we are asking you to make calls and sign the petition below. In recent

delayed his access to cataract surgery. The petition below calls not 
only for this medically necessary procedure to be performed without 
delay, but also for the release of Mumia, a factually innocent man.

On July 3, 2019 please take time to make calls to the numbers below. 
Please sign the petition (on-line) if you haven’t and share it with your 
social media networks. Please download the petition and collect

Mumia Abu-Jamal should receive cataract surgery immediately!

Mumia should be released now not only because he can receive better 
healthcare outside of prison but also because he is an innocent man!

Message from Mumia to Prison Radio:

Now, cataracts: Do you know what cataracts are? Imagine you're wearing a 
very dark pair of sunglasses; Now smear the lenses with thick swabs of 
Vaseline. That's cataracts--from the inside. But it doesn't end, for 
there is no pair of glasses to remove. It's... your eyes. They don't 
work anymore like they used to.

There's a man here, an "Old Head" who is functionally blind (although he 
has some vision in one eye). One of his eyes is as blue as a robin's 
egg, but it's dead. He has no vision in it. Imagine that; a Black man 
with a blue eye! That's what prison eye care can get you! alla best, maj"
