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.

Toersbijns: STG's and the Supermax death trap.

Carl Toersbijns was a Deputy Warden at Arizona's Supermax facility, ASPC-Eyman, until he retired last year from the Arizona Department of Corrections; he knows of what he speaks. He knows he takes considerable risk doing so, as well; he's one of the good guys. I steal his blogs onbce in awhile like this, without even asking - hit his yahoo site for more insider info on the AZ state prisons.
