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.

Honor Russ Pearce and SB 1070.

Honor Russ Pearce.

Hey, if you all hit the Police State to lodge your protest, you should have a chance to make a donation to a good cause. They even send a card to the person you're doing it to honor. Some Friends of Marcia Powell were hanging out when I wrote the Governor, so we honored Russ Pearce with our donation. Here's the card he'll get in his email (watch my back, now, please, folks...). 

Had we thought it out, though, our few measly bucks would have gone to SAVE THE MACEHUALLI - so that's where you should go after shooting an email to the Governor, and buy Russ some Virtual Tamales. I'm sure the center will be happy to send him a thank you card if you do it in his honor...lets see how many tamales we can buy him...


This eCard will be sent to

  Dear Russell Pearce,

An online donation has been made on your behalf via Network for Good, by the Friends of Marcia Powell, to the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, in tribute to your most fascist legislation, SB 1070.

Freedom Summer, Arizona, 2010. Thank you!
