New Video by Hans Bennett

From Hans Bennett:

Hi folks,

I am writing to share my new 20 minute DVD video, "Fighting for Mumia's Freedom: a report from Philadelphia," pulling together a wide variety of video footage I've gotten this year in Philadelphia. Featuring original footage from 2008 in Philadelphia, this video focuses on the March 27, 2008 denial of a new guilt-phase trial for death row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, the DA's continued attempt to execute him, and the response of Abu-Jamal and his international support network. This features Pam Africa, Linn Washington Jr., Sundiata Sadiq, J. Patrick O'Connor, Ramona Africa, Julia Wright, Veronica Jones, Rebel Diaz, and more.

This DVD was first made explicitly for showing at the Dec. 9 event for Mumia in Portland, Oregon. However, I just put it online for everyone to watch, and so it can be used as an educational tool during the week of events around the world, based on the Dec. 6 International Day of Action. So this video can best be utilized, it is available in several different formats.

I hope you enjoy the video, and please help spread the word about the video, as well as the crucial Dec. 6 demonstration in Philly and elsewhere.
