham also Business Day that Safal was negotiating with four unnamed black economic empowerment companies on the sale of a 30% stake in the project.According to the newspaper, the company’s other two investments are in the Safrintra steel roof company, which has factories in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, and in a local steel reinforcing company.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more


first_img1 July 2009South Africa’s new Department of Economic Development will be set up in phases, and is expected to be fully operational by April 2010, says Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel.Patel was addressing journalists at Parliament in Cape Town on Tuesday ahead of the Trade and Industry budget vote, which was shared by the Department of Economic Development and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).Until it receives its own budget from the National Treasury, the new department will receive its funds from the DTI.Patel said the costs involved in setting up the new department would be accommodated via a “ring-fenced item of the DTI’s budget” until the Appropriation Adjustment Bill in October, which makes provision for new departments.Patel said his department would be responsible for economic development policy making, planning and implementation, and would work collegially within the Cabinet to ensure coordination around job creation in South Africa.“The department will be responsible for developing economic policy with a broad, cross-cutting focus so that macro and micro-economic policy reinforce each other and are both aligned to the election mandate.“Some of the areas that the ministry will focus on, as soon as the department is fully set up, are the priorities set out by the President in the state of the nation address,” Patel added.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
