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.

Denounce Russ Pearce's BS.

Heads up from Matt at the Immigrant Rights Listserve. I think I'm going to try to make it to these - definitely to Wednesday's. I like Matt's attitude:
"2 anti-migrant bills will be heard in committees this week. On Wed @ 9AM in Rm. SHR3 Russell Pearce's bill (SB1070) to bar "sanctuary city" policies and also to turn every govn't employee into ICE (I just copied and pasted this from the link) & Thurs @ 9am is a bill (HB2042) targeting day laborers - Rm. HHR4.

Who wants to go to these with me to denounce this crap?"
