Philly Officials Attempt to Withdraw Awards Given to Mumia

Dear Friends,

The movement to free Mumia in France as well as the movement in this country must be doing the right thing! The City Council of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Police Department are working on trying to get the City of Paris and the City of Saint-Denis to withdraw the respective honors they bestowed on Mumia. They are sending a delegation consisting of four city council members and the chief of police of Philadelphia, later this month to try to persuade the French to do their bidding. The document linked below demonstrates their totally hypocritical and damned lying arguments for withdrawing these awards, claiming they themselves do not support the death penalty. Rather, they say, waving the carrot before Mumia
supporters and supposedly Mumia, they believe he should get life in prison without parole! Will they try to get the street naming project in Harlem stopped as well? Or have they aleady tried?

The movement in France is prepared to greet this delegation. And we are surely ready to continue the struggle here.
