News From The Worldwide Movement to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal

The Paris-based National United Collective In Solidarity with Mumia Abu-Jamal joined in the annual Die-In against the reinstatement of the U.S. Death Penalty and for the release of Mumia on Wednesday evening, July 2, 2008. The Collective acted in solidarity with the U.S. actions to mark the 26th anniversary of Mumia's unjust conviction and death sentence. The dramatic Die-In on Place de la Concorde is in full view of the tourist attraction of the Eiffel Tower and directly in front of the U.S. Embassy, where the Collective has held weekly vigils in solidarity with Mumia for many years. This is the 13th annual Die-In, performed in coalition with anti-Death Penalty groups, and attracts hundred who die-iin and bear silent witness. France abolished the Death Penalty in 1981.
