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.

  1. Dearest Peggy! As always, very informative info on your site. Thank you, it truly informs those that do not understand on a practical measure/have the time/or do not truly understand some of the government jargon. I want to say that it is truly MUCH EASIER to actually physically speak to Governer canidate(s) closer to elections when you truly have a true issue with the DOC and/or the Juvie DOC system. I might suggest to anyone with legal concerns/questions to contact the governer they want to win the elections and discuss your concerns right now because those who want to be elected truly listen now more than ever. Thank you!~ Victoria Seeger
