TOWN HALL MEETING IN PHILADELPHIA
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2006
AFSC, 15th and CHERRY STREET, PHILADELPHIA
This event is critical towards beating back an F.O.P. inspired attack on Mumia that is designed to lead to his legalized, sanitized murder, which is most serious and escalating by the day!!
At this critically urgent stage in the fight for Mumia's life the Fraternal Order of Police have been waging a vicious campaign to try to kill him. When the city of Saint-Denis, France named a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal the FOP went crazy. Racist, conservative politicians introduced resolutions laced with dangerous lies in Philadelphia City Council, The House and Senate aiming to bully the French government to change the name of the street. "
Old news? Hell no! The aforementioned bullying now includes blatant lies that are falsifying documents to get Mumia executed, AND a statement that Mumia hit Officer Daniel Faulkner several times before allegedly shooting him. They are COUNTING on us to SLEEP on this and it's OUTRAGEOUS!! Hold up... As if that weren't enough.... this
blood-thirsty lynch mob is also stating that Mumia has exhausted all appeals, when he in fact has a handful of appeals left, therefore misleading many to believe that he is going to be executed anyway, so why not aquiesce to the F.O.P.'s demands!! TRICKNOLOGY IS IN FULL EFFECT, STRUGGLE PEOPLE!!!!
CHECK IT: This bullying has also included attacks on French Mumia supporters, including Sis. Julia Wright, whose HOME suffered an attempted break-in and frightening unidentified surveillors sitting outside of her home. Further intimidation has included men dressed as police officers tearing down the street signs honoring Mumia and vandalizing sites designated by the French activists in support of Mumia!!
FURTHERMORE, H. Con. Res. 407 is being purported as being in the "people's" name ... and we MUST let them know before they resume session on SEPTEMBER 15 that they are not speaking for ANY of us, they are speaking for the F.O.P.!!!! BEFORE SEPTEMBER 15!!!
The ICCFMAJ needs YOU to be at the very important meeting on SEPTEMBER 6 IN PHILADELPHIA. Don't worry about food, cuz food and refreshments will be provided for FREE! Just show up, bring whoever! There will even be free documentary DVD's given away on the case of Mumia.

Join us, Wednesday, September 6th at the AFSC at 15th and Cherry in Center City Philly.
