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.

Recall this fascist state!

The first step in removing the governor from office has been taken. We only need 432,021 signatures to force a recall election for Jan Brewer. Here's the info on the recall campaigns against Russ Pearce (and the actual application for recall petition from one of the groups).

I don't know quite what to make of it all yet, but the campaigns get underway Monday. I think it's just going to give them more political targets to take out later, when the dust settles again.
I'll definitely be signing the petition to recall the governor anyway. I'll try to link to that site with a widget, too, so stay tuned.
