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.

Voices of Resistance: SB 1070 Speak Out!

Speak Out!

Start Time:
Monday, July 12, 2010 at 9:00pm
End Time:
Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at 1:00am
1015 N 1st St.
Phoenix, AZ

Speak Your Mind, Your Heart, Your Soul.

There will be an open mic available for anyone to share their thoughts, perspectives, hopes and fears. In the form of short poems, stories or songs. This is a safe place for everyone to use their creative expression in whatever form they find easiest to convey the impact 1070 has on all of us who live in the community.

This event is for you. Treat it as if it is your own by bringing thoughts and ideas to share with others, as well as an open ear.

Djentrification will be there with the soundtrack.
Andrew Ecker will be there with drums.

Bring drums if you have them, dance to the beat if you like it, create your own if you don't......
