Pics from PDC Free Mumia rally, March 28, downtown NYC

Aman Gill | A demonstration called by the Partisan Defense Committee on March 28, 2008, near City Hall in Manhattan rallied support for activist Mumia Abu-Jamal in the wake of a recent court decision against him. On March 27, 2008, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia upheld Mumia Abu-Jama's conviction of murder. The ruling, should it withstand appeal, disallows further challenges to the conviction despite a preponderance of evidence pointing to Mumia's innocence and to a police misconduct in investigating and prosecuting the case. It leaves Mumia facing two stark choices: life in prison or death by execution. more...  5 Comments

Ruling Against Mumia Shows: No Justice in the Capitalist Courts

Internationalist Group | On March 27, the U.S. appeals court in Philadelphia reaffirmed the frame-up conviction of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Black Panther Party spokesman and world-renowned radical journalist who has been locked up on Pennsylvania’s death row for more than a quarter century. After previously rejecting Mumia’s request to present evidence of his innocence, as well as a host of issues showing that he was railroaded by a racist court, the Court turned down Mumia’s request for a new trial. It upheld the 2001 ruling by a federal district judge that ordered a new hearing on the sentence, but limited the “choice” to the living hell of life imprisonment without parole ... or execution. Mumia is innocent. He was declared guilty and sentenced to die because of his revolutionary politics and because for years he had been a thorn in the side of the racist rulers of the misnamed “city of brotherly love.” Around the world, millions have come out in defense of Jamal. This latest ruling, like all those that preceded it, shows that the exploited and oppressed must have no faith in the racist injustice system. We call on the workers movement to mobilize its power to free Mumia now! more...  0 Comments

Statement from Pam Africa re. Mumia court decision and April 19 Philly Demo

Pass the Equity Bill First Before Talk About Tibet- JFAV

Justice for Filipino Veterans(JFAV) | Compensate the Filipino World War II veterans. Pass the Equity Bill first and do Justice to the Veterans, before you speak of justice and freedom in Tibet.” This was the suggestion the Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV), a California based alliance of youth, veterans and community groups pushing justice and equity to Republican Senator John McCain and Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the U.S. Congress. Arturo P. Garcia, JFAV Coordinator said: “When the leaders of the US Congress speaks of freedom in far-away countries like Tibet in China, while perpetuating injustice in America, it is just playing plain politics. Tend to your own first. Give justice to Filipinos who were marginalized for 62 years and then speak for the freedom for others later. “ more...  0 Comments
