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...

NO HUMAN INVOLVED

SHARING IS CARING,

so please share with all our friends!!

THANK YOU and MUCH to all, near and far.

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.

Deaths in Custody: Rosario Rodriguez-Bojorquez, 29

UPDATE: I  received a letter a couple of weeks after this suicide from a guy in the same cell block as Rosario, who saw his body get carted out when he died. He said Rosario had just been told that his application for protective custody was denied before he hung himself. The ADC doesn't routinely debrief traumatized prisoners after someone is murdered or kills themselves inside, so it's no surprise that another prisoner at ASPC-FLorence who was seeking protection - Duron Cunningham - hung himself a week later.

If Rosario's family is out there and needing any support or assistance at all, please contact me. I'm no mental health professional or lawyer, but I will do whatever I can to help the survivors of prison violence, neglect and suicide. My name is Peggy Plews, my number is 480-580-6807, and my email address is prisonabolitionist@gmail.com.
