Here's something else to be concerned about:
In a court case that could eventually lead to Mumias freedom, Judge
Leon Tucker has ordered the District Attorneys office to present new
testimony in reference to Ronald Castille. The hearing will take place
Castille was a Philadelphia DA. Later as a PA Supreme Court judge, he
refused to disqualify himself when Mumia's case came before the court
despite having been the DA during Mumia's prior appeals. The US
Supreme Court has ruled such conduct unconstitutional.
The peoples 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.
The people fought for and won hep C treatment for Mumia but he now
suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and continues to suffer pain and
severe itching from a skin ailment. Life without parole is still a
death sentence for thousands of prisoners, especially when decent
health care is routinely denied for people behind bars.
Mumia has been unjustly imprisoned for 36 years. He should be released
