IF WE FIGHT - WE WIN !
WE CALL FOR MUMIA'S IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM PRISON !
SEND A BIRTHDAY-CARD TO GIVE MUMIA MORE POWER FOR HIS NEW PROCES ON 24 APRIL.
Mumia Abu-Jamal has been in prison for 35 years now, from which 29 on death-row.
In 2011 his death sentence was definitely found unconstitutional.
He never received a fair trial and was not allowed to demonstrate his innocence in court.
Then he almost died in 2015 from the life-threatening illness Hepatitus.C.
He made a courtcase about the not giving him and the other 7ooo ill people the medicine to cure the hepatitus and
he WON the courtcase.SO SINCE A FEW DAYS MUMIS IS GETTING HIS LIFE-SAVING MEDICINE, ALSO MADE POSSIBLE
BY THE MANY SUPPORTERS WHO KEPT THE PRESURE ON.
On 24 april he will become 63 and on that same day there will be finally, after all these years a courtcase to prove
his freedom, first to be allowed to start the proces about it.
This former District Attourney (DA)
called Ronald Castille was instrumental in blocking an appeal from Mumiain 1989.
Shortly after the police brotherhood FOP financed his election campaign
to become Pennsylvania Supreme Court Judge. He even openly boasted that
he will not recuse himself from Mumia's case at the the time because
five other judges on this court had been paid by the FOP, too ...
So he turned down Mumia's appeal as a judge, which he had before stopped
as a DA. This is clearly a "conflict of interest" or in other words unconstitutionally.
Ronald Castille did the same thing with other prisoners, e.g. Terrence
"Butter" Williams, a fellow death row inmate with Mumia for many years.
Butter won a court case against this recently and will get an new trial
and this is what Mumia wants, too: a complete new trial where ALL the evidence is heard.
So, even if the court grants this to Mumia following April 24, it will
take a long time. First the District of Philadelphia (the other side)
could appeal (several state and federal levels). And if a positive
decision stands, than it takes a long time to prepare such a trial,
which will be very difficult after 35 (or more) years, because many witnesses have died since.
But even if Mumia looses in court, he has a chance to go through the
levels as well and raise public awareness about his injust trial. So all in all it is a positive legal development.
SO PLEASE SEND POSTCARDS TO MUMIA AND TO THE GOVERNOR OF PENNSYLVANIA(who also can grant mumia freedom.)
(Congratulate mumia with his victory of the hepatitus-proces( well his liver is already damaged!) and wish him luck in his
freedoms-proces,starting at 24 april)
