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.

Alright, you guys all have to go register at Pearce's website - this is too bizarre. It's scary. Go ahead, get on his mailing list then go to the Life Liberty whatever site and check it out. You have to sign onto their beliefs to use it - check those out. Scary. Even more disturbing is that you have to have this special server or know this trick in order to get your email through the legislature, which only those who agree with Russ Pearce will have access to. Here's Russel's latest newsletter (doesn't it sound like a greeting from an alien? what happens to people who disagree with this man?): -----------------------------------

Greetings Margaret,

There is a new website out there called It is a free tool for good law abiding citizens to use in contacting legislators at the Arizona capitol. You can write one e-mail and this system will send a separate e-mail to those legislators that you specify. You can select all 90 legislators at the capitol or just the House or the Senate. You can also just select the party affiliation, the leadership or committee members from any of the committees.

Couple of things to keep in mind though and that is this, the site was just launched yesterday (July 29th) and there maybe a few changes that may need to be made so be mindful of that. The guys at Life Liberty Freedom have worked real hard on this project. Also in order to use this system you must agree to the terms and conditions as well as the political views of Life Liberty Freedom. If you agree to the political views, which personally I do, then sign up at This is one powerful tool for you to use in making your voice heard at the capitol. Go sign up now! Remember it is FREE!



P.S. Margaret, don't for get to pass this on.
