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.

Lemons: "First Amendment Joe" Arpaio

Don't worry, America - half of the people in the recent Rasmussen poll who said they'd elect Arpaio governor were joking...

I hope.

Lifted this pic from Stephen Lemons' blog at the Phoenix New Times, where you can find out more about Arizona's own Bull Connor and his love for real reporters. ASU Students Against Joe Arpaio will be protesting him when he comes to the First Amendment Forum at the Cronkite School of Journalism next Monday, November 30.
