Sept. 6 - Important event for Mumia - French Delegation (Philly)
PLEASE FORWARD At this critically urgent stage in the fight for Mumia's life the Fraternal Order of Police have been waging a vicious campaign to try to kill him. When the city of Saint-Denis, France named a street in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal the FOP went crazy. Racist, conservative politicians introduced resolutions laced with dangerous lies in Philadelphia City Council, The House and Senate aiming to bully the French government to change the name of the street.
Join us, Wednesday, September 6th at the AFSC at 15th and Cherry in Center City Philly. Stand in solidarity with the delegation who will fly into Philly from France in order to put pressure on US officials and to clear the air about the lies surrounding the street naming for Mumia. Come at 5:30 pm to view "the Framing of an Execution" - a documentary on Mumia featuring Danny Glover and Angela Davis. Then at 6:30 join us for a work oriented town meeting to strengthen the international struggle for Mumia and all political prisoners. The Delegation from France includes: Patrick Braouezec, Representative of the French National Assembly, Julia Wright, ICFFMAJ spokesperson in France and daughter of acclaimed author Richard Wright and Rafael Barontini, Coordinator of the Mumia Committe of Saint-Denis. Speakers will include the above as well as Death Row exonoree Harold Wilson, Attorney Michael Coard, Tonya McCleary and others.
