I began this blog in May 2009 following the death of Marcia Powell at Perryville State Prison in Goodyear, Arizona. It is not intended to prescribe the path that leads to freedom from the prison industrial complex.

Rather, these are just my observations in arguably the most racist, fascist, militaristic state in the nation at a critical time in history for a number of intersecting liberation movements. From Indigenous resistance to genocidal practices, to the fight over laws like SB1070 and the ban on Ethnic Studies, Arizona is at the center of many battles for human rights, and thus the struggle for prison abolition as well - for none are free until all are. I retired the blog in APRIL 2013.

Finding Governor Brewer.

FYI: I'll be out of town myself, but here is the link to the Governor's schedule for the week of June 8. Presumably she'll be in budget negotiations otherwise.

Also, the official Senate Appropriations Committee Meeting is tomorrow (Tuesday, June 9) at 1:30pm in SHR109.

Check Middle Ground Prison Reform's website for budget updates the next couple of weeks; they seem very involved in the process.

Please post a correction if you have any news or information I missed.
