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.

Colbert Nation: AZ Justice for Sale

(Great take on the nuttiness of the logic that follows from the plan to privatize all the state's prisons)

"Let's replace the long arm of the law with the invisible hand of the market..."

"Nothing will motivate police like arresting on commission..."
