Save December 6th for an International Day of Solidarity with Mumia!
"I see no reason why we should not afford Abu-Jamal the courtesy of our precedents. Why we pick this case to depart from that reasoning I do not know."
- Judge Thomas Ambro
Once again the courts have ignored and changed precedents to illegally continue the imprisonment of Mumia Abu-Jamal. In July the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against three issues that could have led to a new trial. One of the three judges on the panel, Judge Thomas Ambro, dissented against one of the rulings pointint out that it ignores precedent.
Other than the US Supreme Court this was the last appeal to have his conviction overturned. Without an outpouring of public protest, Mumia will either be executed or will spend life in prison without the possibility of parole.
