Emergency demonstration for Mumia Abu-Jamal

Date & Time: 
Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 12:00 to 14:00
Location: 
Oakland Federal Bldg. 1301 Clay Street, Oakland near downtown BART

Peaceful demonstration: Mumia Abu-Jamal's life is in danger, this time due to conscious Medical Neglect of prison officials. Last week Mumia was within minutes of death as his blood sugar levels rose to close to 800. He was in diabetic shock and dangerously close to diabetic coma due to prison officials administration of the wrong medications.

On Saturday, April 11, as part of a national mobilization to save Mumia's life, we are demanding that Mumia be allowed to be seen by competent medical doctors chosen by his family and legal team, that is, specialists in diabetes/endocrinology. Prison officials have to date denied Mumia's request.

This current incident raises the number of government efforts to kill Mumia to six, including three police beating and a shooting and three efforts to "legally" press for his execution. Our movement has prevented all such attempts on Mumia's life.

We continue to demand Mumia's freedom now! Join us!
