ANSWER leftists urge ACTION on PA prison to help Mumia

Posted on 08/21/2003 8:31:59 PM PDT by Gopher Broke

August 21, 2003

Dear ANSWER supporter:

We are forwarding the following email on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal, an African American revolutionary journalist who has been languishing on death row in Pennsylvania for 21 years. Mumia is known and loved worldwide as the "voice of the voiceless" because he has defended the rights of the poor, the oppressed and working people everywhere. Mumia has supported every anti-war demonstration and you have probably heard some of his solidarity messages played at many rallies. Mumia needs the support of all of us as he continues to fight for his freedom and more immediately, his right to decent health care. Please read the following information on the critical health crisis that Mumia is facing right now and respond as quickly as you can.

FORWARDED: A MESSAGE FROM INTERNATIONAL CONCERNED FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF MUMIA ABU-JAMAL---URGENT: MUMIA NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW!

It is with great concern that we report to you that Mumia has developed a potentially serious health condition affecting his feet, which have swollen painfully, making him unable to walk. Mumia suspects it may be due to blood clotting, a situation which can be very dangerous.

Health conditions are serious matters for prisoners, and blood clotting can be fatal. Please flood the prison's phone lines and demand that Mumia be allowed to be examined by an outside doctor of his choice.

SCI Greene prison: (724) 852-2902

During the Day from 8:00am to 5:00pm, ask for Superintendent Folino

During the Night, 5:00pm to 8:00am ask for Captain Hall. If gone during late night, ask for current Shift Director.

In light of Mumia's health condition, please also contact these elected officials who are supportive of Mumia and ask that they put pressure on SCI Greene Prison and demand that Mumia be allowed to be examined by an outside doctor of his choice.

Remind them that even simple health conditions can turn serious in prison conditions, and that sickness brought about by incarceration is one of the leading killers of prisoners. Mumia's condition should be considered very serious until proven otherwise. If the swelling of his feet is indeed being caused by blood clotting, this is potentially life threatening situation.

Senator Vincent Hughes: hughes@dem.pasen.gov

Representative Harold James: 215-462-3308 http://www.hallwatch.org/profiles/pahouse/hjames/faxbank/writeletter

Congressman Chaka Fattah: Go to e-mail form going to http://www.house.gov/htbin/wrep_findrep and typing in 4601 Market, Phila, PA 19143-4616 to get to email form.

It takes a special kind of person to care more about a cop-killer in an American prison than innocent Cuban dissidents in a Communist gulag.

Yup. Death row could definitely be described as a pretty critical health crisis.

Dawg, you have to remember that murders, sexual perverts, rapists, robbers [democrat politicans], thieves, socialists, communists, liberals, and leftists are all blood brothers and sisters.

I suppose that I could have put democrat after each name and not been too far off.

Or people being murdered and tortured by the thousands by a brutal regime. Some, because they didn't win their soccer game.

...hmmm...lets see...first, we establish a serious health concern on his record...next, we get him moved to a infirmary or hospital ward....then, we get him transferred to a near-by hospital for special treatment. Now we have our chance to bust him out and move him into the underground. What a plan!

What a pity he had to throw it all away by shooting da fuzz.

"Mumia suspects it may be due to blood clotting, a situation which can be very dangerous."

Don't tell me that we subsidized this bastard's medical school education!

"...demand that Mumia be allowed to be examined by an outside doctor of his choice."

Sure, the doctor of his choice. Bwaaahahahahahahahahahhehehehehehehehehehehe!

Buy your favorite police officer his or her very own "FRY MUMIA" t-shirt at www.abnerjones.com

Mumia derserves to be six feet closer to Hell, not in a 6 by 6 cell.

And to dispell any charges of "racism", let it be known that I want Ed Asner to sit on his lap when he rides the lightning.

PS: A.N.S.W.E.R. is led by a crony of North Korea's little goose stepping Elvis impersonator, Kim Jung Mentally Ill. And he gets the honor of having a banquet in a country where 2 million have starved since the 90's.

Sounds like the ones asking for an end to war and racism really don't walk the walk.

The wacko libs got him either a new sentence or a new sentencing hearing, so I think he's off death row for now.
