Not quite a month ago, I wrote that we at Black Agenda Report had received word of a new
self-organized hunger strike among prisoners in Georgia's notorious Diagnostic &
Classification Prison at Jackson, the same place where Troy Davis was murdered by the
state a couple years ago. We had no details beyond a single brief note and a list of
prisoners who'd signed a letter. Since then a second communication from the prisoners at
Jackson has been relayed to us from our friends at the Freedom Archives.

This note says that eight prisoners are still refusing food and are on the receiving end of
abuse and threats from correctional officers at Jackson. The note also sheds some chilling
light on the reason for the prisoners' self-organized action.

In a pattern all too familiar, the prisoners allege that they are being isolated and confined
to Jackson's Special Management Unit, a prison within a prison to in order cover up offical
misconduct, including alleged sexual abuse by correctional officers and supervisors. In the note reproduced below, the prisoners go so far as to accuse by name a supervising
Correctional officer, Lt. Michael Kyles of being the perpetrator of sexual abuse and of
threatening prisoners who reach out to the public.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
