April 30: Pack the Court to Free Mumia

BACK IN COURT FOR A STATUS REPORT ON MUMIA'S APPEAL!  SHOW UP FOR MUMIA!

BACK IN COURT FOR A STATUS REPORT ON MUMIA'S APPEAL! SHOW UP FOR MUMIA!

The DA's Office will GIVE A STATUS REPORT on how they will handle the Williams precedent in Mumia's case. Come to the courthouse to let them know that we demand they comply with the precedent: Mumia should never have had one of his appeals heard by a judge who was formerly the DA fighting his prior appeals - and NO ONE SHOULD! Mumia should win the right to have his appeal heard fairly!

It's important to pack the court on both March 27 and April 30, when this series of court proceedings is expected to end with a final decision on Mumia's bid to re-open his appeals.

Dear Comrades, Friends, and Mumia Supporters:

As of today we are happy to announce that the organizations below have agreed to initiate the March 27th Offensive to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal expecting, of course, the many other organizations that signed onto the International Call to join us. Though the court hearing will be until April 30, we are asking all Mumia supporters to hold rallies March 24-27 to help raise awareness about Mumia's case as well as the cases of many other political prisoners and of mass incarceration.

We have set up an event page for the Offensive to Free Mumia which people around the world can now access, at freemumia.com. We also have a form, below, on which you can submit your activities/ events/ demonstrations so that we can post them.

To date, the French Collective has announced a very important contribution to this campaign initiated by The French syndicate of Journalists of the CGT (the largest and most widely recognized French labor union). The International Federation of Journalists, which has 600,000 members in 140 different countries, is publicly announcing its support for Mumia. Attached is the union’s letter to Governor Wolf..

And, of course, the court hearing will take place on Monday, April 30 so that all eyes will be on Philadelphia that day. Bus arrangements from New York City are being planned, and people from other cities and countries have begun to let us know that they are planning to come to Philadelphia on that day as well. We have received several commitments regarding people coming from France. Also, we got word that there is some planning for an activity afoot in Senegal.

Please let us know as soon as you can about any plans you may have for events or for coming to Philadelphia on April 30.

A luta continua, and onto a successful international offensive leading up to and on Monday, April 30!

PACK THE COURTHOUSE FOR MUMIA!

Judge Tucker has ordered an evidentiary hearing for Wed, January 17, 2018 his order is for the DA’s office to show cause why it should not locate and produce Gayle McLaughlin Bartholdi, Esq. to present testimony regarding the content of the documents of the DA’s office says it cannot locate in reference to her memorandum to Ronald D. Castille on March 27, 1990.

Ronald Castille is a former Philadelphia District Attorney who became a PA Supreme Court judge. He refused to recuse himself when Mumia's case went to the PA Supreme Court despite having been the DA during Mumia's prior appeal.

The Supreme Court has since ruled that behavior unconstitutional in a different case where Castille did the same thing.
