Mumia Abu-Jamal’s spiritual advisor confronts DA Krasner and the FOP

If Krasner does not challenge the FOP on Mumia Abu-Jamal, then he really has not challenged the FOP fundamentally. He may achieve some short-term gains for “progressive” prosecuting, and indeed he has, but he has not really challenged the police power of the state that wants to kill Mumia and defeat the revolutionary and more humane form of the state for which Mumia fights.

Mumia update: The new Krasner brief

In the urgent struggle by justice advocates, friends and family to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, another challenge exists in trying to determine why “progressive” DA Larry Krasner continues to defend Mumia’s conviction in the face of overwhelming evidence of his innocence, and abetting the apparent determined effort by the state to kill Mumia while he is held captive.

New legal action is a path to Mumia Abu-Jamal’s freedom, but...

For over three decades, thousands of organizations and hundreds of thousands of individuals around the globe have mobilized to save Mumia Abu-Jamal from execution, to overturn his conviction, to demand his freedom. Without these international mobilizations, crucially including the organized labor movement, we would not have saved Mumia from two warrants of execution and compelled the state to concede defeat in trying to execute him.
