“Right now the situation with Mumia is more critical than ever. As you may know, another man named Arnold Beverley has confessed to the murder of officer Faulkner and passed lie-detector tests, but the PA courts are refusing to consider his confession. Judge Patricia Dembe ruled yesterday that she had no jurisdiction over this case, basically meaning no action will be taken re the confession or other new evidence. Judge Yohn is expected to make a ruling as well, given his previous record we can expect him to also rule against accepting new evidence. That will leave Mumia with only one more recourse, the federal court. It is extremely difficult to get a case heard by them. The situation does not look good for our brother.
“Basically it’s up to the people to generate as much heat as possible around this and put the system at notice that they cannot get away with murdering our innocent bredren, not even with all the flag-waving hysteria generated by Sept. 11th. Towards this end:
“DEC. 8th, PHILLY- Major demonstration for Mumia- all who can be there should be there. You know these system people is watching us to gauge if they can get away with murdering Mumia, we gotta represent and show them that they gonna be facing TOO MUCH heat from TOO MANY people. All who live in the NYC area, there will be buses to Philly from NYC, call 212 330 8029 or visit this page.
