Mumia Abu-Jamal

“What Does It Mean?”

A man plans, lies in wait, hunting for congressmen. He spots them, shoulders his semiautomatic rifle, and opens fire, intent on killing, and equally intent on dying. What does it mean? Congress has rarely been held in less esteem than it is now as it bows to corporate masters and unleashes hell on the poor, cutting, cutting, cutting from the poor and powerless in the name of freedom. What freedom? The freedom to starve, the freedom to yearn for medical care that is beyond one’s reach, the freedom to serve the rich. What does it mean? They will say it’s a madman. Until the next time.

From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
