Freedom for Mumia – Freedom for All!

December 9, 2017, will already be the 36th anniversary of the arrest and
incarceration of the former Black Panther and African American
journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal. The struggle for his freedom also stands for
36 years of struggle against racist police violence, political
repression, the death penalty, and mass incarceration in the United
States. At the core of the struggle for Mumia’s freedom is the struggle
to overcome a slavery that has never really ended and exercises its
modern form in the guise of the prison industry of the country.

Much was achieved in the years that have passed: We could avert for good
the execution of Mumia’s death sentence. It turned out to be possible to
attain medical treatment for Hepatitis C for Mumia and hundreds of other
prisoners in the State of Pennsylvania. Currently, Mumia and the
movement are fighting for the reconsideration of the deeply flawed trial
that led to his false conviction in 1982. At present, one special focus
in these efforts is on files of the District Attorney’s Office that the
prosecution illegally refuses to hand over to the defense.

MUMIA - You Will Never Walk Alone!
