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.

No Nazis, No Hate: Ballad of Anti-Nazi Street Fighterz .

Many of these people who greeted the Nazis and battled the cops in the streets of Phoenix this weekend are my friends and comrades - all deploying a diversity of tactics. I stumbled onto this ballad on Facebook tonight - it had been viewed only 22 times on Youtube when I grabbed it.

It's explicit, perhaps - but nowhere near as offensive as the Nazis were - and the PHX PD.
The lyrics are pasted below. I tried to discern who the singers are with no luck - whoever it is that put this together is awesome. You all fucking rock.

Check out the report and photos from the rally at the Phoenix Class War Council's blog. They really nailed the Phoenix Police.

Here are a few of my heroes...(the singers and street fighters alike). Check out the tug of war they won with the cops! They set someone free!!



Assorted pics and vid from Nov. 13, 2010 Anti-Nazi Resistance in Phoenix, AZ!
