The Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal met on December 2nd, to hear reports about news in the struggle to free Mumia, as critical oral arguments will be presented in a hearing in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals early in 2007. At the meeting, plans for next February's visit that Lynne Stewart and Center for Constitutional Rights President Michael Ratner will make to the Bay Area were discussed. At events in Berkeley, San Francisco, San Jose, and Palo Alto, they will raise funds and consciousness for Mumia's and Lynne's legal and political defenses.
