Dear Mumia Supporters -

This December 9th is a historic date -- it marks the 27th anniversary of the attempted murder of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the killing of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner on December 9, 1981, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Events which lead to the framing of Mumia, who has been unjustly incarcerated ever since. For 27 years, the courts, police and politicians have been trying to execute Mumia, who is on Death Row for his politics, courage and wisdom, not because of any crime he committed.

This December 9 also marks an important date and a step towards justice for another innocent person incarcerated on Death Row - Troy Davis. Troy was set to be executed when an incredible international campaign was mounted in his defense, forcing the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to agree to hear oral arguments whether Troy can be executed even if he can present evidence proving his innocence. Troy has been on Death Row in Georgia for 17 years, framed for the murder of a police officer. There are many legal and factual similarities in the cases Mumia and Troy, both of whom are not only fighting for their lives but to defend the constitutional rights of everyone. A statement by William S. Sessions, a former district court judge who served as FBI director from 1987 to 1993, is printed below and provides further background into Troy's case.

Join with the Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal and many other organizations and individuals to Demand Justice and Freedom for Mumia and Troy! End the Death Penalty! Stop Police Brutality!

Join us on Tuesday, December 9, 4:30 to 5:30pm - Federal Courthouse, 7th and Mission Streets, San Francisco! Similar rallies are taking place in many cities around the world - see below.
