  [col. writ. 9/11/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   Recently, a group of human rights researchers, responding to letters from Fayette prisoners, found a slew of environmental dangers and threats to the lives, health and well-being of hundreds of prisoners, guard and other staff members at the prison in Western Pennsylvania. The Abolitionist Law Center and the Human Rights Coalition, with the help of th...

  [col. writ. 9/12/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal Brothers! Sisters! Supporters and Family of Imam Jamil Al-Amin - Peace to you All! As salaam alaikum!   My mission tonight, given to me by Sis. Pam Africa, will be simple. I call it facing facts. Is it a fact that many of these men were subjected to torture and base humiliations? Is it a fact that those who committed these acts of torture - violations...

  [col. writ. 9/8/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   With the rapid strikes and seizures of Iraqi territory by the Islamic State (commonly known as ISIS), the West, given a splendid pretext by the horrific decapitations of two journalists, is mounting a counter-attack, if only by war.   So far, no Western state has yet announced the deployment of ground troops. Why are they there? They claim that ISIS is...

(***sorry for the lateness; blaming the mail as they just delivered it yesterday!)     [col. writ. 8/31/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal     What is Labor Day, 2014?   A day like all other days, not in honor of workers, but in cruel irony of workers’ impotence and defeat.   Celebrate Labor Day?  Yeah, sure.   But attack unions; denigrate union organizing, while calling for wage cuts and deregulation. The...

  [col. writ. 8/25/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   As the body of Michael “Mike “- Brown is consigned to the earth, network newscasters and broadcasters are packing their gear, canceling their hotel rooms, and setting their sights on new wonders, new images and new stories.   That the tragic saga in Ferguson struck national newscasters is both rare and unprecedented, given the length and depth of the ...

(col. writ. 8/9/14) © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   As U.S. F18s drop 500 lb. bombs on ISIS-controlled areas of Iraq, it does so, it says, to support the fleeing religious community of Yazidis.   U.S. President Barack Obama, supporting and indeed ordering the bombing, announced that this action was taken on humanitarian grounds, to “prevent a massacre” of a tiny religious minority targeted by the ISIS arm...

  (col. writ. 8/11/14) © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal Once again, a Black unarmed youth has been killed by a cop. And while the facts surrounding the shooting are presently unclear, what is clear is that a cop shot 18 year old Michael Brown 8 times. According to at least one eyewitness, Brown was shot as he stood with his hands up in the air. To anyone who knows American history, this is not a rarity. It...

  [col. writ. 8/6/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   As guns, rockets and bombs from fighter planes, go silent, the real war begins between the apartheid state, Israel, and the embattled occupied state of Hamas, on behalf of the captives of Gaza.   This is the war of words.   How can we say that words are more real than bombs?   Because, under the pressure of Arab states, the U.S., and Israel, Hamas is b...

  [col. writ. 8/3/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   As an ineffectual Congress gives voice to howling throngs decrying the influx of Central American children, it’s helpful to learn that this is not a new feature of American immigration; but as old as the country itself.   From the time of the first European colonial settlements in North America, there was a tendency to declare these arrivals natives, w...

  [col. writ. 7/28/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   An admission: I hate writing about August 8th, 1978.   Why?   It reminds me that 8 living MOVE members are still in prison today, over 33 years after the events of August 8th, 1978.   On the one hand, MOVE men and women, are model prisoners, and should’ve been paroled years ago. On the other, if they were anyone else, they would’ve been paroled long a...
