Open letter to Colin Kaepernick about Mumia Abu-Jamal

November 29, 2016

Greetings Colin, We salute your courageous action protesting police brutality throughout the U.S. We are heartened to see others, including entire teams and athletes in different sports, joining you. Besides shooting Black people to death in the streets every day and every night, American law enforcement is seeking the slow death in prison of dozens of heroes of the resistance of the ‘60s and ‘70s. We urge you to speak out on the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Leonard Peltier: Statement of solidarity with Mumia Abu-Jamal

March 13, 2010

As such, every single progressive organization should oppose the death penalty as we now know it.

Urgent! Support needed for Imam Jamil

February 28, 2009

Imam Jamil Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, was once Minister of Justice of the Black Panther Party – always a servant of the people. We must come to his rescue just as he struggled to rescue us.
