IN SUPPORT OF MUMIA

Small painted envelope for MUMIA: speak softly but with conviction, even when your nose is bleeding!


Mumia Abu Jamal was convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to death. He has been described as "perhaps the world's best known death-row inmate", and his sentence is one of the most debated today. Before his arrest, he was an activist and radio journalist who became President of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists. He was a member of the Black Panther Party until October 1970.

Since his conviction, his case has become an international cause célèbre, and he has become a controversial cultural icon. Supporters and opponents disagree on the appropriateness of the death penalty, whether he is guilty, or whether he received a fair trial. During his imprisonment he has published several books and other commentaries, notably Live from Death Row (1995).
Mumia was recently taken off death row and his sentence changed to life imprisonment, in response to popular support and activisim.

Mumia Transfer
We've received news that Mumia has now been transferred to SCI-Mahanoy, another prison in Pennsylvania. He is in "Administrative Segregation", he is not in general population yet. We need to let those administrators know, immediately, that we know Mumia is there and that the WORLD is watching. People need to flood the prison with calls and flood Mumia with postcards (Mumia needs to know that we have his back). ----
