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.

Napolitano Sandwich. Thursday, MAR 25, ASU.

FREE THE POLITICAL PRISONERS!!

Celebrate the Abolition of the Transatlantic Slave trade. Let our People Go.

I have a few words for Director Napolitano about the condition she left things in here - as well as what she's been up to lately - but so does everyone else, so I may just watch the Left and the Right protest her together Thursday night.

I'll be wearing black and a bright bandanna if I'm there. That's my show of support for the indigenous and "anglomigrant" anarchists and anti-authoritarians rising up from the desert in resistance to racial profiling, police brutality, mass incarceration, for-profit detention, and all the other attendant evils of imperialism here in the Land of the Free...

Community to protest
cooperation between Janet Napolitano and Sheriff Joe Arpaio!


When: 6:30pm Thursday March 25th, 2010

Where: Arizona State University (Tempe Campus)

50 E Gammage Pk Tempe Az

What:

People from around the valley will gather to demonstrate and protest against Janet Napolitano and her continuing cooperation with the abuses of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Not only has the Obama administration failed to come through with the promised of immigration reform, but Napolitano and the Administration have Deported/Detained/Separated more families then the previous Bush Administration.

This Thursday, March 25th at ASU’s Tempe campus the community will take the opportunity to let Janet Napolitano and the Obama administration know that they disagree with their policies and the continuing cooperation with Arpaio’s civil and human rights violations in Maricopa County.

Janet Napolitano knows all about Sheriff Joe Arpaio and what he continues to do. She knows of the investigations and the congressional hearings, yet she continues to allow and aid Sheriff Joe Arpaio to constantly attack our communities.

STOP COOPERATION BETWEEN ICE AND MCSO NOW!
