The Curtain of Silence by C. Clark Kissinger

It is illustrative how much the campaign to execute Muma Abu-Jamal is
carried forward on the wings of official censorship. The most recent
example is the attempt of the US Bureau of Prisons to prevent radio
journalist Noelle H from conducting a recorded interview with me. Ms.
Hanrahan, who is seeking to interview me for KPFA-FM in Berkeley,
California, has been told that she can do the interview, but Warden Dennis
Hasty is exercising his discretion to bar her from bringing recording
equipment into the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center, where I am
currently a guest.

Presumably Ms. Hanrahan is also free to photograph me, as long as she doesn’
t bring a camera along.

This incident is yet another example of growing moves by prison authorities
cross the country to stifle the voices of the 2 million who are behind bars.
Noelle Hanrahan, and the Prison Radio Project, have been at the forefront of
the battle to allow these voices to be heard.

More particularly, this is a reprise of the government’s attempt to censor
the voice of Mumia. It was Noelle Hanrahan who first went into Pennsylvania
prisons to record Mumia’s voice and make his audio journalism available to
millions. When Pennsylvania authorities cut off Mumia’s access to audio and
video journalists, as punishment for publishing his first book, Live from
Death Row, Mumia took them into federal court and won. The federal courts
ruled that Pa could not single out Mumia for this kind of censorship. The
Pennsylvania prison system responded by changing its rules to prevent all
Pennsylvania prisoners from being recorded.

People everywhere must speak out against the wall of silence that official
are seeking to build around America’s two million prisoners. CCK
