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.

Jamie Scott, Governor Barbour, Compassion and Grace.

Here is the latest from the Scott Sisters campaign. So Jamie's life now also rests in the hands of this man. I hope he has met her family. I hope he is a man who has some compassion and grace. 

If you snail mail anything to the Governor's office about clemency/commutation, remember to let the little ones participate. They come up with the best stuff, sometimes. They really make it simple.


From Sis Marpessa

Jamie Scott's situation remains unchanged. Our legal experts are working on a variety of different angles to make things happen for her.  Atty Jaribu Hill wants to thank all of the supporters and asks that anyone contact her with information that may help the case at The atty. advises that we continue to focus on the governor's office with calls, faxes and e-mails as this will complement the work that is happening.

In 2009 this governor pardoned a man that killed his wife after the woman was continually complaining about him to the police and so there is no reason that he not release Jamie and Gladys Scott who are guilty of no crime and not even charged with any violence!

Mrs. Rasco did an excellent interview on WJZD Mississippi radio yesterday to call out for help from those listeners.  Please help us to push for more national media coverage to get this case the attention it needs!

There is a major problem with some callers cursing and yelling when calling the prison.(Even I know that's not good.) Please control yourself when speaking to these people as these outbursts are not helping but instead are actually harming our efforts.  Thanks for keeping it together and being polite.

Please use the below in your mailings and postings where a general overview is needed.  Thanks so much to all of you who have answered the call to fight for Jamie's life and freedom for the Scott Sisters!

JAMIE SCOTT, #19197.
