Mumia Abu-Jamal wins right to re-open appeals — Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement

“Abu-Jamal’s attorneys will argue against the constitutional violations that unfairly convicted the imprisoned journalist who is suffering from the ravages of Hepatitis C and glaucoma.”

Just as I stated on another blog about this, the man is about to drop dead and so this bit of grandstanding is ridiculous. When it counted, the man should have been granted the right to have his appeals heard, but since he is dying from the ravages of disease, now is the time to grant him the right to have his appeals heard??!!! Seriously??!!! The ‘white’ man is not doing Abu-Jamal any favors with these latest shenanigans. I have seen far too many Black prisoners get out of prison because they are just about dead and so let them out because they are literally dead men and women walking. Fuck this shit!

Let’s ALL thank whitey-pink ass for extending to a dead man walking the right to re-open his appeals. Like that fucking matters since the man is now ravaged by disease and has been the Fed’s incarcerated slave for the last 37 goddamn years. Whitey-pink ass, you’ll never get a goddamn ‘thanks’ from me for a goddamn thing so stick this latest shit up your ass, you bunch of depraved, debased parasites! Fuck you!

The Most Revolutionary Act

Community activists and leaders from the Philadelphia region will hold a news conference 12 noon, Thursday, April 18 at the Octavius V. Catto Statue on the south side of Philadelphia City Hall to discuss today’s decision by District Attorney Larry Krasner to finally relent to Pennsylvania Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker’s ground-breaking decision which gives political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal the right to reopen his appeals.

By rescinding his appeal, Krasner has removed a major hurdle for Abu-Jamal to eventually be released after 37 years in prison. This is a significant development in Abu-Jamal’s quest for freedom.

Public pressure on Krasner’s office to do the right thing and rescind the appeal gained momentum in early February when Yale Law School students publicly withdrew their invitation to Krasner to deliver a keynote address to their Rebellious Lawyering (Reb/Law) conference. In Philadelphia, activists often confronted Krasner whenever he spoke in public…

  1. As I mentioned on my blog, I feel really grateful that the committee to free Mumia was powerful enough to get him off death row. The white men who control the criminal justice system are extremely powerful and never do Black political prisoners any favors. Winning any concession from them requires that they feel personally threatened in some way. Sadly the movement to free Mumia is still quite small. From what I can see, it has been repeatedly infiltrated by police and government spies who have repeatedly disrupted their organizing efforts.

    • I am sure that is true, in that the “police and government spies have repeatedly disrupted” the efforts by groups to win Mumia’s release since that is standard procedure. We should all know by now how the FBI’s COINTELPRO ) was aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations. FBI records show that COINTELPRO resources targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed subversive, including the Communist Party USA, anti–Vietnam War organizers, activists of the civil rights movement or Black Power movement (e.g. Martin Luther King Jr., the Nation of Islam, and the Black Panther Party), environmentalist and animal rights organizations, feminist organizations, the American Indian Movement (AIM), independence movements (such as Puerto Rican independence groups like the Young Lords), and a variety of organizations that were part of the broader New Left.

      I put nothing past this goddamn corrupt, racist government and especially not the so-called Criminal Justice System which is racist down to its very core and nothing will change!

      Dr. Bramhall, I thank you for your comment!
