Jack Heyman, International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) retired; Bob Price, author of a resolution on Mumia passed by the California Federation of Teachers (CFT); and other labor speakers will discuss labor’s fight back on these cases.

Tuesday July 19th, 7 pm Centro del Pueblo auditorium 474 Valencia, San Francisco (between 15th & 16th) FREE
This 70-minute film details the context of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s case under the racist police regime in Philadelphia in the 1970’s and ‘80s, and describes key evidence of innocence that was never heard in a courtroom. Despite the ongoing threat to his life from unjust incarceration and possible execution, Mumia Abu-Jamal, a working CWA NABET union journalist, supports working people world wide, honors picket lines, and defends victims of racist and imperialist oppression everywhere. Speakers will answer questions and describe the case. Jack Heyman (ILWU retired); Bob Price, author of a resolution on Mumia passed by the California Federation of Teachers (CFT); and other labor speakers will discuss labor’s fight back on Mumia’s case.
