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.

Hands across the border: Vigil remembering Carlos La Madrid

From Border Action Network:



Walk and Vigil in Memory of Carlos LaMadrid

Friday, April 1st, 2011

3 PM

Starting Point: McDonald's

Corner of 5th St and Pan American Ave.

Douglas, AZ

We will walk south on Pan American Ave, then east on International Ave to the point on the border wall where Carlos was shot (20-30 minute walk).

We will then have a vigil with our brothers and sisters on the other side in Agua Prieta, Sonora to unite both sides of a border divided by walls and by hate in the face of this tragedy.


Please bring flowers, candles, signs, or whatever you would like to leave on the “Wall of Shame” in memory of Carlos.
