December 9th Events to Observe 25th Year of Mumia's Incarceration on Death Row
Mumia Abu-Jamal Keeps Resisting, as Supporters Find Hope in January Hearing
The Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal met on December 2nd, to hear reports about news in the struggle to free Mumia, as critical oral arguments will be presented in a hearing in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals early in 2007. At the meeting, plans for next February's visit that Lynne Stewart and Center for Constitutional Rights President Michael Ratner will make to the Bay Area were discussed. At events in Berkeley, San Francisco, San Jose, and Palo Alto, they will raise funds and consciousness for Mumia's and Lynne's legal and political defenses.

On Saturday, December 9th, people all over the world will mark the 25th year of Mumia's incarceration. In the Bay Area, there will be several opportunities to learn more about Mumia's case. In San Jose, there will be a teach-In about Mumia from 10am-2pm at Temekula Gallery behind the Pagesincolor.com store at 888 E Santa Clara St. Books and CD's by and about Mumia will be available at two additional Bay Area events: at 2pm at Modern Times Bookstore (888 Valencia), and at 7pm at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists, 1924 Cedar St. at Bonita.

Michael Schiffmann's new book-- "Race Against Death. Mumia Abu-Jamal: a Black Revolutionary in White America" was released in Germany in November. Schiffman is reportedly still trying to find a US publisher. The book details information about a new witness and new evidence, and analyzes various aspects of Mumia's case.
