Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report
National Edition
Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
“And The Walls Came Tumbling Down”
Mumia Abu-Jamal, Angela Davis, Soffiyah Elijah,
and Marc Lamont Hill

Recalling in now its 41st year the Attica prison massacre of courageous
prisoners who rose up against dehumanizing conditions, thousands came
together to follow their lead and resist the burgeoning system of caging
human beings. Insisting that solitary confinement cease, that Attica be
closed, and that the pipeline from community to prison be turned off, and
rallying against what has now become referred to as the “New Jim Crow”
the crowd reached a crescendo after Mumia Abu-Jamal, political prisoner,
author, journalist and social critic, reached by phone spoke to them
delivering a message that left everyone present with a sense of hope,
good feeling and determination, to tear down the walls and shutter the
prison-industrial system.

This extraordinary event was sponsored by the International Concerned
Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal; The Riverside Church Mission
and Social Justice; the Riverside Church Prison Ministry; the Correctional
Association of New York; the New York State Justice Network and the
Campaign to End the New Jim Crow.
