Michael Franti and Friends, Lynne Stewart, and Others Observe Mumia's Birthday and Ongoing Imprisonment
On Sunday, April 24th, there was a 51st birthday celebration for U.S. political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. The event took place at 2 pm at Mission High School in San Francisco. Michael Franti performed, and speakers included New York human rights attorney and political prisoner Lynne Stewart, Robert R. Bryan, who is Mumia's lead attorney, Mel Mason, who is the president of the Monterey Peninsula Branch of the NAACP, and many more. imc_audio.gif Audio

According to the Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal ("the Mobe"), at its National Convention last summer, the NAACP, which is the nation's largest civil rights organization, voted to engage its chapters across the country in the fight for justice and a new trial for Mumia Abu-Jamal. Mumia's struggle for justice and a new trial is also supported by Amnesty International, the European Parliament, the city governments all over the world, the Episcopal Church of the U.S., many labor unions, and people in cities everywhere. Mumia's case has helped to turn the fight against the racist and classist death penalty into a national and international priority. The "legal" decisions that have been made during 22 years of litigation have, the Mobe says, "made a mockery of the criminal justice system." Read more about the event and Mumia's case
