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.

Visit me now at Arizona Prison Watch or Survivors of Prison Violence-AZ

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.

 Is it any wonder his constituency is a bunch of tea partiers? Those people will be remembered by history as the quintessential selfish, spoiled Americans. We cannot let them define this state or our generation. All they seem to care about is what's "theirs" - and making sure that if we mess with it (the balance of power, that is), then we get ours. 

Anyway, just thought folks would want to know this was happening, in case you're a big fan of his, he's begging for money (Shh!!! I'm still on their supporter email list. Has everyone else signed up, yet, too?).

I will be speaking tonight at the The Mesa Red Mountain Tea Group tonight.

Thursday, Dec. 17, 7 pm – 8:30 pm,
at the Red Mountain Multigenerational Center,
west room #3, 7550 E. Adobe
in southeast Mesa, 85207.

I hope to see you there.
