MUMIA IS ALWAYS THERE FOR US; WE MUST BE THERE FOR HIM!
From: Mumia NYC (<mailto:info at freemumia.com>info at freemumia.com)
SAVE THURSDAY NOVEMBER 12TH FOR THE DELIVERY OF THE LETTERS, CALLING
FOR A CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATION OF MUMIA'S CASE, TO ATTORNEY GENERAL
ERIC HOLDER !!!
11 AM PRESS CONFERENCE
1 PM DELIVERY OF LETTERS TO JUSTICE DEPARTMENT
AT THIS CRITICAL MOMENT IN MUMIA'S CASE, A CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATION
COULD MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH FOR HIM. IT COULD
ALSO OPEN THE DOOR FOR MUMIA'S ULTIMATE RELEASE.
There is right now a very dangerous converging of forces committed to
the execution of Mumia. Lynne Abraham, the current District Attorney
in Philadelphia, is calling loudly for the Supreme Court to reinstate
Mumia's death sentence so that Governor Ed Rendell can do what he has
repeatedly promised to do: sign the death warrant. The US Supreme
Court is currently reviewing a death penalty case that could have
serious implications for Mumia. A ruling on Mumia's case could come anytime.
To cover up the obscenity of their trying to murder an innocent Black
man, a great thinker and revolutionary, they now have a Black man,
Seth Williams, leading the race for those running to replace DA
Abraham. Williams, who is expected to be the next DA of
Philadelphia, has stated that he believes Mumia is guilty and should
be executed. He is being actively supported by the Fraternal Order of Police.
Finally, on December 9th, the 28th anniversary of the original
incident that led to Mumia's incarceration and death sentence, a new
film, a hit-piece, called "The Barrel of a Gun" also produced by a
Black man, will premiere both in the US and Germany.
