In a court case that could eventually lead to Mumia Abu-Jamal’s freedom, Judge Leon Tucker has ordered the District Attorney’s office to present new testimony in reference to Ronald Castille. A status Hearing will take place  Monday, April 30 for the former Philly Black Panther Party activist.

Castille is a former PA Supreme Court judge who refused to disqualify himself when Mumia’s case came before the court despite having been the Philadelphia District Attorney during Mumia’s prior appeals. The US Supreme Court has ruled such conduct unconstitutional.

The people’s movement forced the courts to take Abu-Jamal off death row in 2011 but his freedom was not won. Despite his innocence he was re-sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

As an innocent man, Mumia must be freed! It is even more urgent that he gain his freedom because he is suffering from cirrhosis of the liver, severe itching and other ailments.

What you can do:

  • Call DA Larry Krasner at (215) 686-8000.
    Tell him to release all DA and police files on Mumia to the public.
    Tell the DA to release Mumia because he’s factually innocent.
  • Organize an event for Mumia
  • Pack the court on  4/30.
