THIS BLOG is NOW RETIRED

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.

David Rovics: We Are Everywhere

To my fellow activists now struggling through life - let this be a reminder that you are not alone and that we desperately need you here. All the injustice, grief, war, and human suffering calls for us to stay and do everything we can about it - you can't help us anymore when you're gone. Don't give up the fight - your last shred of hope may just keep someone else alive, too.

Veterans and the Friends of Marcia Powell

There's a lengthy post about the Veterans Day action - and related things - on the Free Marcia Powell site that folks following that campaign might be interested in. It's just a long, fairly intimate entry that I wasn't sure about bringing over here - maybe later. For now, though, you'll need to scoot over there to read it. We'll still be here when you get back...

I don't think I'll be at the Goddard campaign event in Maricopa this weekend  check out the end of the post linked to above for more on that. 


(By the way, Director Ryan, this isn't what I told you thought I would be writing last night - that's still in the draft bin, about 3/4 finished, and may not be resurrected for completion. Some pieces ended up grafted on the post this links to. Anyway, this what I ended up with.)
