In his new book, “Dude, Where’s My Country” Michael Moore states that Mumia Abu-Jamal is probably guilty of murdering the Philadelphia policeman Daniel Faulkner. This is irresponsible journalism! Moore did not talk to or write to Mumia, he did not talk to anyone actively involved in his defense, nor did he contact any of Mumia’s past or current lawyers. His book notes on this comment do NOT cite any of the many web sites, which contain the massive new evidence developed during the past few years, which would convince any objective journalist that Mumia is innocent; that he has been the subject of a massive frame-up.
When the Labor Action Committee learned of this devastating blow to Mumia we immediately took steps to try to organize a protest demonstration at Moore’s San Francisco presentation on his new book. When this failed we made and carried a banner for the anti-war march in San Francisco reading:
“Mumia Is Innocent: Another Man Confessed.
Philly Cops Planned Murder. Free Mumia Now.”
