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.

Mississippi & Illinois Prison Watches Born.

Necessity has given birth to a new Illinois Prison Watch and Mississippi Prison Watch, thanks to our comrades at the Prison Reform Community Center. Anyone interested in administering and authoring for either site - or a prison watch in any other state - please join PRCC through their links and contact Rebecca or Annabelle about how you can help. There is all sorts of room for creative license. In the meantime, we'll just keep building them and adding new articles as they arise.
