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.

Some 1500 activists rallied in Lafayette Park and marched to the White House fence today, where 113 were arrested. Chanting “Stop the wars, expose the lies, free Bradley Manning!” the protesters marked the eighth anniversary of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. The action was sponsored by Veterans For Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, and March Forward!

Speakers at the rally included Daniel Ellsberg, Medea Benjamin, Ralph Nader, and Ret. Col. Ann Wright.

The activists plan to follow up March 20 with a rally at the Marine base at Quantico, where Private First Class Bradley Manning, accused of releasing classified government information to the WikiLeaks website, has been held in solitary confinement for nine months.
