International Teach-In and Call for Justice for Mumia Abu-Jamal (Feb. 13)

“Prison is a second-by-second assault on the soul, a day-to-day degradation of the self, an oppressive steel and brick umbrella that transforms seconds into hours and hours into days.” --Mumia Abu Jamal

Activists from Philadelphia, across the U.S. and around the globe will take part in an important video streaming, video conferencing and live teach-in on February 13 to take up the next stage in the struggle to free Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Updates will be provided on the latest legal developments including the Jan. 19 U.S. Supreme Court decision that opens the way for the reinstatement of the death sentence.

Information will be provided for those unfamiliar with this important case of the U.S.'s most prominent political prisoner and action proposals will be discussed including a global petition campaign calling on U.S. Attorney Eric Holder to open an investigation into civil rights violations in this case.

Other proposals will discuss activities to reach out to and educate students and youth; and for events from April to July including teach-ins and protests.

Participants will include Cynthia McKinney, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, Linn Washington, Ramona Africa, numerous international representatives, and many more.
