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.

AZ Budget: New Times Coverage.

No details yet...

Verschoor Shows Up, Burns Burns Dems; Senate Passes Budget Bills

Senate President Bob Burns
After nearly four agonizing months, the Arizona State Senate has finally passed four bills that will cut about $450 million from the state's budget.

Like most things in the Legislature, this afternoon's agreement didn't come without a little bit of drama.

First and foremost: Bravo to Senator Thayer Verschoor for actually showing up today...
