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.

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.

Thank you from Jamie Scott's Mom.

I know some of you out there hit the links in the posts below to email folks in Mississippi - thank you. It mattered. Jamie is in the hospital now. 

Please keep following the Scott Sisters' case and do what you can. They need to go home.

1/22 JAMIE SCOTT MOVED TO HOSPITAL!


BREAKING NEWS!!! 


JUST CONFIRMED THAT JAMIE SCOTT IS IN CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI MEDICAL CENTER, JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI!! 

Gladys Scott called their mother, Mrs. Rasco, and told her that Jamie was moved earlier today and had surgery to place a shunt where she will begin to receive dialysis. According to one of the guards she is doing OK at this point in time. We will definitely keep everyone updated every time we are aware of a new development. 

The outpouring of love that was showered on Jamie and Mrs. Rasco from around the world was truly incredible, fantastic and wonderful; thank you doesn't begin to express the gratitude that this family feels for what you've accomplished

Mrs. Rasco wants everyone who called, faxed or e-mailed to know that it was due to your ceaseless efforts that this happened, and she is very, very grateful to each and everyone of you that participated in this call to action! Together we can bring them home to their families where they belong!!
