Thu Nov 12 2009 SF Demands A Civil Rights Investigation For Mumia Abu-Jamal
On Sunday, November 8th, the SF Bay Area Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal organized an event at Centro Del Pueblo in San Francisco. The event focused on three innocent men who may soon be executed soon, depending on upcoming court rulings: Troy Davis, Kevin Cooper, and Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Laura Moye, the Director of Amnesty International's Death Penalty Abolition Campaign spoke about Troy Davis. Activist Rebecca Doran spoke about Kevin Cooper.

Speaking about Mumia Abu-Jamal was Hans Bennett, co-founder of Journalists for Mumia and author of the new pamphlet published by the Mobilization to Free Mumia, entitled “The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal: Innocent Man on Death Row.” The pamphlet features the June 16, 2009 SF Bay View Newspaper article by Bennett, that cites several instances of withheld evidence and argues for a federal civil rights investigation into Mumia’s case. The pamphlet also features the diagrams and ballistics analysis presented in the new Journalists for Mumia flyer explaining why the prosecution scenario used to convict Mumia is ballistically impossible.
