This site is to monitor conditions in Arizona's criminal justice system, as well as offer some critical analysis of the prison industrial complex from a prison abolitionist/anarchist's perspective. If you're unfamiliar with prison abolition, check out Critical Resistance. I'm just a freelance writer and human rights activist, and have no legal training.

Idle No More Phoenix: Action, Solidarity, and Resurgence.

Over the course of the past week I've had the privilege to bear witness to several events in the Phoenix area with Indigenous activists involved in the Idle No More movement out of Canada, now sweeping the planet.

Join Idle No More - Phoenix at Steele Indian School Park (parking lot C) on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 5:30pm to support a Global Day of Action, Solidarity and Resurgence

"Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth."
