Mummers and "Ebonics" by Jah Free I(www.dreadtimes.com)         Every New Year's Eve when I buy the Philadelphia Daily News, I immediately throw away the special wrap-around section on the Mummers. I join the legions of Black and Brown folks in the city who avoid everything associated with Philadelphia's Mummers Day Parade, religiously held every New Year's Day. In case you didn't know, every...

  [col. writ. 3/27/14] ©’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal In a trial that may be unprecedented anywhere in the world, an Egyptian court recently returned 528 death sentences to many supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. In what is seen as the latest attempt to destroy the group, the military government held the mass trial over two days in the city of Minya. Amnesty International’s Mid-East and North Afric...

  [col. writ. 3/23/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   The mystery of Malaysia’s flight 370 has become the latest tool of corporate-media manipulation and over-saturation.   Instead of reporting on facts and investigations, we get a plethora of speculation -- rumor and frankly, fear-mongering.   Why?   The answer is obvious: ratings.   Most cable news networks have received a doubling of their regular rat...

  [col. writ. 3/21/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal The United States has tried, several times, to stage a coup against Venezuela, especially during the outsized life of the late Presidente, Hugo Chavez.   It was April of 2002, when U.S. backed corporate and military forces ousted Chavez, and tried to install a puppet regime. Within days, the streets of Caracas came alive to bring back Chavez, and rest...

  [Speech writ. 3/19/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   Dear Sisters and Brothers; Dear Members of DC-37, Local 372; Dear fellow workers!   As I thought about what to say to you, a thousand thoughts flooded my mind. I wondered about your children, and for some of you, your grandchildren. What do they know about Mama’s work, or Grand pop’s union?   Do they know, even by broad strokes, the history of how w...

  [col. writ. 3/19/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   With the annexation of Crimea to the Russian Federation, U.S. politicians have gone coo-coo, raising Cain about it, likening it to Hitler’s seizure of Poland, with Americans snarling about violations of International Law, and ‘land grabs’.   Almost immediately, Americans and Europeans, citing threats of “regional destabilization”, announced sanctions ...

  [col. writ. 3/10/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   In all my years, I’ve never seen such biased, negative and nasty news coverage as I have of the Philadelphia-based MOVE Organization. There may be one exception: the coverage of the so-called Central Park 5, the young men charged (and later cleared) in the rape and beating of a young New Yorker.   Possibly.   But both are test cases in media demonizat...

  [col. writ. 3/7/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   The U.S. Senate rejection of U.S. Department of Justice nominee, Debo Adegbile for the post of head of that agency’s Civil Rights Division is, more than anything, the triumph of fear and lies over reason and fact.   Adegbile, by all accounts, is an able, skilled litigator, who had been an exemplary candidate for the post.   But the Broad Street Bullies...

  [col. writ. 3/9/14] © ’14 Mumia Abu-Jamal   It is a national crisis. Worse, it is a crime.   Schools, all across Black America and in El Barrio, are closed –shuttered.   What does this mean?  It means that the one source of social advancement –education – is being narrowed, so that few can access it.   The political class has been bought off and made so inconsequential that it either supports th...
