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.

From Conspire to Perryville, with love.

I also did a few actions earlier in the evening, chalking up the sidewalks outside of the Goddard Brewer debate, bringing my signs by the Capitol and ADC for some postcard photos, and stopping by Conspire to get some friends to help me show some solidarity with the women at Perryville / Santa Cruz who are on lock-down and have been resisting the conditions there...




Note that this cop doesn't hassle me -

he just looks curious. (Central)










(First St./KAET)







I knew the ADC central Office would want to show the women their support, so I included them in my evening shoot. The light was awesome.












While I was there, I also pulled my Hep C

sign out - looks pretty sharp, eh?
Great postcard that'll make.




















Didn't want to leave the Governor's office out, either.






And finally, the women of Conspire,
in solidarity with our sisters in Perryville Prison.
Resist!
