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.

Mexica Movement in Phoenix: AUG 7.

----------------------------From the Mexica Movement-------------------------

The Mexica Movement is presenting in Phoenix to educate our people through a lecture on history, identity, and the fight against racism in Arizona.

Saturday, August 7, 2010
1:00pm - 4:00pm
Lost Leaf
914 North 5th Street
Phoenix, AZ

There will be two lectures, one on Saturday at noon and one on Sunday at 2pm.

Speakers will include Olin Tezcatlipoca, Citlalli Citlalmina Anahuac, Carlos Cordova, and Cuauhtlatohuac Chimalli Huitzilopochtli.

Also, we will be having a booth at the First Friday event in downtown Phoenix around 7th street and Roosevelt on August 6 from around 6-11. Participate to help us further liberation!

Come to participate in the education and liberation of our people!


Make sure you check out their website before going , especially if you are of European descent and think this is irrelevant to you (here's the greeting to "good white people" like John Brown). Whether or not their ultimate goal is one we all share, like a vision which liberates ALL people, regardless of ancestry, geography, wealth, race, gender, etc - their critique on European and US colonialism is compelling. - Peg
