Check out the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition website for great pictures by lalroohk of the June 15 event calling for the naming of a Harlem Street for Mumia, " of the very exciting youth-oriented event of the Harlem Campaign to Name a Street in Honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal, starring Immortal Technique. Nana Soul, Orie Lumumba, and other young activists joined DeLacy Davis of Black Cops Against Police Brutality, Igwe Williams of the Guillermo Morales-Assat Shakur Center of City College, and an NAACP youth speaker from Jamaica in focusing on Mumia, police terror, and the criminalization of our youth. Strong support for Mumia and the street naming campaign was clearly evident in the many statements the performers and the audience made ending with a rousing statement from Pam Africa about the power of the people, and the demonstration of that power in the streets of Philadelphia on May 17th, as well as the very moving performance and statement from Immortal Technique."
