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.

Women Behind the Wall: Jamie Scott

I just found this posting, but you can still hear the show at blogtalk radio, below. Women Behind the Wall is hosted by Gloria Killian and Mary Ellen Digacomo, two women who were exonerated after years in prison, and now try to help other women who were wrongfully convicted or are being unjustly treated. They did an episode about Marcia's death, which is linked to in the margins or below. This one is for Jamie and her family, and comes via Mississippi Prison Watch.

A special edition of WOMEN BEHIND THE WALL, devoted to the desperate medical situation of Jamie Scott and efforts to obtain a compassionate release for Jamie before she dies of medical neglect in a woman's prison. Tuesday 2/9/10 at 6:00 PM EST on, call in number 646-378-1432
