-UPDATE ON CAMPAIGN FOR A CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATION-
(SCROLL DOWN FOR INFO ON WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT!)
Keep those letters coming, and continue to call the DoJ every Thursday (see link for phone number and also where to send in petitions). We find that delivering the petitions/letters is the most dramatic and public way of doing this so please do not send them in on your own. Send them to the PO Box listed.
All indications are that it will take a lot of determination, hard work, and seriousness to get the DoJ to budge. We will continue the grassroots work, and we are honing are legal arguments based on strong and expert advice. We are determined to do what is necessary. We appreciate the tremendous support people have given this campaign. About 75 people from New York City managed to get down to 33rd and 8th Avenue at 5 AM (!!!) on April 26, and many had to skip work at this difficult economic moment to get on that bus. Others came from Albany, Pittsburg, and even France (Mireille Fanon Mendes-France (daughter of Frantz Fanon). Philly folks stopped in Maryland to pick up as many people as they could when the NY bus broke down. We waited for the others to arrive a few hours late, and then marched together with great spirit to the DoJ, where strong statements were made by participants when we got there. (See the video footage of all of this.)
Those who couldn’t come contributed in other ways: gave money to subsidize people who could not afford to pay, did outreach work, prepared our breakfast/lunch food, or designed banners for us. People showed their love for Mumia and their commitment to the struggle to free him in whatever way they could. Our movement is strong, very dedicated, and truly inspiring.
Ona Move! A luta continua!

SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN FOR A CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATION OF THE CASE OF MUMIA ABU-JAMAL!
To: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Department of Justice
I write to you with a sense of grave concern and outrage about the U.S. Supreme Court’s denial of a hearing to Mumia Abu-Jamal on the issue of racial bias in jury selection, that is, the “Batson issue”. Inasmuch as there is no other court to which Abu-Jamal can appeal for justice, I turn to you for remedy of a 27-year history of gross violations of U.S. constitutional law and international standards of justice as documented by Amnesty International and many other legal groups around the world.
I call on you and the Justice Department to immediately commence a civil rights investigation to examine the many examples of egregious and racist prosecutorial and judicial misconduct dating back to the original trial in 1982 and continuing through to the current inaction of the U.S. Supreme Court. The statute of limitations should not be a factor in this case as there is very strong evidence of an ongoing conspiracy to deny Abu-Jamal his constitutional rights.
I am aware of the many differences that exist between the case of former Senator Ted Stevens and Mumia Abu-Jamal. Still, I note with great interest the actions you have taken with regard to Senator Stevens’ conviction to assure that he not be denied his constitutional rights. You were specifically outraged by the fact that the prosecution withheld information critical to the defense’s argument for acquittal, a violation clearly committed by the prosecution in Abu-Jamal’s case. Mumia Abu-Jamal, though not a U.S. senator of great wealth and power, is a Black man revered around the world for his courage, clarity, and commitment and deserves no less than Senator Stevens.
