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.

Don't miss out.

We present forums for the Hispanic community on the importance of creating support groups and having a preparation plan for difficult situations we face like "the separation of families" we often see here in Maricopa County. We are raising funds for materials especially a projector.

Here is more information about the group...

One of the group's main objectives is to achieve political and social strengthening of the Hispanic community through information sharing and organized efforts. To achieve this requires creating an awareness in every member of our community about the need to participate in the tasks of organizing. Because only through a fraternal unity and our organized efforts can we achieve the objectives that we propose. We invite you to join the struggle and resistance.
