from Sis. Fatirah Aziz:
Please, please continue to send letters/emails to President Barack Obama on Mumia's behalf. He is the President of the United States, and even if he doesn't directly pardon Mumia, he certainly has the power to initiate an investigation, or other executive action!
NOTE: This is a sample letter, you can replace Mr. Obama with Eric Holder or further personalize it and send it out!
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear President Obama:
I am writing to request that you grant an Executive Pardon, or at the very least, insure that the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal is reviewed by impartial entities. If you or Mrs. Obama investigate this case,you will find innumerable instances of judicial misconduct, evidence tampering and racism. The Governor of Pennsylvania, Edward G. Rendell, the District Attorney Lynn Abraham, and the Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Ronald D. Castille, all had a part in rail-roading Mumia. These are the people who are still in power and who thwart every attempt at justice for Mumia.
Mumia is an innocent man. He is a sought after speaker (via audio tapes) at commencements in prestigious universities and other events. He is the author of weekly columns and several best-selling books. Many in the entertainment and educational field have taken up his cause as they realize the injustice being carried out. It is a disgrace and a shame that this wonderful man has been incarcerated for more than thirty years, based on the agenda of those in power.
Realizing that you have a platform for Change and Fairness, I appeal to you and Mrs. Obama to please see that justice is realized in this case. These are his specifics:
Mumia Abu-Jamal # AM 8335
