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.

HumanLeague002: Voices of the People's History.

This is Dennis Gilman's footage of Sal Reza's wrongful arrest last week on YouTube (you really must subscribe to Humanleague002) - a story we were privy to earlier thanks to the Feathered Bastard. Between Dennis and Stephen Lemons, we're getting some good coverage of the People's History out here...

Here is Dennis' other most recent video showing one of the National Day of Non-Compliance actions at the 4th Avenue Jail. Catch that awesome chant! There are hundreds of people out there chasing those deputies back inside! They shut down most of Arpaio's racial profiling plans for the day, too!
