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.

Making Tempe safe and free...

From my friends in the Resistance - every community needs to be doing this. It's stuff like this that builds community, sometimes, forcing us to stretch together in ways we never dreamed of...all to bring about a world that some say isn't possible.

I know that another world is possible...and already in the making:

Come down to Tempe this Thursday and show support for Tempe residents organizing against SB 1070 (the "show me your papers" law)! There will be a rally outside of the Tempe city hall during the city council meeting, this is a protest and opportunity for residents and supporters to speak out against enforcement of this unjust and racist law.

This event is family friendly, so invite your friends, family, and neighbors who also oppose SB 1070. Let's show the city council that Tempe residents, along with supporters from across the valley, want a safe and free Tempe for everyone!

This one is in the evening, but make sure to bring plenty of water as well.
