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.

Protest the PHX PD: Justice for Danny Rodriguez.

Hey peeps: Lets turn out to show our support tonight: Phoenix PD, 7th AVe/W. Washington 6pm. Re-enactment begins at 7pm. This isn't just a Latino issue - show the PPD that the rest of Phoenix rejects police brutality, too, against people of all colors and hues.

Also, remember to mark Friday, October 22 on your calendar as Police Brutality Day. There will be actions in several locations, soon to be announced. Anyone planning one, please email me so we can support each other, instead of compete for support. prisonabolitionist@gmail.com.

From Carlos Galindo:

We will be reenacting the murder of the young unarmed Latino killed by a rogue Phoenix cop. Dramatization will occur at 7:00 PM. Please attend!!! We need your support!!!

We have suffered enough abuse under law enforcement's regime here in Arizona. The Phoenix Police Department has been responsible for much of the abuse and cover up and spin of incidents that have occurred in the primarily Latino neighborhoods.

On Tuesday October 5..., 2010 a rogue Phoenix Police Officer killed an unarmed member of the Latino community and another Phoenix Police Officer witnessed it and reported his abuse actions and what some are calling outright murder. The same Rogue cop Richard Chrisman killed the family puppy (a Boxer) that was just a few months old. The police officer who was a witness indicates that the puppy was not posing a threat. More importantly the police officer say's that his "partner" acted inappropriately and that the 29 year old Latino was not armed!!!

We cannot no longer standby as law enforcement abuses our community members and our Immigrant community.

Join us in insisting that the charges of aggravated assault be readdressed and that murder charges be filed against this rogue police officer.

We can no longer stand by and watch these abuses occur.

PLEASE JOIN US TODAY AT 6:00 PM AT THE PHOENIX POLICE HEADQUARTERS 620 W. WASHINGTON, STREET, PHOENIX, ARIZONA (GROUND ZERO FOR ABUSE AGAINST THE LATINO COMMUNITY)

IF you are out of state please post a comment in solidarity of this protest!!!

Please don't be apathetic!!! Come and join us, regardless of your skin color or ethnicity. We are all in this fight together!!!


In solidarity..............


Respectfully,


Carlos E. Galindo
