Urgent: Anarchist political prisoner Xinachtli in danger of heatstroke

Xinachtli is a revolutionary Chicano anarchist political prisoner, jailhouse lawyer, and member of the Certain Days collective, who is held in the Texas prison system as a result of disarming a police officer who was threatening his life. He is currently in severe medical danger. As a 67-year-old man who takes several medications for hypertension and also has Hepatitis C, he has serious medical needs and is sensitive to the heat. Staff at the Polunsky Unit, where he is currently held, are refusing to give him access to a fan, or even to use his own funds to purchase one, even though Xinachtli warns that he is on the verge of heatstroke. In addition, he has not yet been given all his property, including legal papers, after a recent medical transfer from the Allred Unit. UPDATE July 24: As a follow-up on this, TDCJ have now issued a statement saying that Xinachtli has now been given access to a fan, so it looks like no further action is needed on this for now.
