Mumia Abu-Jamal on Democracy Now !
Don't forget to flood the Governor of Pennsylvania with freedom postcards for Mumia.

Today a courageous and dedicated Mumia joined Amy Goodman on Democracy Now to comment live
on the Democratic National Convention. Mumia puts Trump & Clinton as a son of Philadelphia. Mumia shares an update on the fight for
live-saving hepatitis C treatment for him and all prisoners. And he ends by asking folks to read Michelle Alexander's February-article in
the Nation, titled "why Hillary Clinton does not deserve the Black Vote".

Angela Davis calls for action.
The 'one million roses'-campaign was one of the keys that opened my prison-
cell in 1972, when 100 of 1000ths of people sent postcards with roses to me, to express their solidarity and demand my freedom, while i was in jail, facing possible death sentence.
My 2 years in prison were tough enough on me – now try to imagine someone
living there for more than 34 years! “A bright shining hell,” is how Mumia
Abu-Jamal used to refer to the tiny concrete bathroom he had to stay in for
22 hours every single day for nearly 29 years, while he was on death-row.

At the end of 2011 his deathsentence was definitely found unconstitutional-
which even in strictly legalistic terms means, he should never have been in
this dark place to begin with.
That alone should be enough for the Governor of Pennsylvania to pardon him.

Much is pointing to his innocence; he never received a fair trial and was not
allowed to demonstrate his innocence in court.
Now he faces another kind of death-sentence: a life-threatening illness(active hepatitus c), for which he is not receiving the needed treatment in prison, cause the prison-authorities rather see him dead.
Mumia and his lawyers started a courtcase, demanding adequaat treatment;
the outcome of this case will be half januari. If he wins, he has made a precedent for the other 10.000 sick prisoners waiting for the right treatment....
the Governor of Pennsylvania has the power to grant freedom to Mumia.
