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.

Homeless in Phoenix: Know Your Rights (ACLU)

First Friday Artwalk March
March 4, 2011

(link to PDF booklet) 

 is a publication of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona.

The ACLU of Arizona is the state’s premier guardian of liberty, working daily in the courts, Arizona Legislature and communities statewide to defend and preserve individual rights and freedoms guaranteed to all by the Constitution and the laws of the United States and Arizona.

If you believe that your civil rights have been violated by a government agency (such as the police, the post office, or a public school), contact the ACLU of Arizona:

By Mail
ACLU-AZ Intake
P.O. Box 17148
Phoenix, AZ 85011

By Phone


The ACLU is not a general legal assistance organization. It only deals with cases where a person’s civil rights or civil liberties have been violated by the government. 

If you need help with a general legal problem, you should go to Community Legal Services (legal aid). Their phone number is 602-258-3434, or you can go to their office, located at 305 S. Second Avenue (near 2nd Ave and Jackson) in downtown Phoenix.
