Mumia Hospitalized: Family Visitation Denied



Demand Mumia’s family hospital visitation rights


At 1pm EST today, Mumia Abu-Jamal had a medical emergency and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, PA.

SCI Mahanoy prison officials are blocking all family visits at Schuylkill. Mumia’s family is currently waiting at Schuylkill. We have absolutely no trust in prison officials to provide transparency on Mumia’s current condition to his family. Just weeks ago prison officials said Phil Africa was fine, and three days later he passed away.

Please make these calls now to demand that Mumia’s family is able to see him at Schuylkill ICU:
