AW@L Radio - 2010-11-20 - Free Mumia Rally in Toronto + Mumia Speaks!

Stop the Execution of Mumia Abu-Jamal!

On November 9, the U.S. Third Circuit Court in Philadelphia will hear
oral arguments concerning whether Mumia Abu-Jamal, a black journalist
and political prisoner who has been on death row for 28 years, should
be executed or given a new sentencing trial. If the court rules
against Mumia he could soon be executed. According to lead attorney,
Robert R. Bryan, Mumia is now "in the greatest danger since his 1981
arrest."

In 2001, U.S. District Court Judge William Yohn ruled that before
Mumia could be executed there must first be a new sentencing-phase
jury trial where new evidence could be presented. This 2001 ruling was
affirmed by the U.S. Third Circuit in 2008, but in January 2010, the
U.S. Supreme Court vacated that ruling and sent the case back to the
Third Circuit for reconsideration.

Mountains of evidence, including witness recantations, a confession
from the actual killer and photographic evidence of the crime scene,
proves Mumia's innocence. Yet state and federal courts have slammed
the door on this outspoken opponent of war, racism, police brutality
and corruption. We have to stop them! Mumia must be freed!
