*#MumiaMonday: Make the Call For Mumia's Life*

MOVE and ICFFMAJ Statement on the Prison's Attempt to Murder Mumia

This government is actively killing Mumia right now at SCI Mahanoy. When 
Mumia was transferred to general population in December of 2012, Maureen 
Faulkner and the Fraternal Order of Police made it clear that they 
intended for him to die there. Maureen Faulkner stated that now the time 
“doesn't seem so far off” before Mumia “stands before his ultimate 
judge.” She hinted that she hoped he'd be killed by another inmate. They 
are currently carrying out that exact plan with prison doctors! Mumia 
was held in isolation for thirty years. When they saw that he had 
emerged from that strong, healthy, and determined, they decided to come 
at him another way. Despite being shot and beaten on December 9th, 1981, 
Mumia survived. They failed at executing him despite two execution 
dates, and after thirty years of isolation they couldn't break his 
spirit. Mumia's medical condition goes far beyond medical neglect or 
incompetence-- this is deliberate murder.

*Mumia's wife, Wadiya Jamal, visited him twice this week and witnessed 
that his condition is way worse than the previous week*. Mumia came into 
the visiting room walking baby steps, in severe pain, and talking slowly 
and quietly. His face was sunken in, his skin is blackened like a burn 
victim with open wounds, and his arms, torso, legs and testicles are 
severely swollen with skin that is tightened and hard from swelling. 
Sitting down and standing up are both painful.

Prison doctors say they don't know exactly what's wrong with Mumia and 
yet they won't allow outside doctors in to see him. It isn't that they 
don't know, it's that they know exactly what's happening and it is 
exactly what they intend to happen! One of the drugs Mumia is being 
given, Cyclosporine, is known to lower the immune system and to cause 
many of the symptoms Mumia is being tortured by: chills, aches, problems 
with speech or walking, muscle weakness, tremors or muscle spasms. Mumia 
is suffering horribly and he is stuck choosing between having no medical 
care or being treated by the people employed by an institution which is 
set on his murder. The only solution is for Mumia to be home with his 

*It's no accident that this attack on Mumia comes as people are rising 
up across the country to protest the police murders of Eric Garner, Mike 
Brown, Freddie Gray and many more. *Mumia's voice has been key in 
educating the world about these killings and in uniting people in 
struggle. As masses of people are rising up in rebellion they need Mumia 
silenced more now than ever. We must unite like never before to fight 
against this police terrorism and bring Mumia home! Mumia has given his 
life for this movement, he has sacrificed everything for true justice, 
now is the time to pay it back!
