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.

Another Death in Custody: Suicide at Lewis Prison

Some say that suicide is 100% preventable; this didn't have to happen. Will the family or friends of this young man please contact me about all these suicides in the state prisons of late? The rate has doubled since Jan Brewer took office.

My name is Peggy; my number is 480-580-6807, or email me at

Our condolences to all of this prisoner's loved ones.
