Revolutionary Greetings to all!
I recently received detailed information which exposes the under-lying reasons behind Comrade Mumia Abu-Jamal’s Medical Crisis. Hepatitis C – can be fatal but in our age of advanced medical technology Hepatitis C and other diseases cannot only be managed, they can be cured!! The main story here is that the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections has conspired to murder Mumia!! This is not Hyperbole or Conjecture, these are the facts and I am very confident that Brett Grote of the Abolitionist Law Center and Robert J. Boyle of New York City will shed light in a court of law on the Deliberate Indifference, Medical Neglect, and Conspiracy to Commit Murder perpetrated by Pennsylvania D.O.C. employees!!
There is no sense in sugar-coating or down playing what is going on here. We must not allow this situation to be covered up or down played. Somebody knew Mumia was sick!! I don’t believe this was a mistake or an accident – oh not they knew exactly what they are doing!! I said this once and I will say it again: There is co-ordinated effort spanning the United States to silence and exterminate the most advanced political elements in our movements who speak truth to power! The sad reality is that many of our most gifted minds are trapped in Amerikkkan Prisons and Jails. You see these hypocrites screaming about human rights and justice when a foreign government has wasted human life or murdered its citizens. Let me tell you something. Amerikkka is Killing Mumia!!! This is not some foreign occupier doing the Killing, its Amerikkka. They have perfected the art of murdering the Lumpen (broken) underclass on Amerkas streets and inside its prison Slave Camps and Modern Day Gulags. We know that there is a cure for the disease of Imperialism which is eating the entire World alive?! We must demand that Mumia be given the life saving medication and then we must get serious about demanding that the United States of Amerika release Mumia. And if they won’t release Mumia?? Then possibly we can lobby for a transfer of Mumia to a country that respects the rights of Human Beings, a country which does not allow Prison Officials to conspire to kill the prisoners in their care!!! A Country which does not pawn itself off as the champion of the down-trodden when in reality it funds programs which murder innocents by remote control and protects rogue/racist police who murder its citizens in the streets!!!
YOU CAN’T KILL MUMIA!!! I AM MUMIA!!! KEVIN “RASHID“ JOHNSON IS MUMIA!!! LYNNE STEWART IS MUMIA!!! NOELLE HANRAHAN IS MUMIA!!! ANGELA Y. DAVIS IS MUMIA!!! JAMIL AL AMIN, SEKOU ODINGA, CAROE SELIGMAN, VICTOR WALLIS, JOHANNA FERNANDEZ, LAURA WHITEHORN, SALIM HOLBOOK, MUTOPE DUGUMA, SITAWA NANTAMBU JAMAA!!! You can’t silence nor murder all of us!!! WE WILL FIGHT FOR MUMIA’S FREEDOM TILL DEATH OVER TAKES US!!! Dare to Struggle. Dare to Win. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE.
Keith “Malik“ Washington is the Deputy Chairman of the New Afrikan Black Panther Party and United Panther Movement – Texas Region. Malik was just recently denied parole for the 4th time! The Board cited that he had not done enough time on a non-ag 20 year sentence of which he has served 7 ½ years and his total good time and work time have accrued to 15 years toward his 20 yr sentence. Good time and work time in Texas is a Scam!!! Malik was denied parole because he continues to fearlessly speak truth to Power!! Send Malik some love or light!! He would love to hear from you
