Dear Supporters and Friends of Mumia,
About ten days ago, we let you know that International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition will be in Detroit at the upcoming US Social Forum. We specifically mentioned the Prison Assembly that we have participated in planning. That Assembly will take place on Thursday, June 24 between 1 and 5:30 PM in Cobo Hall . Sundiata Sadiq will be representing us at that Assembly Both Suzanne Ross and Sundiata were involved in its planning conference calls. In addition, we will be participating in the People's Assembly on Cointelpro. Suzanne will be present at that. That workshop is taking place at the same time as the Prisoner Justice Assembly, also in Cobo Hall, at 1 PM. We think both the Assembly and workshop are very important not only in their own right, but specifically for our work to free Mumia.
As for workshops: we will be participating in three of them.
US POLITICAL PRISONERS: LEONARD PELTIER, MUMIA ABU-JAMAL, AND THE CUBAN FIVE, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1-3 PM, WC3, Room 348,
Delaney Bruce, Chair, National Free Leonard Peltier Committee, Marjorie Cohn, past Presdient of the National Lawyers Guild, Pam Africa , International Concerned Family & Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal & Suzanne Ross, Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC), Stan Smith, Chicago Committee to Free the Cuban 5. We will be discussing similarities and differences between these three cases and how we can help each other to free them all.
YOUTH & STUDENTS TO FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1-3 PM
Learn about the case of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, why young people continue to be inspired by him 28 years after his incarceration on Death Row, and why his case continues to be so important today.
Larry Hales, leader of the March 4 student/youth protests, recently visited
Mumia, and Pam Africa of International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Sundiata Sadiq will be present at that workshop.
THE LONGEST RIDE FOR THE CUBAN FIVE, MUMIA, AND PELTIER: TRANSFORMATION MINISTRY, THURSDAY, JUNE 24, 10AM – NOON
The Longest Ride for the Cuban Five, Mumia, and Peltier.
Disciples of the Healing of Humanity! The Transformation Ministry.
We don't know much about this workshop but we will be there as we have been working very hard for the past year as members of the Riverside Church Prison Ministry in New York (the legendary church at which Dr. Martin Luther King gave his 1967 speech against the US war against Vietnam).
Also, look for our table. We will have large visible signs about Mumia. We could definitely use help in giving out palm cards, getting letter/petitions to Eric Holder signed, selling Campaign for a Civil Rights Investigation buttons and the Amnesty International Report on Mumia's case.
If you'd like to contact us, and we look forward to meeting as many of you as possible, call Sundiata Sadiq at 914-672-5807 or Suzanne Ross 917-584-2135. We will be in Detroit by Monday night and staying through at least Friday.
Ona Move! Long live Mumia! Long live the people's struggles! May this coming week energize, clarify, and unify us all!
