FREE MUMIA! Supreme Court May Give Him New Trial

This Black History Month, the Supreme Court may decide to review Mumia Abu Jamal's capital case. And they may grant him a new, fair trial.
This Black History Month marks just over 27 years in hell for Mumia Abu Jamal. His racist persecution must end. The United States Supreme Court is now considering a review of Mumia's case. The prosecutor is still pushing hard for his execution. And Governor Rendell says he is very ready to sign the death warrant. Mr. Rendell was the District Attorney whose office put Mumia on death row. Let's hope the High Court does the right thing and gives him a new trial.
It is time to bring this brilliant, innocent journalist home. His greatest "crime" was exposing the abuse, persecution, and prosecution of the "MOVE 9" in the "City of Brotherly Love," Philadelphia.
Mumia's incisive, often brilliant, commentaries can still be heard and read regularly at:
His book "WE WANT FREEDOM" is a Black History classic.
