SUPPORT your local Prison Abolitionist!

To all my AZ friends/family: Thanks so much for your and likes and hope and encouraging words these past 4 1/2 years. You helped me survive some of the loneliest days and hardest nights I've endured yet by keeping our connections alive across 2000 miles.

My 55th birthday is June 13, 2019, and I plan to celebrate it in PHX (details to be announced). I'm leaving Michigan (god willing) by May 25 - and should land in an undisclosed location in the Deep Southwest soon after.

Here's my PAYPAL link for anyone who wants to shoot me $10 bucks or throw a big impromptu anarchist talent show and pass a hat or something to help me make it home. Once I land I'll be back to work on my art again, and will send a homemade gift to everyone I can...


And don't forget to pick up PJ Starr's 2016 documentary film about the life ad death of Marcia Joanne Powell:



so please share with all our friends!!

THANK YOU and MUCH to all, near and far.

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.

Making Tempe safe and free...

From my friends in the Resistance - every community needs to be doing this. It's stuff like this that builds community, sometimes, forcing us to stretch together in ways we never dreamed of...all to bring about a world that some say isn't possible.

I know that another world is possible...and already in the making:

Come down to Tempe this Thursday and show support for Tempe residents organizing against SB 1070 (the "show me your papers" law)! There will be a rally outside of the Tempe city hall during the city council meeting, this is a protest and opportunity for residents and supporters to speak out against enforcement of this unjust and racist law.

This event is family friendly, so invite your friends, family, and neighbors who also oppose SB 1070. Let's show the city council that Tempe residents, along with supporters from across the valley, want a safe and free Tempe for everyone!

This one is in the evening, but make sure to bring plenty of water as well.
