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.

Protest at ADC: Sex Workers Outreach Project


December 15: Fifth Special Legislative Session Begins


Click on the December 18 SWOP event link above and it'll take you to the site with all the current info on the protest rally at the AZ Department of Corrections. There is also a letter posted at the site written to Director Ryan at the ADC, in which the women of SWOP expressed their specific concerns about the abuse of sex workers, and laid out their expectations for improvements at the ADC. I'll put it all up as soon as I get a few more minutes here. This will have to suffice for now. The link for December 17th's event will take you to SWOP-Tucson. What they have planned that evening will be worth the drive.

Arizona Department of Corrections
1601 West Jefferson (Corner of West Jefferson and 16th Avenue)
More photos to orient travelers will be posted in the AM.

***If you are coming, please bring red umbrellas (and/or wear red or black) to show solidarity***
