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.

Napolitano Sandwich. Thursday, MAR 25, ASU.


Celebrate the Abolition of the Transatlantic Slave trade. Let our People Go.

I have a few words for Director Napolitano about the condition she left things in here - as well as what she's been up to lately - but so does everyone else, so I may just watch the Left and the Right protest her together Thursday night.

I'll be wearing black and a bright bandanna if I'm there. That's my show of support for the indigenous and "anglomigrant" anarchists and anti-authoritarians rising up from the desert in resistance to racial profiling, police brutality, mass incarceration, for-profit detention, and all the other attendant evils of imperialism here in the Land of the Free...


Community to protest cooperation between Janet Napolitano and Sheriff Joe Arpaio!

6:30pm Thursday March 25th, 2010

Arizona State University (Tempe Campus), Gammage Auditorium.

50 E Gammage Pk Tempe Az. Take over the streets!

People from around the valley will gather to demonstrate and protest against Janet Napolitano

and her continuing cooperation with the abuses of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Not only has the Obama administration failed to come through

with the promised of immigration reform, but

Napolitano and the Administration have Deported/Detained/Separated more families

than the previous Bush Administration.

This Thursday, March 25th at ASU’s Tempe campus the community will take the opportunity to let Janet Napolitano and the Obama administration know that they disagree with their policies and the continuing cooperation with Arpaio’s civil and human rights violations in Maricopa County.

Janet Napolitano knows all about Sheriff Joe Arpaio and what he continues to do. She knows of the investigations and the congressional hearings, yet she continues to allow and aid Sheriff Joe Arpaio to constantly attack our communities.
