NYC ABC: Letter-Writing Dinner For Mumia Abu-Jamal

With folks lining up in droves to take part in their consumerist rituals for the holidays, one may think that all is well.  The fact that political prisoners are still being held captive by the State tells us otherwise.  In the spirit of love and solidarity we ask folks to join NYC ABC this Tuesday as we end another year of our every-other-week letter writing dinners by writing to Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is an African-American writer and journalist, author of six books and hundreds of columns and articles, who has spent the last 30 years on Pennsylvania’s death row and now general population. Mumia was wrongfully convicted and sentenced for the murder of a Philadelphia cop. The demand for a new trial and freedom is supported by heads of state, Nobel laureates, distinguished human rights organizations, scholars, religious leaders, artists, scientists and, as important, millions of folks like you and us. For more information, be sure to visit bringmumiahome.com.

We expect to see you on Tuesday. If you can’t make it, please take the time to write a letterto Mumia:

Post Office Box 33028
St Petersburg, Florida 33733

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.
