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.

Distress: Remembering Marcia Powell.

"Distress", made by Marritte Funches, 2010. In remembrance of Marcia Powell, who died a year ago, killed by being left in a cage at 107 degrees in the sun.

He also reminds us of the living: political prisoners currently imprisoned or in exile. Please give special thought, as well, to Marilyn Buck, now fighting cancer at the BOP's Federal Medical Center (FMC) Carswell, in Texas.
