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.

Distress: Remembering Marcia Powell.

"Distress", made by Marritte Funches, 2010. In remembrance of Marcia Powell, who died a year ago when Arizona prison guards left her unattended all day in a cage in the desert sun.

He also reminds us of some of the living: political prisoners currently imprisoned or in exile. Please give special thought, as well, to Marilyn Buck, now fighting cancer at the BOP's Federal Medical Center (FMC) Carswell, in Texas.
