SUPPORT your local Prison Abolitionist!

To all my AZ friends/family: Thanks so much for your and likes and hope and encouraging words these past 4 1/2 years. You helped me survive some of the loneliest days and hardest nights I've endured yet by keeping our connections alive across 2000 miles.

My 55th birthday is June 13, 2019, and I plan to celebrate it in PHX (details to be announced). I'm leaving Michigan (god willing) by May 25 - and should land in an undisclosed location in the Deep Southwest soon after.

Here's my PAYPAL link for anyone who wants to shoot me $10 bucks or throw a big impromptu anarchist talent show and pass a hat or something to help me make it home. Once I land I'll be back to work on my art again, and will send a homemade gift to everyone I can...


And don't forget to pick up PJ Starr's 2016 documentary film about the life ad death of Marcia Joanne Powell:



so please share with all our friends!!

THANK YOU and MUCH to all, near and far.

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.

Critical Resistance: Abolitionist Celebration

Critical Resistance, Oakland

*Featuring Angela Y Davis, Sparhla Swa, Destiny Arts, Climbing PoeTree, and more*

Please join us November 19th to celebrate what we have won and built over the last 11 years, and help make sure we can accomplish even more in the years to come!

For over ten years, CR has been putting abolitionist politics at the center of visions for collective liberation, insisting we interrogate the ways incarceration is used as a solution to vast, structural inequalities. Locally and globally, we can see the impact of our work, and also new challenges before us.

On November 19th, we're bringing together lovingly prepared food, inspiring performances, beautiful art, and conversations to keep our shared work moving!

The Details:
November 19th @ 6:30
First Unitarian Church of Oakland—685 14th St.

Tickets are sliding scale $40-80.

Critical Resistance is dedicated to making sure everyone is a part of the movement to abolish the prison industrial complex. We are trying to raise $2,000 for our Community Ticket Fund to make sure we can provide low- and no-cost tickets to this event. If you can make a donation to the Community Ticket Fund or want a Community Ticket, please let us know. This is a great way for people who are not able to attend to be able to support!
