Mumia Abu-Jamal: Next steps after 37 years

2018/12/12

mumia fencePolitical prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal has now been incarcerated for 37 years. December 9 marks the anniversary of his imprisonment and of the people’s determined struggle to liberate him from Pennsylvania jails. In Philadelphia, activities marking this day were scheduled during the week before the anniversary. Things kicked off on Dec. 3 with over 75 people rallying outside the Criminal Justice Center as the in-court hearing on Abu-Jamal’s nearly two-year appeals process wrapped up inside.

The court hearing was brief. Abu-Jamal’s attorneys reported that they have not exhausted their search for a missing document requested under the Pennsylvania Freedom of Information Act. They stated they would not request an extension, but asked for a provision that the document could be submitted if located at a later date. Then both sides agreed they had no additional evidence to submit, and Judge Leon Tucker closed the hearing. He stated that he would make a ruling after reviewing “the tremendous amount of documents.” Gehiago irakurri…

BRITAIN’S FORGOTTEN BLACK PANTHER

2018/12/07

Mumia BPP england4History Check: The rise and fall of Britain’s forgotten Black Panther movement – This is the first of our new series – History Check – which will dig deeper into the forgotten legacy of Africans at home and in the diaspora that needs to be remembered for posterity.

We start with the forgotten Black Panther movement of Britain which was created during the peak of the revolutionary African American Black Panther Party (BPP) founded to challenge police brutality against the black community.

Going by the name British Black Panthers (BBP), the movement existed from 1968 to 1972 and was founded by Darcus Howe, Linton Kwesi Johnson and the late Olive Morris to educate British black people about their history. Gehiago irakurri…

2018/12/07

Mumia Abu-JamalAfter 37 years in prison, this former Black Panther member is still fighting to be free – Former Black Panther member, radio journalist and celebrated writer Mumia Abu-Jamal was in 1982 convicted for the murder of  Daniel Faulkner, a white police officer.

Mumia was arrested a year before for shooting Faulkner and killing him instantly but he pleaded innocent, citing self-defence. The altercation happened when Mumia spotted the officer ‘harassing’ his brother, who was driving his car. His attempt at intercepting led to shootings between them. Mumia, who was shot in the stomach, was found on the ground and rushed to the hospital to receive treatment. He was immediately sent to the police station after treatment.

mumia Elbert Big Man Howardx Mumia Abu Jamal: Era uno de los seis hombres originales que construyeron el Partido Pantera Negra. Se llamaba Elbert Howard, pero pocas personas usaban ese nombre.

Para sus amistades y camaradas en el Partido Pantera Negra, él era “Big Man”, porque realmente era un hombre grande, con cuerpo de jugador de futbol americano.

Era uno de los seis hombres originales que construyeron el Partido Pantera Negra y llegó a ser el Viceministro de Información. Durante un rato era editor del periódico, The Black Panther.

Nacido y criado en Chattanooga, Tennessee, él sirvió en la Fuerza Área, y después de ser dado de alta, se quedó a vivir en California. Gehiago irakurri…

El infierno bipartidista

2018/10/09

usa muro mexikox Mumia Abu Jamal. Las guerras contra los migrantes, al parecer, son bipartidistas, porque los dos partidos corporativos utilizan el miedo para impulsar a los votantes a acudir a las urnas. En una gran parte del discurso público actual, se escucha un llamado al bipartidismo, en el cual los dos partidos políticos corporativos de Estados Unidos trabajan juntos ‘para lograr que se hagan las cosas’. Por lo regular, el llamado viene de las élites de los medios corporativos o de intelectuales que lamentan la falta de civilidad ahora. Gehiago irakurri…
