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.

Action in Solidarity with Leonard Peltier

Coming up quick here - this Friday night, in fact - will be an action in solidarity with Leonard Peltier, instigated by the Phoenix Anarchist Coalition. This is to correspond with solidarity actions with him around the world this week. Look for us at Mill Ave and University in Tempe at 8pm; come join us. No big scene - we'll have candles and fliers and information about helping free Leonard. He has explicitly asked us all to be cool so that no one else ends up in jail or prison - which means we really don't need police to assure our safety or good conduct (bring cameras and Copwatchers anyway).
