“Manufacturing Guilt” is the single best film explaining the police frameup of Mumia. It is available as an extra from the DVD “Long Distance Revolutionary” (produced by First Run Features and available from the LAC).
The following presentation by Eliot Grossman, lawyer for Mumia, was made at a united front meeting for Mumia in 2002.
Rachel Wolkenstein was recently interviewed by Dennis Bernstein of KPFA Flashpoints.
The interview includes an in-depth discussion of the current appeal, and the six boxes of files “discovered” by the DA’s office after the hearings were complete. Wolkenstein also explains how the evidence shows that Mumia arrived on the scene of the shooting after Daniel Faulker was shot.
The Labor Action Committee to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal invites you to a film showing at the OMNI Commons this Friday evening, April 19th.
From Death Row, Mumia Abu-Jamal
4799 Shattuck Ave.
We will discuss the breaking news from Philadelphia with the DA’s announcement that they will not appeal Judge Tucker’s ruling, provide a legal update, and discuss next steps.
This ruling has the potential to lead to Mumia’s release. It is of critical importance that all of Mumia’s supporters keep their efforts up for a mass mobilization to Free Mumia!

Mumia Abu-Jamal’s Speech to the RebLaw Conference – “Rebel Lawyers”
February 15, 2019
Dear friends at Yale Law School, dear Rebel Lawyers – On a Move!
I greet you all, as I attempt to address the issue of Rebel Lawyers. When I think of the term, the first thing that comes to mind are jailhouse lawyers. They are, by definition, rebels who oppose the prison-industrial complex, especially in the courts. Jailhouse lawyers fight for freedom, for themselves and others, and sometimes they prevail. Some jailhouse lawyers, like John and Mo Africa of the MOVE Organization, defended themselves at trial, and won acquittals. Because such men and women aren’t trained in the law, and do their work using logic and sheer will, they fall under the description of Rebel Lawyers, I think.
