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.

New Yorker Article On Arpaio

Just had this forwarded from a fellow abolitionist: here's the link to the article; you'll have to register at the site to read more than just the abstract, but it should be well worth it. Word has it that he's already sending out letters to his "supporters" about his next run for office, and how unfairly persecuted he is. Poor guy...
