THIS BLOG is NOW RETIRED

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.

David Rovics: We Are Everywhere

To my fellow activists now struggling through life - let this be a reminder that you are not alone and that we desperately need you here. All the injustice, grief, war, and human suffering calls for us to stay and do everything we can about it - you can't help us anymore when you're gone. Don't give up the fight - your last shred of hope may just keep someone else alive, too.

No More Deaths Phoenix: Meeting Change

Migrant Pack Party!

Greetings volunteers!

Just a reminder that we are NOT meeting on Tuesday for a regular NMD-Phoenix meeting. Instead, we are packing 500 food packs to take to the desert.  We will need as many helpers as possible to come and help us make the food packs. 6:00pm at the Quaker Meeting House.

We will buy the food, but you could bring the socks!  We hope to put a pair of socks in each pack...that's 500 socks.  So, head over to Savers, Goodwill, Target, Costco...buy a bag of socks!

Location:  Quaker Friends Meeting House - 1702 E. Glendale Avenue (17th Street and Glendale)
Time:  Tuesday, August 25, 6:00pm.

Thanks, and look forward to seeing you there!
