SUPPORT your local Prison Abolitionist!

To all my AZ friends/family: Thanks so much for your and likes and hope and encouraging words these past 4 1/2 years. You helped me survive some of the loneliest days and hardest nights I've endured yet by keeping our connections alive across 2000 miles.

My 55th birthday is June 13, 2019, and I plan to celebrate it in PHX (details to be announced). I'm leaving Michigan (god willing) by May 25 - and should land in an undisclosed location in the Deep Southwest soon after.

Here's my PAYPAL link for anyone who wants to shoot me $10 bucks or throw a big impromptu anarchist talent show and pass a hat or something to help me make it home. Once I land I'll be back to work on my art again, and will send a homemade gift to everyone I can...


And don't forget to pick up PJ Starr's 2016 documentary film about the life ad death of Marcia Joanne Powell:



so please share with all our friends!!

THANK YOU and MUCH to all, near and far.

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.

The American Spring is spreading...

Here are the current links for Arizona Occupations, compiled by the Daily Kos. Check out their map for what's happening where across the country. As journalist Brenda Norrell observed on Spacebook tonight, "they've even occupied Boise"!

Make sure you're logged into Facebook to access these pages. According to the Occupy Together Meetup site, Prescott is struggling to organize, too - at least four people there are. I guess lot of people in Prescott are doing just fine in this recession, apparently - or they've been in Arizona so long they've lost the will to resist. It's the dry hate, not the heat, that really wears us down here, though: the only difference between our legislature and the KKK is Arizona's lack of sheets, hoods and shame. Anything off-white (including dirty whites like me) is still a legitimate state target, under most of our laws. It's time to end all that.

Isn't it funny how they only call this "class war" when we fight back?
