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.

Pearce Alert: Partying with Tea.

December 17, 2009. International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers.

December 18, 2009. Rally at Arizona Department of Corrections, 
1601 W. Jefferson St. Phoenix. 
High Noon.

 Is it any wonder his constituency is a bunch of tea partiers? Those people will be remembered by history as the quintessential selfish, spoiled Americans. We cannot let them define this state or our generation. All they seem to care about is what's "theirs" - and making sure that if we mess with it (the balance of power, that is), then we get ours. 

Anyway, just thought folks would want to know this was happening, in case you're a big fan of his, he's begging for money (Shh!!! I'm still on their supporter email list. Has everyone else signed up, yet, too?).

I will be speaking tonight at the The Mesa Red Mountain Tea Group tonight.

Thursday, Dec. 17, 7 pm – 8:30 pm,
at the Red Mountain Multigenerational Center,
west room #3, 7550 E. Adobe
in southeast Mesa, 85207.

I hope to see you there.
