PENNSYLVANIA POLITICAL PRISONER MUMIA ABU-JAMAL HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR
COVID-19. Supporters learned of the diagnosis March 3, as they were
gathered in front of the office of Philadelphia District Attorney Larry
Krasner to call for Abu-Jamal’s release and that of all incarcerated
people over 50, who are vulnerable to premature death from COVID-19 and
DUE TO MISMANAGEMENT OF THE VIRUS CRISIS, PRISONERS IN PENNSYLVANIA ARE
EXPERIENCING HIGH RATES OF COVID. Exempt from mandatory testing and
refusing to wear masks, guards and other prison staff are the source.
Mumia Abu-Jamal is a journalist, former Black Panther, and after being shot
by a white police officer and framed for murder in 1981, a world renowned
political prisoner. HIS REVOLUTIONARY WRITING HAS UNCOMPROMISINGLY
CRITICIZED THE INSTITUTIONS OF WHITE SUPREMACY, IMPERIALISM, AND
Next month, he will turn 67 years old. The last 40 years of incarceration
has had a devastating effect on Mumia's health. He suffers from cirrhosis
of the liver after contracting Hepatitis C in prison and has acute
dermatitis all over his body. After contracting COVID 19, he now also has
congestive heart disease. THE ONLY TREATMENT FOR THESE AILMENTS IS, AT LONG
LAST, HIS UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE FROM PRISON.
Join BETSEY PIETTE and TED KELLY of the Prisoners Solidarity Committee of
Workers World Party in a panel discussion with PAM AFRICA of the MOVE
Organization and International Uncompromising Concerned Family and Friends
of Mumia Abu-Jamal; DR. JOHANNA FERNANDEZ, author of The Young Lords; and
SANTIAGO ALVAREZ, fellow student of Mumia Abu-Jamal's at UC Santa Cruz.
