About Mumia Abu-Jama
Mumia is an African American journalist who has been in prison for 18 years facing the death penalty. Last October 1998 Mumia had his appeal turned down, so entered a new phase where execution can happen at any time. Mumia was in the same situation three years ago when the execution was cancelled due to a huge international support campaign.
Mumia is innocent. He didn't have enough money to afford an attorney. The judge - obviously sympathetic to the police - didn't take evidence and witnesses into consideration. Mumia's trial was a fraud. A setup. They want to get rid of him because he is outspoken, because he doesn't keep silent before injustice.
Because he was a spokesperson for the Black Panthers branch in Philadelphia and because he has informed people of the repression and massacre of MOVE by the police of Philadelphia. Because still to this day he speaks out not just about the injustices committed in the very prison he is held in but outside too.
Mumia was president of the Association of Black Journalists and known by many as 'the Voice of the Voiceless'. Whilst in prison he has published two books and thousands of articles for all kinds of papers. You can check out how prolific he is by visiting his web-page: www.mumia.org. In this page you can find all the articles he has written about prison life, democracy, racism, injustice, environmentalism, imperialism and current affairs such as the bombing of Yugoslavia.
Again, the authorities know the affect Mumia is having, becoming a symbol for many people in different movements: justice and humanitarian groups, environmentalists, Blacks and race conscious people, revolutionaries, Christians, anarchists, etc. It's clear the authorities don't want to create a martyr but we don't want one either. We want Mumia alive, we want him free and we want it
