*SF Bay View Editor Malik Washington* continues to face persecution 
<https://48hills.org/2021/01/covid-outbreak-and-media-crackdown-at-private-halfway-house-in-tenderloin/> by 
the *$2.27B for-profit prison multinational, Geo Group*, who profit from 
caging people at 111 Taylor St. 
<https://wearedefender.com/111-taylor> and many other re-entry 
facilities, private jails, and ICE Detention Centers 
<https://laist.com/2019/12/27/california-new-private-for-profit-immigration-detention-center-contracts.php> across 
California. Malik was severely retaliated against for releasing a public 
memo documenting the preventable coronavirus outbreak at his halfway 
house. In response, the facility extended his sentence at 111 Taylor, 
stole his phone, and put a gag order on him on what is the most 
egregious attack on journalism and Malik's constitutional right to 
freedom of speech. Malik sued them for violating his rights and now 
they are threatening to send him back to jail.

*This Sunday, March 7, join us from 12-2pm at 111 Taylor Street as we 
1) Malik's freedom
2) California cuts all contracts with for-profit prison corporations
3) An end to the attack on Black Liberation Journalism! For silencing 
Malik's voice is silencing the voice of the SF Bay View 

****Did you know the SF Bay View distributes 20,000 newspapers per month 
within the U.S. Prison System and for FREE within Bay Area Black 
neighborhoods? It is crucial to keep the newspaper alive at a time when 
Black voices, and most especially Black incarcerated voices, continue to 
be silenced! *
