This Man Says Inmates At His Prison Are Getting No Medical Care For Covid-19

"This fall students in Bard College's Human Rights program teamed up with CUNY School of Law students to make short video presentations that accompanied the petitions filed by three men incarcerated in New York State who were seeking clemency from Governor Andrew Cuomo. Unfortunately, the Governor did not use his power to free any of them.

The #coronavirus has hit New York jails and prisons hard, and one of the men the students worked with, David Sell, has been an eyewitness to the catastrophe unfolding inside #WendeCorrectionalFacility. The students reached him on the phone earlier this week, and within 48 hours produced a video that conveys his story. BuzzFeed News properly
describes it as "harrowing." You can watch it, and the longer appeal for #clemency that they produced with David in the fall, here":

In a harrowing video, David Sell describes his experience in a situation that health experts say is a “tinderbox” just waiting to ignite.

“It should be nothing short of terrifying for any activist challenging corporate power and the oil industry in the U.S.,” said Paul Paz y Miño, associate director of Amazon Watch, an organization devoted to the protection of the rainforest and Indigenous people in the Amazon basin. “They’ve made it clear there’s no amount of money that’s too much to spend on this case,” he said of Chevron. “They will stop at nothing.”
