Emergency Demonstration for Mumia Abu-Jamal
Thu Oct 4 2007 (Updated 10/06/07)
Organizers Say, "All Out for Mumia Abu-Jamal!"
On May 17th, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia was packed as oral arguments were heard in the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. A decision is expected sometime very soon. If the Court rules to uphold the death sentence or denies Mumia’s appeals for a new trial or new hearing, the Partisan Defense Committee and Labor Black League for Social Defense say that protests should take place the day after a decision or on Monday if the decision falls on Friday or Saturday. A demonstration in Oakland would take place at 14th and Broadway from 4:30-6:30 pm. In San Francisco, the Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal has called for a demonstration on the "day after" at 5 pm at the Federal Court House, 7th and Mission Street (NOT the Federal Building). Read more.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is a former Black Panther Party spokesman, supporter of the MOVE organization and award-winning journalist known as the “voice of the voiceless.” Mumia and his supporters all over the world allege that he was framed up in 1982 on false charges of killing a Philadelphia police officer. Since he was sentenced to death based on his political history and beliefs, Mumia has spent 25 years on death row for a crime which many people believe he did not commit.

Mumia's commentaries are available from Prison Radio, broadcast on over 90 radio stations carrying Free Speech Radio News, and published on Indymedia websites, including Philadelphia IMC (mumia page) and Indybay's Police State page.
