Savage Pigwatch: End the 25 year frame-up of Mumia Abu-Jamal!

For 25 years, Uncle Sam has kept Mumia Abu-Jamal, one of the most eloquent and powerful spokespeople for the Black freedom struggle, behind enemy lines and fighting to save his own life.

Convicted by a judge whose aim was to "fry the nigger," Mumia was railroaded with coerced testimony and fabricated evidence that has since been recanted or dismissed. Someone else has even confessed to the crime for which Uncle Sam accused him!

He continues to languish today in one of Uncle Sam's torture gulags. Even Uncle Sam's pro-torture Department of 'Justice' acknowledges the racist nature of these concentration camps - the largest in the world by a large margin. AP reports:
Racial disparities among prisoners persist. In the 25-29 age group, 8.1 percent of black men — about one in 13 — are incarcerated, compared with 2.6 percent of Hispanic men and 1.1 percent of white men. And it's not much different among women. By the end of 2005, black women were more than twice as likely as Hispanics and over three times as likely as white women to be in prison.
Afrikan's know full-well about the institutional racism both inside and out of Uncle Sam's gulags. But obviously the case of Mumia is exceptional - that's why other countries name streets after him, a move denounced overwhelmingly by the House of Representatives in a striking display of where that body stands on questions of racism and injustice.

Free'em All!
