Police Attack Mumia Demonstration Protesting Mumia's 20 years on Death Row

Urgent Response Needed

Police attacked the Mumia demonstration today in Philadelphia called by International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal. At least 7 people were

arrested including youth who work with International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal in Philly, someone who worked with the October 22nd Coalition in New York, and a member of Refuse & Resist! from Chicago. Three of those arrested are in the hospital. Charges include

felony assault and felony riot.

More than 600 people demonstrated to mark the 20 years our brother Mumia has lived, locked down, under threat of death by the government. There was a rally at City Hall, speeches at 13th and Locust and then a march to The Ethical Culture Center for an indoor rally. A few blocks from the Center,

people in the middle of the march were attacked by the police. Some were thrown to the ground. Cops used their batons to beat people. People were maced. A gun was put to the head of a demonstrator. Another demonstrator dragged away by the neck.

This is a dangerous time for the people. From death row, Mumia has used his voice to speak to and for millions around the world who are raising their voices against racism, war, injustice and the destruction of the earth. We

will not let this voice be silenced. They will not silence our voices.

Call to protest these arrests and the brutality of the police:

-- Deputy Commissioner Sylvester Johnson 215-686-3358; 686-3359

-- The 9th Precinct 215-686-3007

-- Mayor John Street 215-686-2181
