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.

Similar to the War on Lemonade, there seems to be a war on Chalking - or freedom of speech as some still call it. Eight people were arrested in New Hampshire for chalking a police station. They face several charges including graffiti, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and more.

In Manchester, NH they've been chalking already, but on October 1st the nation can join in on the fun.

The concept: Chalk the Police

On October 1st, 2011 people are being encouraged to join New Hampshire based activists with this campaign. Hold an event at your local police department or park and bring the chalk. Folks who attend are encouraged to chalk questions for the police.

We're in need of ideas, videographers for videos, graphics people and doers in general. If you have an idea post it or contact me - copblock@gmail.com

DONT FORGET TO MAKE YOUR LOCAL EVENTS ON FB AND/OR INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO THIS EVENT.

We're just getting rolling with the details, so stay tuned - http://copblock.org/ - for more information.
