Wed Jan 30 2008 (Updated 02/04/08)Fighters for Freedom Event in Support of Mumia Abu-Jamal
Wed Jan 30 2008 (Updated 02/04/08)February 3rd Event in SF to Honor Mumia Abu-Jamal and His Friends
On Sunday, February 3rd, the Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal presented "Fighters for Freedom," an event in support of Mumia, who is a political prisoner and death row journalist. The event took place on Sunday afternoon at the ILWU Local 34 Hall in San Francisco. Speakers and honorees included Dennis Bernstein, producer of KPFA's Flashpoints; Lynne Stewart, attorney who was convicted of conspiracy to aid and abet terrorism; Michael Franti, performing artist and a founder of Power to the Peaceful concert festivals; the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, which shut down the West Coast ports to free Mumia; Barbara Lubin, Director of the Middle East Children's Alliance; Jonathan Richmond, singer/songwriter; and Aundre Herron, attorney and comedienne from "Wonderwoman." The recent video about Mumia's case that was broadcast on NBC's Today Show was shown.
Mumia Abu-Jamal is an award-winning journalist who has been on Pennsylvania death row for some 26 years. His 1992 trial has been repudiated by Amnesty International, the European Parliament, the California Labor Federation, SF Labor Council, AFSCME, SEIU, ILWU, NUPW, Alice Walker, E.L. Doctorow, Nelson Mandela, Norman Mailer, Angela Davis, the past French President Jacques Chirac and the Detroit, SF, and Berkeley city governments. Mumia's case is rapidly approaching its legal conclusion. After presenting to the courts and to millions around the world the facts that prove his innocence, his appeal for a new trial, which would likely include far fewer injustices than the first one, is pending. A decision is imminent, and emergency demonstrations in response to the outcome have already been scheduled.
