In Arizona, the Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry (ADCRR) has withheld select issues of The Nation from incarcerated subscribers at least five times in the past 18 months. We’re working with the ACLU’s National Prison Project to assert their First Amendment rights; the ACLU sent a letter to authorities at the ADCRR challenging its absurd decision this summer. Nation editor D.D. Guttenplan, together with editorial director and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel and president Bhaskar Sunkara tell the whole story: “The Arizona Prison System Is Censoring The Nation. We’re Doing Something About It.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nicolas Niarchos was on assignment for The Nation with Congolese journalist Joseph “Jeef” Kazadi. Both were detained, and while Niarchos was released and expelled from the country, Kazadi, who is Congolese, remains in jail in Kinshasa. Guttenplan and The Nation called on the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo to immediately release the detained journalist—and decried the country’s lurch toward authoritarianism under President Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo. ⁣
