Mumia's condition grave: Take Action

 Stop the Medical Execution of Mumia Abu Jamal

Mumia Abu Jamal is a distinguished Black journalist and ex-member of the Black Panthers who was fitted up by the Police for the killing of a US cop.  He spent 30 years on death row for the killing of Daniel Faulkner.   

He was denied the right to represent himself and had a paid and incompetent lawyer.  He has been vilified by Democrats and Republicans alike but has fought the system since been incarcerated in a Pennsylvania gaol since 1982. 

He is now dangerously ill and the prison authorities are now trying to murder him.  I have been sent the appeal below so that people can respond.
