The Fight to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal

A Fight Against Racist U.S. Capitalism

Mumia Abu-Jamal, former Black Panther, MOVE supporter and journalist known as the “voice of the voiceless,” is an innocent and framed political prisoner.

A new legal action against judicial bias in his appeals opens the door to Mumia’s freedom. The judge ordered the DA to release evidence from its files, but the prosecution continues its cover-up.

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.

On December 9, 2016 it will be 35 years since the police tried to execute Mumia Abu-Jamal, a former Black Panther and revolutionary journalist, the “voice of the voiceless.” Unable to kill him, the cops, courts and politicians conspired to frame him and sentence him to death for a crime he didn’t commit. Actions on this date will happen worldwide, and Oakland must be part of these protests!

It’s High Time for Mass Mobilization to Free Mumia!

by Jack Heyman and Eric Clanton

(Originally published on Counterpunch here).

Could Mumia Abu-Jamal, one of the twentieth century’s most high profile political prisoners, a powerful and renowned author and a former Black Panther, have hope of being released after 34 years in prison, 30 of those years on death row? Could Mumia, unlike the anarchists, Sacco and Vanzetti, or the Communists Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed by the state, finally see the light of day after decades in prison like former Black Panthers Geronimo Pratt, the Angola Three and Eddie Conway?

Mumia Denied Treatment for Hepatitis-C….

But Judge Decries State’s Protocol for Hep-C Inmates 

04 September 2016 — A federal court has denied innocent political prisoner and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal the life-saving medicine that could cure his Hepatitis-C. Based on a technicality–that Mumia didn’t file the suit against a PA state agency that didn’t even exist at the original time of filing over one year ago–this much-delayed ruling was “disappointing” in the words of Mumia’s lawyers, to say the least.
