Chicago - United-Front Protest

Mumia Abu-Jamal Is Innocent! Free Mumia Now!

Abolish the Racist Death Penalty!

Initiated by the Partisan Defense Committee and the Labor Black Struggle League

Saturday, April 26, 12 Noon

Federal Plaza

(Adams and Dearborn)

The Partisan Defense Committee and Labor Black Struggle League have initiated united front protests in Chicago and Los Angeles on April 26 under the slogans “Mumia Abu-Jamal is Innocent! Free Him Now! Abolish the Racist Death Penalty!” There will also be united-front protests in a number of other U.S. and international cities on April 19.

These protests come in the wake of the March 27 Third Circuit Court of Appeals decision upholding Mumia’s frame-up conviction for the killing of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. This decision is a slap in the face for all opponents of racist injustice. It is urgently necessary to mobilize for freedom for this former Black Panther Party member, MOVE supporter and renowned journalist, who faces the prospect of either a new death sentence or being buried alive without parole.

A partial list of endorsers already includes Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 and Local 241 (Chicago), United Auto Workers Local 3212 (Chicago), attorney Standish Willis, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) New York Chapter, Emma Lozano of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, Gay Liberation Network (Chicago) and Prof. Michael Eric Dyson.

Help build the protest! Contact the PDC for rally flyers and material on the fight to free Mumia!
