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.

May Day with Goddard

and Young Dems, trying to snare more youth in their traps...(they can't even bring themselves to call it May Day or celebrate workers themselves, so I'll be elsewhere that night...)

Shame on them for spending precious resources at the Biltmore on this. Guess the ASU Memorial Union or some community center where real people can go isn't good enough.

If these campaigns are just about money, then how are we ever going to get heard and represented?

No wonder the poor are the one who end up in prison.


------------------

The next Governor of Arizona, Terry Goddard is now scheduled to join us at Heritage After Dark. Don't miss this chance to hang out with our Attorney General, the man who will get Arizona working again!
