SUPPORT your local Prison Abolitionist!

To all my AZ friends/family: Thanks so much for your and likes and hope and encouraging words these past 4 1/2 years. You helped me survive some of the loneliest days and hardest nights I've endured yet by keeping our connections alive across 2000 miles.

My 55th birthday is June 13, 2019, and I plan to celebrate it in PHX (details to be announced). I'm leaving Michigan (god willing) by May 25 - and should land in an undisclosed location in the Deep Southwest soon after.

Here's my PAYPAL link for anyone who wants to shoot me $10 bucks or throw a big impromptu anarchist talent show and pass a hat or something to help me make it home. Once I land I'll be back to work on my art again, and will send a homemade gift to everyone I can...


And don't forget to pick up PJ Starr's 2016 documentary film about the life ad death of Marcia Joanne Powell:



so please share with all our friends!!

THANK YOU and MUCH to all, near and far.

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.

No More Deaths' Day In Court

Just some interesting clips. Read the whole thing at the link

From today's AZ Republic Editorial: re Water Effort...

"Men, women and children continue to die along Arizona's southern border. According to the Border Patrol, 124 people died in the Tucson Sector from Oct. 1 to June 30. ..
...Members of No More Deaths have been found guilty of littering after leaving bottles of water on the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge for just such migrants. One member faces a possible year in prison or a $10,000 fine when he returns to federal court Aug. 11."

--------------------------------- now this is my editorial.

I think thousands of people should show up with jugs of water the day of Walt Staton's sentencing. The court, the department of justice, the state in all its crazy forms needs to know that if they put that man away for even one day, they'll have to put us all away. And he shouldn't have to pay a single dime. Humanitarian aid is never a crime. Right?

So, August 11. Keep it open. (Is that considered "conspiracy?")
