Herman Ferguson received a call today from one of Bashir's friends at
Great Meadow Correctional Facility. Bashir is still on lockdown since
January 19th, as the hearing regarding the "political contraband" found in
his cell has been postponed several times. Although he is permitted to
have visits, he cannot make any phone calls. Now the prison has turned out
the lights in his cell, so Bashir spends all his time in the dark.

This outrageous sensory deprivation can only worsen Bashir's health. He is
still being denied his medical checkups and monthly bloodwork needed
following his open heart surgery. He is also not receiving necessary
medical attention for his diabetes.

The "political contraband" found in his cell includes some pictures from
the 35th Anniversary Reunion of the BPP and some writings by the New Black
Panther Party. Of course, all of this had already gone through the prison
mail system before Bashir received it.

Please continue to call and/or write to demand that Bashir be released
from lockdown. Stress that Bashir needs his monthly checkups and bloodwork
following his open heart surgery.

While the prison apparently does not have the time to provide Bashir with
needed medical care, they obviously DO have the time to harass him.
