by Labor Action Committee To Free Mumia
Thursday Jun 27th, 2013 1:57 AM
INNOCENT: the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal There will be two Bay Area showings of the new documentary, MANUFACTURING GUILT, which focuses on Mumia's innocence, and how Philadelphia's Police and DA actively manufactured his guilt, on Friday, July 5 in Oakland, and Sunday, July 7 in San Francisco. Speaking at the events will be Keith Cook, Mumia Abu-Jamal's older brother, and Rachel Wolkenstein, lawyer for Mumia, and chief developer of much of the evidence of Mumia's innocence. Also presenting will be Jack Heyman, ILWU Local 10 retired, on the longshore workers' West Coast port shutdown to free Mumia (1999), and Bob Wells, on the Oakland Teachers' Teach-in on Mumia and the Death Penalty (1999).

New Documentary Film Focuses on Mumia's Innocence:


Manufacturing Guilt


How Philadelphia's Police and DA actively manufactured Mumia's guilt, and suppressed his innocence


A short film by Stephen Vittoria, writer/director of "Mumia - Long Distance Revolutionary,"

with Rachel Wolkenstein, lawyer for Mumia, and legal consultant on this film.  

Co-produced by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio.


"Manufacturing Guilt" is a riveting narrative description, with graphics, of how Mumia was framed and sent to death row for a crime he didn't commit.


“’Manufacturing Guilt’ highlights truth. Everybody who has a heart for justice, passion for truth, and concern for the innocent should see this film.”  -Keith Cook (Mumia’s eldest brother)


“’Manufacturing Guilt’ is a chilling and vital inside view of what happened to my beloved father Mumia Abu-Jamal on that forsaken night that forever changed his life—and ours." -Jamal Hart (Mumia’s oldest son)
