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.

Ironwood Infoshop opening in Tempe!



Come celebrate the beginning of the Ironwood Infoshop, a new community-based space focusing on providing resources for those anti-hierarchically minded (read: anarchist). During our opening there will be zines for your perusing pleasure, vegan snacks for your mouth's delight, and music to enchant your earholes! This is all free. If you wanna bring books, zines, art supplies, or anything to donate, we will gladly accept.

Here's some more info about the Ironwood Infoshop:

In addition to providing a lending library, we will hold discussions, workshops, craft nights, film screenings, and lots more. Ironwood is kid friendly, so bring your kids to hang out in our Kids Corner! We are currently open on Friday afternoons from 4-8 in the back space of The Fixx coffee shop. We are in the process of looking for a more permanent space, but until then we'll be here every Friday afternoon! We've got lots planned for the month of July, so come join us!

GETTING THERE and PARKING If you take the Light Rail, exit at the Mill/3rd Ave stop. Walk/wheel south on Mill, then take a left on 7th St. The Fixx will be the first building on your right. If you drive, park in the lot to the right of The Fixx, and make sure that you write down your car make/model at the coffee bar counter so you're not towed! We encourage carpooling too, so if you need a ride/want to carpool, post on the wall.
