Dagenham News is the focus of The Evening Wiki, in addition to news from Barking, Havering, and Redbridge. CEO Jabari Cubane says “we will be the biggest media outlet situated in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham”.
Jabari had the following to say: “I started Transparency after learning of the corrupt nature of the National Probation Service. I do not assume all officers are corrupt, nor even a majority, but there is certainly a percentage of practitioners engaging in deeply concerning practices, with the support of senior officers.
At some point in 2023, we will launch a national campaign to raise awareness of these practices and the legislation in place being manipulated to enable it. It must stop as we are putting innocent people in grave danger by escalating the risk of ex-offenders.
By unlawfully recalling ex-offenders to prison we are further plunging them into a pro-criminal lifestyle, as it festers anger towards the very services designed to reduce the risk they pose to the community, provokes familial breakdown, exacerbates drug misuse and resettlement issues, and damages their mental health.
Our public bodies complain of overcrowding in prisons and the inadequacy of public services in dealing with the ever-growing sea of people on probation, yet they fail to acknowledge that false or malicious imprisonment and overzealous probation personnel greatly contribute to this problem.”
Transparency call themselves ‘rights reformers and revolutionaries’, dedicated to challenging the problematic status quo in order to elevate the voice of the voiceless. They see greatening the representation of Havering, Redbridge, Barking, and Dagenham news in the press as instrumental in achieving this.
Just by speaking to The Evening Wiki’s CEO I could see how passionate he is about those who feel voiceless in London, and doing all he can to provoke positive change, and we are excited to see what they go on to achieve.
