Mumia: A Case for Reasonable Doubt
Film screening and update on the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal
Mumia Abu-Jamal, the people’s journalist, under threat of the death penalty for almost 27 years, remains in great danger. Recently, the 3rd Circuit court turned down his appeal, one based on substantial issues raised before the court. Instead, the three-judge panel in a 2 to 1 decision ruled that Mumia is only entitled to a hearing for re-sentencing to either life without parole or execution.
Join us for an update of the latest developments and a screening of the documentary film “A Case for Reasonable Doubt” outlining the case and the 1981 racist ruling that put Mumia on death row where he remains to this day. Discussion will follow.
