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.

Arizona Attorney General candidate debates this week.

The KAET Channel 8 schedule says that tonight are the Republicans, and tomorrow are the Democrats, but everyone else says the following, so I'm going with the AP version. Presumably, this is being held at the KAET studio tomorrow at 7pm, though none of the press releases say so. Remember to catch the Democratic candidates Wednesday, too.

The two Republican candidates for Arizona attorney general will face off Tuesday in a debate held by the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne and former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas are vying for the Republican nomination in the Aug. 24 primary election.

The Clean Elections Commission will hold a debate Wednesday with the Democrats running for attorney general.

Democrats David Lujan, Vince Rabago and Felicia Rotellini are running for their party’s nomination.
