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.

The revolution is being televised: Wisconsin police resistance.

This is from last week, the night the cops joined the labor union members protesting in the Wisconsin state house in a show of solidarity. They were serving their own interests, maybe, but how much of what's going down with the unions in Wisconsin is really about bringing EVERYONE up a notch for the greater good, anyway? I wonder who'll end up getting thrown under the bus after all this...probably ex-felons and prisoners.

Nevertheless, it's a great moment for the history books.
