The 'Friends of Marcia Powell' are autonomous groups and individuals engaging in prisoner outreach, informal advocacy, and organized protest and direct actions in a sustained campaign to: promote prisoner rights and welfare in America; engage the Arizona public in a creative and thoughtful critique of our system of "justice;” deconstruct the prison industrial complex; and dismantle this racist, classist patriarchy...

Retiring "Free Marcia Powell"

As of December 2, 2010 (with occasional exceptions) I'm retiring this blog to direct more of my time and energy into prisoner rights and my other blogs; I just can't do anyone justice when spread so thin. I'll keep the site open so folks can search the archives and use the links, but won't be updating it with new posts. If you're looking for the latest, try Arizona Prison Watch. Most of the pieces posted here were cross-posted to one or both of those sites already.

Thanks for visiting. Peace out - Peg.

Women Behind the Wall: Jamie Scott

I just found this posting, but you can still hear the show at blogtalk radio, below. Women Behind the Wall is hosted by two women who were exonerated after years in prison, and now try to help other women who were wrongfully convicted or are being unjustly treated. They did an episode about Marcia's death, which is linked to in the margins or below. This one is for Jamie and her family, via Mississippi Prison Watch.

A special edition of WOMEN BEHIND THE WALL, devoted to the desperate medical situation of Jamie Scott and efforts to obtain a compassionate release for Jamie before she dies of medical neglect in a woman's prison.
Tuesday 2/9/10 at 6:00 PM EST on, call in number 646-378-1432.
