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.

Dying to Get In
undocumented immigration at the US/MX border


"Dying To Get In: Undocumented Immigration at the U.S./Mexico Border" offers a first hand look at the harsh reality of today's border crossing.
Ramon, a 50-year-old college graduate and father of two, explains his journey to the border in search of medical care for his sick son. Francisca, a 32-year-old mother, explains how her faith in God will guide her husband and 5-year-old child across the dangerous Sonoran desert. And a father, guiding his 5 children, all under age 13, explains how choosing the right coyote can be the difference between life and death.
The men, women, and children tell a story of border crossing and determination that applies to virtually all of us. They tell a story of the American Dream. By relying on faith, laughter, and family, today's migrants cope with the struggle to survive.
