The Fight to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal: A Fight Against Racist U.S. Capitalism
Mumia Abu-Jamal, former Black Panther, MOVE supporter and journalist, is an innocent political prisoner, framed for his exposure of racist police brutality. For 35 years, Mumia has challenged his racially biased and politically motivated conviction. Winning Mumia’s freedom would be a victory not only for him, but an inspiration and support to all those battling the injustices of U.S. imperialism. This struggle requires a mass movement with international labor support. Join Us! Free Mumia!
The Labor Action Committee To Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Invites you to attend a public forum on the latest legal developments in Mumia's Case. Having finally been properly treated for Hepatitis-C, Mumia is now attempting to show that his case was compromised by former Philadelphia District Attorney Ronald Castille, now judge of the PA Supreme Court. Throughout Mumia's appeals, Judge Castille refused to stepdown or recuse himself, despite his role in prosecuting Mumia. Mumia has obtained documents through discovery that should demonstrate Judge Castille's role in framing him. If proven, this could overturn Mumia's negative appeals rulings, and open the case to new examination. But will the court allow this evidence to be brought forth? This is now in question! Rachel Wolkenstein, Mumia's long time attorney will be speaking.
