Default New documents shed light on canceled prison visits in August

New documents shed light on canceled prison visits in August

"The Florida Department of Corrections took the uncommon step of canceling visits from friends and family at all of its major prisons for a weekend in August, saying a planned march for inmates’ rights in Washington, D.C., might have encouraged prisoners to take some sort of action from behind bars.

Records obtained by the Orlando Sentinel this month show activist groups outside the prison walls had sent prisoners newsletters encouraging nonviolent protests and mentioned disturbances in four Florida prisons from September 2016 — the 45th anniversary of the Attica Prison uprising in New York.
