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.

Protect AZ workers' right to organize.

The business community - with the help of media - has been spreading fear and lies about this proposal for the November ballot. Don't be fooled, Arizona - they screwed the migrants pretty well, now this is war on the rest of us. They're afraid of workers being free to organize, and are protecting themselves against us, not us against unions. Why would we think they have the working and middle class' best interests at heart, anyway? Look at what they did to the teachers for defying them this year. Show up or call in to oppose those behind it all tomorrow. Say no to changing the constitution and eroding worker rights.
