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.

The Black Women's Defense League one of the official ACTION cadre's of the International Million Woman Movement will be presenting the case of the Scott Sisters  to the participants of the 2010 Black Nation Day gathering that will take place in Jackson Mississippi at the end of March (which will also be end of Women's History Month).

Along with a "Teach In" on the case of the Scott Sisters and other cases of injustices infringed upon Black women (women of African descent) in the US, a People's Rally in front of the Capitol State Building is being planned to be held on Fri. March 26, 2010 to demand the release of Jamie and Gladys Scott and a federal investigation into racist, prejudicial, and/or judiciary misconduct.

This, a pre-requisite assembly that will lead up to a more extensive campaign and mass Rally that will take place later in the Fall will serve as the first phase in the  People's Demand and Complaint  that is being logged and against the Government of Mississippi  (Jackson & Pearl Judiciaries and Law Enforcement).  Additionally, the Rally and Teach-In will  provide an abundance of  information, facilitate the workings for much needed awareness,create and spark motivation for "action", while demonstrating and building Unity amongst the masses (the community at large).

The March 26, 2010  "FREE THE SCOTT SISTERS" Protest Demonstration and Rally will also help to further the building of the "FREE THE SCOTT SISTERS" DIRECT ACTION TASK FORCE that is being coordinated by the BWDL  To get involved with the FTSS-Task Force or for more information call 267-636-3802  or e-mail:nationalmwm@aol.com  or BWDL7@aol.com
