NOTE:  WE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED THE WEEKLY CALLS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF 
JUSTICE WHILE WE WERE AWAITING FEEDBACK FROM SEVERAL LEGAL EXPERTS ON 
HOW TO PROCEED WITH OUR LEGAL ARGUMENTS TO THE DoJ GIVEN THAT THEY 
WERE REFUSING TO GRANT A CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATION OR PURSUE A 
DISCUSSION ABOUT IT. WE ARE INVESTIGATING DIFFERENT LEGAL ARGUMENTS.

WE HAVE ALSO ACCEPTED AN INVITATION TO PRESENT THE CIVIL RIGHTS 
CAMPAIGN TO AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE THAT WILL BE HELD IN ALGERIA 
AT THE END OF NOVEMBER. WE EXPECT THAT INTERNATIONAL BODY WILL JOIN 
OUR PRESSURE CAMPAIGN ON THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.  WE WILL KEEP YOU 
POSTED ON ALL THESE DEVELOPMENTS.

FOR NOW, ON THE OCCASION OF TWO FILMS ON MUMIA BEING SHOWN IN 
PHILADELPHIA TOMORROW, ONE SUPPORTED BY THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE 
AND THE OTHER PRODUCED BY PROFESSOR JOHANNA FERNANDEZ TO PRESENT A 
RATIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE EVENTS SURROUNDING THIS CASE, WE ARE TAKING 
THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE PEOPLE CALL THE DOJ AGAIN TOMORROW.  WE STILL 
SAY:  THERE IS A SOLUTION TO THIS CASE, A COMPREHENSIVE CIVIL RIGHTS 
INVESTIGATION BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WHICH WE ARE CERTAIN WOULD 
PROVE THAT MUMIA'S GUILTY VERDICT NEEDS TO BE OVERTURNED.  WE WILL BE 
DOING THIS AGAIN NEXT WEEK AS WE PREPARE FOR THE WORLD DAY AGAINST 
THE DEATH PENALTY, OCTOBER 10TH.

SO PLEASE CALL THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE ONCE AGAIN, TODAY, TUESDAY, 
SEPTEMBER 21st.  THE HOTLINE IS OPEN 24 HOURS BUT BEST TO TIE IT UP 
BETWEEN 9 AND 5. TAKES ONLY 2 MINUTES. 202-353-1555. DEMAND A CIVIL 
RIGHTS INVESTIGATION OF MUMIA'S CASE!

Politely but forcefully, demand a civil rights investigation into the 
case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Sound logical and knowledgeable: that you 
know the Department of Justice has the jurisdiction to conduct a 
civil rights investigation when egregious violations of civil rights 
have taken place. Explain that Mumia never got a fair trial, and that 
there is extensive evidence of police,prosecutorial,and judicial 
misconduct, as well as strong evidence of Mumia's innocence that
was systematically excluded by the courts from the record.

If the hotline, 202 353-1555, doesn't answer, call the main
Justice Dept. switchboard number, 202-514-2000 and tell them what 
you're calling about. KEEP THOSE SIGNED LETTERS TO ERIC HOLDER COMING 
TO: FMAJC, PO BOX 16, COLLEGE STATION, NEW YORK, NY 10030. IF YOU 
CAN'T DOWNLOAD A PETITION FROM THE WEBSITE, PLEASE LET US KNOW BY 
LEAVING A MESSAGE AT 212 330-8029. You can also ask people to sign
online if that is easier. Go to freemumia.com and click onto "Civil 
Rights Investigation".

ONA MOVE!

INTERNATIONAL CONCERNED FAMILY & FRIENDS OF MUMIA ABU-JAMAL AND THE 
FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL COALITION (NYC)
