Pam Africa Update, New Petition & Flyer, Press Conference, and Dec.6 
(NYC) & Dec.8 (Phila) Protests for Mumia By Journalists For Mumia

MEDIA-ACTIVIST CAMPAIGN: Two weeks ago, Journalists for Mumia (in 
conjunction with The International Concerned Family and Friends of 
Mumia and Educators for Mumia) initiated a 
<http://www.freemumia.com/todayshow.html>media-activist campaign to 
ensure fairness for Mumia on the Dec. 6 NBC Today Show, which is 
scheduled to feature Michael Smerconish and Maureen Faulkner as they 
release their new book titled 
<http://globepequot.com/special/murderedbymumia/>"Murdered By Mumia."

UPDATE FROM PAM AFRICA: As a result of our campaign, The Today Show 
scheduled a telephone conference with Pam Africa (of the ICFFMAJ) for 
this past Friday. Following this conference, Pam Africa reported that 
she spoke with the show and provided them with our Press Pack of 
background information on Mumia's case. The Today Show did not make 
an official decision regarding our request, but said they would look 
at the information and contact Pam Africa this week with their 
official response to our desire to have equal representation on The Today Show.

PROTEST AT THE TODAY SHOW: As reported at FreeMumia.com, "The Free 
Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC) calls on everyone who can join us on 
Thursday December 6th at 7:15 AM to please come to 48th Street and 
Rockefeller Plaza....We have demanded "equal time" but as yet have 
gotten no agreement to that by the TODAY SHOW. Stand there with us in 
solidarity with Mumia!"
NEW PETITION: As this campaign heats up, sending emails to The Today 
Show (<mailto:today at msnbc.com>today at msnbc.com) is more important than 
ever, so NBC knows that people around the word are demanding 
fairness, and paying close attention to the upcoming Dec. 6 show. 
Fortunately, a new petition assisting these efforts has just been 
created. Please sign onto it and share with others

NEW FLYER: Journalists for Mumia has just completed 
<http://www.abu-jamal-news.com/flyerMBM.pdf>a new flyer responding to 
Smerconish and Faulkner's new book (PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!), 
accessible at this link:


PRESS CONFERENCE: The formal press-release announcement of 
Journalists for Mumia's press conference on Tuesday, November 4, in 
Philadelphia, at NOON, at The A-Space, 4722 Baltimore Avenue 
(featuring a slide show presentation of the newly discovered crime 
scene photos, and journalists David Lindorff & David A. Love) will be 
released on Sunday.
