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.

This is one of the better blogs I have come across in a while. What happened to Marcia Powell was despicable, horrendous, and inexcusable. Her jailers saw her was expendable. The fact that the people responsible for her death suffered no consequence leads me to believe that the prison authorities saw her as expendable.

I wrote about Marcia in my blog where I used to normally write about immigration from a xicano (not a Mexican-American-I hate fucking hyphens)viewpoint. The details of her death moved me. No one should have to die like that-to be put in the hot desert sun and forgotten about.

Every human is worthy of dignity for the simple fact that we are human.
