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.

Shame on Pearce. How About Democracy?

This is a post originally from mid-November - I just moved it up after seeing how close we are to the event: a celebration of all that is white and just in America (remember who sits on his campaign committee, now...). How appropriate that it is on the eve of International Human Rights Day. - Peg

--------------------------from November 17, 12:01PM------------------------

Don't even know if I'll be in town, myself, but just got this Pearce Alert from his campaign and couldn't resist letting folks know about this event. You really must visit the website below - it's scary.

As I recall, it's basically about the secret software they use to help people email their lawmakers and get around the state programs that would divert mass mailings to spam. So, it gives one segment of the voting population access to their legislators while keeping the back door they use a secret from the rest of us (you have to pledge to uphold their values if you use their software to write your legislators, or else something bad might happen, I guess.). That doesn't seem very fair. Pearce is trumpeting something that any good representative of The People in a true democracy should be ashamed of exploiting.

"State Sovereignty", by the way, is code for White Supremacy - often used in the Jim Crow South that challenged federal civil rights mandates and such, among other things...

Many of you have heard me talk about a website called As you know Arizona has been leading the nation in conservative values and Life Liberty Freedom has been a big help to me in making Arizona a leader for other states to follow.

Right now we are fighting for our own State Sovereignty. The Federal Government is doing all it can to undermine our Sovereignty. It is with help from good folks like you that make all the difference and that is where Life Liberty Freedom comes in. They have a system that you can use for free to help make a difference. Click here to see the FREE service they provide or to join.

Right now the system is set up for the Arizona Legislature; however, other states have been asking Life Liberty Freedom to come to their state also so there citizens can help fight back against the Federal Government form undermining their State Sovereignty.
