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.

Education: Where is Arizona Headed?

"The Morning Scoop" with the Arizona Capitol Times, is hosting a  panel discussion with State Superintendent Tom Horne, several legislators, and other important people in education.  Good opportunity to raise questions about the role of schools in the prison industrial complex, and the responsibility of the department to try to prevent youth from ending up in prison. Be creative.


Locale: Tom's Restaurant & Tavern, 
             2 N. Central Ave. 
Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2009. 
Time: 7:15am - 8:15am.
