Don't let them murder Mumia

MORE ACTION is being organised in defence of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the award winning black US journalist. Mumia has been on death row for 17 years after being framed for the murder of a police officer. Mumia continues to speak out, and recently wrote in support of the Seattle protests against the World Trade Organisation.

A US judge will decide soon whether to grant Mumia a retrial. If this appeal fails he will be executed shortly afterwards. International activities are planned over the next two months. In Britain this includes:

  • Friday 4 February: Day of action in colleges across Britain.
  • Saturday 5 February: Mass leafleting in Brixton and Tottenham in London.
  • Saturday 4 March: National demonstration for Mumia, assemble 1pm, Embankment, London. Rally at 3pm, Trafalgar Square.
