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.

1985: Remembering MOVE and the City of Brotherly Love.

For those of you who missed it, or who want a refresher on the immense violence unleashed on a community by the State - which then prosecuted the family it victimized - here's a comprehensive news recap of Philadelphia's bombing of the MOVE home 25 years ago...the police killed almost everyone inside, and set the entire neighborhood ablaze.

Here's the link for MOVE themselves. 11 members were murdered by the state in the May 13, 1985 bombing, and a handful remain in prison from an earlier police attack on their home. Read up, and take action. It's long past time to set these people free and hold the real perpetrators accountable...
