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.

Under the Bridge: Resistance, anarchy, and song.

Hey folks - these music festivals under the bridge are among the best shows I've been to - good music, decent souls, and plenty of open sidewalk under the setting sun to chalk. Come and join the local anarchist community to close out day one of the next big wave of protests against fascism here.


On March 16, by the way, a bunch of folks plan to have George Bush arrested for war crimes. He will be at the Phoenix Convention Center to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Arizona Christian University. What a shame that people of any faith would turn to him for leadership after all the damage he's done to life on this planet.


The arrest and other protesting on the 16th appear to span from about 4-8pm. Heads up for the police snipers on the rooftops downtown.
