Colin Kaepernick Supports Mumia!

21 November 2020

Colin Kaepernick is a professional football quarter-back with a sterling record, but he is now an unemployed free agent. This could not be a more important indication of systemic racism in the US, nor a greater condemnation of the corporate worms that own football in this country.

In the 49ers’ third preseason game in 2016 Kaepernick sat during the playing of the US  National anthem prior to the game, as a protest against police brutality and systematic oppression of blacks in this country. Throughout the regular season, Kaepernick continued his protest by kneeling during the anthem. During a post-game interview that year, Kaepernick explained his position stating, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Overcrowded and unsanitary conditions which are pervasive in San Quentin and prisons across the country! In the Marion, Ohio prison fully 80% of prisoners have tested positive! Packing inmates like sardines in San Quentin Prison cells will infect many and some will die. Confined spaces like prisons, ICE jails and cruise ships act as incubators of the deadly COVID-19 virus.

El Comité de Acción Laboral para La Liberación de Mumia Abu-Jamal ha llamado una protesta/
caravana de automóviles en San Quentin State Prison el sábado 9 de mayo. Exigimos que el
Gobernador Gavin Newsom actúe para evitar que los prisioneros sean infectados por esta
pandemia mortal. Condiciones insalubres y el congestionamiento son sumamente comunes en
San Quentin State Prison y en las prisiones en todo el país. En la prisión de Marion, Ohio, el
80% de los prisioneros han dado positivo por coronavirus! El acto de poner a los prisioneros
juntos como sardinas en las celdas de la prisión de San Quentin infectará a muchos y algunos
otros morirán. Los espacios de confinamiento como las prisiones, las cárceles de ICE y los
cruceros actúan como incubadores del mortal virus COVID-19.

The caravan will begin at 11AM driving up Sir Francis Drake Blvd. to the West Gate of San Quentin State Prison.

Mumia Abu-Jamal : New Chance for Freedom

Police and State Frame-Up Must Be Fully Exposed!

Click here for a PDF version of this statement

Mumia Abu-Jamal is innocent. Courts have ignored and suppressed evidence of his innocence for decades. But now, one court has thrown out all the decisions of the PA Supreme Court that denied Mumia’s appeals against his unjust conviction during the years of 1998 to 2012!

This ruling, by Judge Leon Tucker, was made because one judge on the PA Supreme Court during those years, Ronald Castille, was lacking the “appearance of impartiality.” In plain English, he was clearly biased against Mumia. Before sitting on the PA Supreme Court, Castille had been District Attorney (or assistant DA) during the time of Mumia’s frame-up and conviction, and had used his office to express a special interest in pursuing the death penalty for “cop-killers.” Mumia was in the cross-hairs. Soon he was wrongly convicted and sent to death row for killing a police officer.
