Demonstrate in Philadelphia November 9: Mumia Abu-Jamal must be alive and free!

Be in Philadelphia on Tuesday, November 9, outside the Federal Courthouse at 6th and Market.  Rally at noon before the 2 pm hearing before the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.  The hearing is occurring because the U.S. Supreme Court has ordered the Court of Appeals to reconsider its previous decision to throw out the death sentence on Mumia.

If the appeals court finds against Mumia, as the Supreme Court has strongly hinted it should, Mumia could very soon be facing a new death warrant and execution date.

A mass movement, reaching far and wide in society and around the world, was a crucial factor in stopping the rulers of this country from executing Mumia in the 1980s and '90s. At this moment, people must come together behind the demand to free Mumia Abu-Jamal.
