Mumia: US Supreme Court decision expected next Tuesday

by Berlin Coalition to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Monday, Jan. 18, 2010 at 4:56 PM

Last Friday, January 15, 2100 the US Supreme Court spoke again in conference on the request by the DA from Pennsylvania to kill Mumia without further hearings. A decision is expected coming Tuesday. Activists all over the world prepare emergency protests. Meanwhile the defense of Mumia published a petition to Obama.

You can find the petition here:

http://www.petitiononline.com/Mumialaw/petition.html

It has been translated into 10 different languages and is approved by Mumia himself.

Please help to spread the petition to President Obama against the death penalty and for Mumia Abu-Jamal.

The exact wording of the petition:

To: President Barack Obama WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition you to speak out against the death penalty for Mumia Abu-Jamal, and all the men, women and children facing execution around the world. This ultimate form of punishment is unacceptable in a civilized society and undermines human dignity. (U.N. General Assembly, Moratorium on the Use of the Death Penalty, Resolution 62/149, Dec. 18, 2007; reaffirmed, Resolution 63/168, Dec. 18, 2008.)

Mr. Abu-Jamal, a renowned black journalist and author, has been on Pennsylvania’s death row for nearly three decades. Even though you do not have direct control over his fate as a state death-row inmate, we ask that you as a moral leader on the world stage call for a global moratorium on the death penalty in his and all capital cases. Mr. Abu-Jamal has become a global symbol, the “Voice of the Voiceless”, in the struggle against capital punishment and human-rights abuses. There are over 20,000 awaiting execution around the globe, with over 3,000 on death rows in the United States.

The 1982 trial of Mr. Abu-Jamal was tainted by racism, and occurred in Philadelphia which has a history of police corruption and discrimination. Amnesty International, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, “determined that numerous aspects of this case clearly failed to meet international standards safeguarding the fairness of legal proceedings. [T]he interests of justice would best be served by the granting of a new trial to Mumia Abu-Jamal. The trial should fully comply with international standards of justice and should not allow for the reimposition of the death penalty.” (A Life In the Balance - The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, at 34, Amnesty Int’l, 2000; www. Amnesty.org/en/library/info/AMR51/001/2000.)

[Note: This petition is approved by Mumia Abu-Jamal and his lead attorney, Robert R. Bryan, San Francisco (E-mail: MumiaLegalDefense@gmail.com; Website: www.MumiaLegalDefense.org).]

LOS ABAJO FIRMANTES le solicitamos que eleve su voz en contra de la pena de muerte de Mumia Abu-Jamal, y en contra de todas las ejecuciones con las que se enfrentan hombres, mujeres y niños alrededor del mundo. La pena máxima es inadmisible en sociedad civilizada y menoscaba la dignidad humana. (Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas, moratoria en el uso de la pena de muerte, resolución 62/149, diciembre 18, 2007; refrendada, resolución 63/168, diciembre 18, 2008).

El señor Abu-Jamal, célebre periodista y escritor negro, lleva casi tres décadas en el pabellón de la muerte en Pennsylvania. Aunque la suerte del señor Abu-Jamal en su calidad de recluso del estado está fuera de su control, a usted, quien ejerce el liderazgo moral en el ámbito internacional, le solicitamos que haga un llamado mundial para que cese la pena de muerte en todos los casos sancionados con la pena capital. El señor Abu-Jamal se ha convertido en un símbolo mundial, es “la voz de los que no tienen voz” en la lucha contra la pena de muerte y el abuso de los derechos humanos. Hay más de 20.000 personas que esperan su ejecución alrededor del mundo, y hay más de 3.000 en los Estados Unidos.

En el juicio de 1982 del señor Abu-Jamal se practicó el racismo. El juicio se celebró en Filadelfia cuya historia de corrupción y discriminación entre las fuerzas policiales es bien conocida. Amnesty International, (la organización de Amnistía Internacional), ganadora del premio Nobel determinó que muchos de los aspectos de este caso no cumplieron con las normas internacionales que garantizan la justicia de los actos jurídicos. “Con el fin de hacer justicia se le debe conceder un nuevo juicio a Mumia Abu-Jamal. . . . El juicio debe acatar todas la normas internacionales de justicia…no debe permitirse la una nueva aplicación de la pena de muerte.” (A Life In the Balance - The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, en 34; www.amnesty.org/en/library/info/AMR51/001/2000; www. Amnesty.org/en/library/info/AMR51/001/2000.)

[Nota: Esta petición fue aprobada por Mumia Abu-Jamal y su abogado principal, Robert R. Bryan, San Francisco.]
