Speak-Out About The Dekalb Jail Crisis and Prison Injustice Everywhere

People locked up at Dekalb County Jail are in a crisis. The food they eat is contaminated with mold, and so is the air they breathe. Their cell blocks are infested with flies and other insects. People are getting sick and being refused adequate medical help. Some prisoners have complained that they cannot breathe. Those who speak out are being attacked and isolated by guards. We cannot let this continue.

– Hear directly from folks formerly jailed at Dekalb, and speak out about the intolerable conditions in prison.
– If you have a story to tell, come share it!
– Show those currently behind the wall that we stand with them, and we won’t let their calls for help go unanswered.

Malaya Tucker has not been able to contact her son Darnell since their video visit on Sunday, in which he showed moldy food trays with insufficient food. Screenshots taken from another video visit went viral on social media on last Wednesday. On Thursday, guards entered Darnell’s cell and beat him up. They put him in solitary confinement and cut him off from communication with the outside. We have no idea of his health, safety or whereabouts. When prisoners speak out about mistreatment, we must stand up for them!
