SUPPORT your local Prison Abolitionist!

To all my AZ friends/family: Thanks so much for your and likes and hope and encouraging words these past 4 1/2 years. You helped me survive some of the loneliest days and hardest nights I've endured yet by keeping our connections alive across 2000 miles.

My 55th birthday is June 13, 2019, and I plan to celebrate it in PHX (details to be announced). I'm leaving Michigan (god willing) by May 25 - and should land in an undisclosed location in the Deep Southwest soon after.

Here's my PAYPAL link for anyone who wants to shoot me $10 bucks or throw a big impromptu anarchist talent show and pass a hat or something to help me make it home. Once I land I'll be back to work on my art again, and will send a homemade gift to everyone I can...

And don't forget to pick up PJ Starr's 2016 documentary film about the life ad death of Marcia Joanne Powell:

NO HUMAN INVOLVED

SHARING IS CARING,

so please share with all our friends!!

THANK YOU and MUCH to all, near and far.

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.

Imprisoned Women's Rights Watch

I stole this post to introduce the new International Prison Watch site, Imprisoned Women's Rights Watch, which my comrades with the Prison Reform Community Center set up to debut on International Women's Day. As you can see, they include friends in Amsterdam, doing a solidarity action for which I did nothing but bury my head that day. Anyway, they're awesome, and we could use some help building this site - contact them if you'd like to become a contributor / imprisoned women's rights watcher.

International Women´s Day 2010...

Today March 8th 2010 is International Women´s Day. A good day to start this new blog for and with all women who are in prisons everywhere in the world.

This blog is connected to the International Prison Watch Weblogs, which is a growing network of sites where information about prisons, prisoner rights, abuse of prisoners and more is gathered and documented, with the goal to expose human rights abuses and from there to push for reform.

Here a few photos of Amsterdammers showing solidarity with imprisoned women:

At the little square dedicated to thoughts for Peace we showed our solidarity...



And here at the Monument in remembrance of Slavery, Oosterpark, Amsterdam, we showed our solidarity with women who are imprisoned.
