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.

Honor Russ Pearce.

Hey, if you all hit the Police State to lodge your protest, you should have a chance to make a donation to a good cause. They even send a card to the person you're doing it to honor. Some Friends of Marcia Powell were hanging out when I wrote the Governor, so we honored Russ Pearce with our donation. Here's the card he'll get in his email (watch my back, now, please, folks...). 

Had we thought it out, though, our few measly bucks would have gone to SAVE THE MACEHUALLI - so that's where you should go after shooting an email to the Governor, and buy Russ some Virtual Tamales. I'm sure the center will be happy to send him a thank you card if you do it in his honor...lets see how many tamales we can buy him...

This eCard will be sent to rpearce@azleg.gov



  Dear Russell Pearce,

An online donation has been made on your behalf via Network for Good, by the Friends of Marcia Powell, to the National Day Labor Organizing Network, in tribute to your most fascist legislation, SB 1070.

Freedom Summer, Arizona, 2010. Thank you!
