LAC Statement on the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Withdrawal of Appeal

April 23, 2019
The recent decision by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, withdrawing the DA’s opposition to Mumia’s appeal from the Tucker decision, came about because of the persistent and dedicated efforts of political organizers across the United States and internationally.
This decision did not come out of nowhere. If rallies and marches had not been organized in Philadelphia; if individuals and organizations had not taken action to convince the RebLaw Conference at Yale, in February 2019, to do the right thing and disinvite Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner; if activists had not repeatedly and consistently shown up at the DA’s office to confront DA Krasner; if individuals of conscience had not contacted DA Krasner to place personal pressure on him; and, most importantly, if the supporters of Mumia Abu-Jamal had not kept up the political fight on his behalf, the District Attorney’s office would not have made this decision at all.
